GameDuell invites the Berlin tech community to the next edition of its TechTalk event series. On September 10th 2014 Nicolas Cannasse will introduce the audience to the cross-platform toolkit Haxe that he has developed in the recent years. The evening lecture will start at 19:00, doors open at 18:30.

Haxe is an open source toolkit based on a modern, high level programming language. With Haxe, developers can easily build cross-platform tools targeting all the mainstream platforms natively: Flash, iOS, Android, HTML5, Java, C++, PHP, Python and some more.

It includes a cross-compiler and a complete cross-platform standard library to access each platform's native capabilities. The streaming service TiVo and presentation tool Prezi already make use of Haxe to run their applications on different platforms. During the GameDuell TechTalk Nicolas Cannasse will give an overview about the architecture of Haxe, the tools interacting with it and present some use cases. Everyone who is interested, can register via XING Events for free.

 

Writing cross-platform libraries with Haxe

Nicolas Cannasse will start his GameDuell TechTalk with a look behind the curtain of Haxe, introducing the architecture of the framework and the functionality from the user’s point of view. He will continue to discuss the tools interacting with Haxe such as the IDEs, OpenFL and other libraries. Crossing over to the practical usage Nicolas Cannasse will explain how to write cross-platform libraries using the haxe cross-platform APIs giving examples of his own development work like scripting in Haxe, Castle DB, a Heaps engine with shader system, the cross-platform game Evoland as well as third-party projects like the the ones of TiVo and Prezi.
