WebGL 2.0: The Future of Browser Based Software Development

WebGL is a JS API that renders graphics intense, interactive 3D computer animations and 2D graphics within a compatible web browser without using any plug-ins or third party render software. WebGL example usage is included in this article. WebGL, nowadays is an integral component of the modern browser. It allows accelerated usage of physics effects and image processing features of the GPU to manipulate vectors in the HTML5 Canvas component of a webpage. Elements of WebGL can be mixed with other parts of the HTML webpage to create immersive backgrounds and highly responsive, real-time graphics that captivate the visitor’s attention. WebGL Software Development programs comprise of a control code written in JS and Shader code that is executed on a client’s GPU. Currently, WebGL is designed and maintained by the Khronos Group; an American non-profit member-funded industry consortium based in Beaverton, Oregon.

In fact, initial concept evolved as a spin-off from the Canvas 3D experiments started by Vladimir Vukicevic at the Mozilla Corporation. However, the official WebGL Working Group was initiated by the Khronos Group in 2009 with participation from browser giants like Google, Apple, Opera and Mozilla. Since 2012 the chair of the working group is KenRussell.

Structure and Usage:
Structurally, the WebGL 1.0 (introduced in March 2011) was based on the OpenGL ES 2.0 and uses the DOM interfaces to access the HTML Canvas element. WebGL expresses Shaders directly in GLSL and does not have fixed-function APIs (discontinued since OpenGL 3.0). However, this functionality can be provided manually in the JS.
The WebGL API is most effectively used in conjunction with some utility libraries that handle different graphics functions. Loading scene graphs and most popular 3D objects arenot included in the standard libraries. However, they can be added to implement market standard functionalities.

Support from Game Engines:
As well as a support from game engines such as Unreal Engine4 and Unity 5. The Stage3D/Flash-based Away3D high-level library also has a port to WebGL via Type Script. Another honorable mention is Sylvester.js, a light library that provides vector and math utilities for shaders used in conjunction with WebGL specific extension glUtils.js.

WebGL also has some 2D libraries like Cocos 2d-x or Pixi.js, which were implemented this way for performance reasons. The WebGL based 2D libraries fall back to HTML5 canvas when WebGL is not available.

Using WebGL removes the rendering bottleneck by giving almost direct access to the GPU Performance limitations in the JS implementations. Creating content for WebGL scenes means using a regular 3D content creation tool and exported to a browser readable format using Autodesk Maya or Blender etc. Mozilla Firefox also offers built-in WebGL tools (since its version 27), that allow editing vertex and fragment shades.

Landing Page Redirects: What to Avoid and What Not to Do?

Avoiding Landing Page Redirects is a major aspect of the website speed optimization guideline for #TechnicalSEO   provided by the Google Developers Network. It is a well known fact that #Google takes all possible precautions to enhance user experience. This includes optimizing any speed issues, broken redirects that trade a visitor like a commodity and URLs that produce a 404 error. This behavior stems from Google’s desire to enhance user interface. Discern the sites with actual value from the sites that actually try to trade their traffics.

Data Visualization with d3.js: The Internet’s Best kept Secret

#DataDrivenDocuments or the D3.js v2.0 came out in the year 2011. It is a #JavaScript library with great potential to aid dynamic and interactive data visualizations in web browsers. It makes use of the widely implemented CSS, SVG and HTML5 standards to manipulate the documents in a web browser using JS. But ever since its inception, there has been little to no justifiable lime light for such a revolutionary JavaScript library. However, despite the lack of mainstream lime light, it has prospered. You might have seen a multitude of modern and awwward winning Data visualization sites that sport powerful graphics and reactive data members. There is about a 60% probability that one of them came bundled with a d3.js library.

Social Media Marketing Tips (#5)

If you do not believe in the effectiveness of your product, you cannot effectively market it. In reality though, you can, but the user won’t buy it. What gave you away was that smirk which crept up your face while discussing its various features. The subconscious mind has a way of expressing suppressed ideas; through body language, in verbal or even in the written form. If you sincerely believe in what you are selling, it shows. When visitors decide to become customers, they get quite sensitive in observing data. 

Even the slightest sign of danger can dissuade them from choosing your service. It is an established fact that if your product is desirable it will sell itself. Similarly, when influencing people to check out that brand new vendor, it helps to use natural language that reflects your own emotions. Use joy to provoke excitement and complexity to invoke sophistication.
