Ben Schwarz — Building a better web with HTML5
Web Directions South 2010, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, October 14 11.45am.
Devices have caught up; That is, our technology dreams from the mid 90’s have finally been realised. However since this time, HTML has lay dormant. We’ve been through a decade of tech wasteland. It’s time to change the status quo and take back the web.
During my session we’ll look at where the future of HTML lies, including new structural elements. You’ll also grasp an introduction to associated technologies that have come into popularity with the steam of HTML5: SVG, Web Sockets, Web Workers, Geo-location and making applications useful offline.
