Build a multiplayer game with Vue and pub/sub messaging

If you, like me, have been playing lots of multiplayer games while social distancing, you may have felt some frustration at game complexity, or install time or any of a number of hurdles that stop your friends from joining in. Surely we as web developers can do better than this?! Let’s build a game!

It’s 2021 and we’re still mid pandemic, which means we’re social distancing and missing our friends. Many of us have been playing multiplayer games in place of hanging out with our friends. But have you considered building your own games?

This talk will go over how to build a fun multiplayer game which runs in the browser. The game will use Vue.js, real-time messaging, peer to peer architecture and some simple state management, and we’ll cover how and why I chose these technologies. By talk end you’ll have all the knowledge you need to build a fun game for your friends and family.
