June 30 9:30AMIn the past few years, HTML5 has gone from a Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) project to the official W3C draft revision to HTML, while capturing the imagination of web designers world-wide.
Taught by industry leader and W3C invited expert Tantek Çelik, this workshop will cover everything you need to know in order to take advantage of HTML5's functionality immediately.
You will learn:
** New HTML5 semantics. HTML5 adds several new semantic building blocks modeled on common web publishing patterns.
** Native media. HTML5 has built-in audio, video and even drawing support. Learn how to use these and other features with fallbacks to support browsers as they make the transition.
** Cutting edge features. HTML5 introduces a number of new features that a few browsers have implemented and be used to enhance web applications, when used carefully.
** Bleeding edge features. Learn how you can try some bleeding edge features in experiments, and how to give constructive feedback to the W3C HTML working group to help them improve before HTML5 is finalized!
Please note that this session takes place at San Francisco State University's Downtown Campus: 835 Market Street. Details and directions forthcoming.
June 28 9:30AMHTML5 is the first major revision to the web's lingua franca in over 10 years and disrupting web development as we know it.
In this presentation Tantek illuminates where HTML5 came from, what makes it both easier and more powerful, and which features are ready now, roughly usable, totally ignorable, unfortunately ugly, or worthy of web application experiments. HTML5 is also a work in progress - learn how by using it and providing feedback, anyone can help shape this important update to the foundation of the web.
