Got a taste for it? Be there for the dev track at Web Directions South 2012.
This presentation was recorded at Web Directions Code in Melbourne on May 23 2012.
Get the low-down on this excellent HTML5 feature and learn how you can add it to your own web projects (and why you’d want to!). We’ll also look at some of the missteps made along the way (like the 2011/12 Twitter web interface).
Resources referred to in this presentation
- HTML5 History API tutorial
- Twitter engineer Dan Webb on their choice to use #! URLs
- A History API library that supports older browsers (with #‘s — so beware!)
