Training: "HTML 5 Workshop"

Time: Tuesday 09:00 - 16:00

Location: Rutherford Room, Fourth Floor


People are confused about the status of HTML 5. Is it ready? Is it not? What is part of the spec and what isn't? We will introduce the most exciting new features of HTML 5 and its related technologies and build examples that use them. We will also visit some of the security issues associated with these technologies.

We will work with real code covering:

The new input elements
Editable content
Canvas Element and its related 2D APIs for drawing and animation
Audio and Video elements and how to use fallbacks for codec coverage
Browser native drag and drop
Local storage
Web Workers
The Geolocation API
Web DB (SQL in the browser!)
This workshop will assume no special knowledge of HTML 5 and should be accessible to any web developers.

Bring your laptops. This is a hands-on workshop.
