Immediately following this session, Google’s Kenneth Russell and Mozilla’s Bobby Richter will discuss the latest insights into WebGL from two browser vendors that have shipping implementations. This session includes a walkthrough of one of the leading WebGL content engines, and a CubicVR overview and tutorial:
- Kenneth Russell is a Software Engineer for Google’s Chrome GPU team, and Chair of the WebGL Working Group.

“While many companies have made the mistake of focusing on device specific solutions, like Apple’s IOS, the reality is that HTML5 is providing a common platform for delivering the same look & feel across a mobile phone, a gaming console, a tablet, a computer, or a television,” said Crossfire Media’s Carl Ford. “Our conference in New York this week examines the evolution of the browsing experience and helps attendees understand the design requirements, the security issues, and the new opportunities that HTML5 provides.”
