The proportion of population growing up with unlimited access to the internet and portable digital devices is ever increasing. Accompanying this growth are advances in web-based and mobile technologies that make platform independent applications more viable. Graphical applications are popular with users but remain relatively underdeveloped for platform independence due to their complex nature, and device requirements. Mr McMullen's research combined web-based technologies to create a framework for developing scalable graphical environments while ensuring a suitable level of performance across all device types. The web programming language Dart provides a method for achieving execution across a range of devices with a single implementation. Working alongside Dart, WebGL manages the processing needs for the graphical elements, which are provided by content generative algorithms. This framework serves as an example of how a range of technologies and algorithms can be knitted together to design performant solutions for platform independent applications.
