Introduction to a set of tools for creating games. Modit is currently in private beta but in this workshop, we will showcase our HTML5 game development. ModitTM seeks to transform HTML5 games into a new medium for self-expression by turning players into game creators. By bringing a full development environment into the browser, players will be empowered to modify the games they play and instantly publish and share those creations with the world.

Required of attendees: 1) Familiarity with JavaScript is ideal, but basic understanding of any programming language should be sufficient. 2) Laptop with Google Chrome, or Firefox, and Internet connectability. 3) Gmail account to log into the ModIt platform.
