This book is the companion reading to the Udacity course on HTML5 game development that Colt McAnlis and Peter Lubbers taught ( [...]). It's the most essential reading on proper browser app engineering for the front- and back-ends since Steve Souders penned "High Performance Web Sites" ([...]) in 2007. Scalability, flexibility, responsible mobile asset management, performant apps - this is chock-full of life lessons any dev should commit to memory.
