A Basic canvas map scrolling example

Time now for another one of my canvas examples, this time I think I will make a basic example of a scrolling map. This is something that will come into play for many projects that are some kind of game that involves a large world map of cells or tiles.

Blog plan for 2020

I have made a habit of writing a post on the subject of bogging in general rather than javaScript, and javaScript related topics at the start of a new year. So this will be a yet another blog plan post for the year of 2020. No buddy really seams to read these, but thats okay its more for my sake anyway because it is important for me to know where this site is going, and what the next move should be moving forward.
