Want to write something lightweight and visually expressive that runs on both desktop and mobile devices? Whether your business purpose is to present data, enhance user experience and branding, or just to add some polish to your site, the Canvas 2D API in HTML5 gives you powerful tools. In this talk, we go through the process of building a special effect in JavaScript from scratch. We will generate and animate a few thousand "particles" based on an image, and show it working on both desktop and mobile devices. These techniques are both interesting and powerful, and hopefully will serve to inspire your future projects in some way.
