Damon Oehlman – HTML5 API Soup
Web Directions South 2011, Sydney, October 14th.
Most jaw-dropping apps use multiple HTML5 APIs in creative ways, rather than a single API in isolation.

Then just for fun we’ll look at how you can dish up something really special by throwing in ingredients like canvas, video and WebGL.
