Session Details

Getting Started with HTML5

PST Poster Sessions Track

Texas Ballroom 1-3


Are you a front-end developer, template coder, or HTML/CSS jockey who is wondering whether it is time to start designing and building in HTML, or how to convert your existing (X)HTML sites? This session will introduce you to this still-evolving standard. We'll run through some of the new tags, the browser-compatibility issues, and strategies on how to structure, re-structure, or re-think your content for HTML5. And we'll throw in a little HTML5 video and -- what the heck -- some mobile Web techniques as well. A note: this session will NOT cover CSS3. We will also not cover the canvas tag, because frankly I don't understand that one at all.
