The Fall and Rise of OpenGL for Games by Conan Bourke

DirectX has been the king of graphics API’s for years, driving the market and helping define a standard for all games. But now, with the proliferation of new hardware and platforms, and the lack of updates to DirectX, OpenGL has claimed its rightful throne as king of the API’s. But for how long?

The Augmented Web by Rob Manson

Overview:The Augmented Web brings a unique perspective that pushes standards,APIs, hardware and the broader web platform to the edge of theirperformance limits.

The Augmented Web embraces the changes brought about by WebRTC and otherHTML5 related standards including Geolocation, DeviceOrientation,DeviceMotion, WebGL, Web Audio, Media Capture & Streams and more.

The Augmented Web integrates all of these disparate technologies intoone integrated new vision for the web - the sensor driven real-time webof things.

This session will look at working applications that clearly point towhere this new path is taking us. It will demonstrate why WebRTC isunleashing the Augmented Web and which upcoming Khronos standards willlead the way.
