HTML5, the current status



Schedule: , , ,

Currently HTML5 is a hot, though also rather confusing, topic. HTML5 promises a wealth of new possibilities to embed multimedia content – until recently the exclusive domain of plug-ins – and to create powerful, desktop-like web applications. But are these new technologies something to consider for the not-too-distant future, or is HTML5 already a viable, production-ready language for today’s projects? What’s browser support like? And is HTML5 really the “Flash-killer” that many web developers have been waiting for? This talk will give developers an overview of where HTML5 is coming from, where it’s headed, and take a closer look at some of the exciting new JavaScript APIs that are finding their way into browsers right now.
