Workshop Details

HTML5 has gained a lot of attention over the last 12 months. With browsers 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.

This full day workshop will introduce you to HTML5 with a brief backstory, before diving into the APIs one by one. As well as going through code and showing practical demonstrations, where possible, we'll also talk about the alternatives for old browsers that don't support "awesome" out of the box.

What will be covered?

Video & audio – move over Flash
Canvas – bring on the Mario games
Storage – like cookies, but tastes so much better
Offline – forget the web
Geolocation – finders keepers
Web Workers – multithreading for the browser
Web Sockets – pushing data was never so easy

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.

Organised in association with Full Frontal JavaScript conference on Friday 12 November 2010
