HTML 5 ... and the Kitchen Sink
HTML 5 is an adventurous and confusing prospect that will help change the Web as we know it. It is being finalized as a standard but won't be fully supported by most browsers for quite some time. Companies like Apple and Google have already committed to it as the future of Web application development, however. There are a huge number of new features, updates and gotchas coming at us (including the proverbial kitchen sink!) so it is time to get prepared. This talk will walk you through the new bits and try to put it all into perspective.
Attendees will learn about HTML 5 and related specs including:
- New and deprecated elements
- Immediate mode 2D drawing w/ the canvas element
- Timed media playback
- Local storage and offline mode
- Bi-directional communication sockets to servers
- Messaging between documents
- Drag and drop support
- And much more!
There will be a lot covered but this should be accessible to anyone interested in Web development.
