HTML5, What Works, How to Use It, and Where Do I Find All That at Dev Summit
Chart a path to the places where you are most to likely find the information you need on HTML5 support, demos, and example code. Bryan Sullivan will present “HTML5: What Works, How to Use It, and Where Do I Find All That?” at the upcoming AT&T Developer Summit, January 9, 2012.
What do you do and where do you go to find out how to use a particular HTML5 feature or learn whether it works on a specific device or browser? How do you make sure that this information is readily available, recent, and—most importantly—accurate? There are many information sources out there, but few summarize the device and browser landscape, and the accuracy and freshness of the information varies. When finished, you will have a better understanding of the sources of HTML5 support, demos, and example code. For example, server-based Web apps are business-as-usual, but what are the options for installing Web apps on user devices, and in particular how well does this work via the HTML5 Application Cache feature? This session will also include demos of using the HTML5 Application Cache to install Web apps, compared to W3C widgets, browser-specific approaches such as Chrome Web Apps and Firefox Open Web Apps, as well as WebView approaches like PhoneGap.
