HTML5 Now: The Future of Web Markup Today (Part 2 of 2)
This two-part, full-day workshop focuses on HTML5 and why it is becoming more important to understand, and even put to use. As the open standard for web applications, HTML5 takes markup to a new level, requiring web developers and designers to re-examine the way they've worked in the past, and will be working in days and months to come. Presented by Molly E. Holzschlag, Web Standards advocate, evangelist, and developer relations team member at Opera Software, the day helps demystify HTML5 as well as provide actual insight into how to begin using aspects of the language today. This afternoon portion of the workshop focuses on: new elements in HTML5 and how to use them in current sites and applications, an overview of Web Forms 2.0 elements, attributes and validation features for Web Forms 2.0, a look at a range of HTML5 APIs and scripting access, HTML5 and Accessibility, and when to consider using features of HTML5 in current development of sites and applications.
