HTML5 For Developers
Wonder what all the fuss is about HTML5? This session will show you how to leverage HTML5 in the applications you are building today. We'll start with a gentle overview describing just what HTML5 is all about and then we'll delve into the details. We'll look at the new elements HTML5 brings to the table, why canvas isn't just something you find in the art department, how geolocation can find Waldo and much much more.
After a brief overview, we'll talk all about feature detection then jump into web forms. We'll discuss the new elements that HTML5 brings to our toolbox. After a spin around the canvas API, we'll touch on geolocation, local storage/offline and finish up web sockets.
