HTML5 is a buzzword, let’s admit it. What I’ll show you in this workshop is how the latest buzzword-compliant technologies can work in browsers and are ready for production today.

As browsers are increasingly supporting the features of the vast JavaScript APIs both in and around the official HTML5 spec, it’s making the job of creating awesome applications purely using these web technologies very easy indeed.

The workshop will include the new HTML elements, Web Storage, drawing APIs, Web Sockets, DOM APIs and more.

Who is this workshop for?

You’re not expected to have played with HTML5 just yet, but you will need to have a reasonable understanding of HTML & JavaScript. A lot of the individual APIs are being used in popular web sites today both in desktop browsers and mobile, so rest assured that this applies to developers that are working on the web today.
