Modern web apps are rich, interactive applications that look nothing like your mother's web page. You'll learn about the latest techniques, new frameworks, and how to use HTML5 to create a new class of web apps that will delight and amaze your users.
HTML5 is more than just a pretty logo; it's a solid foundation upon which you can build web apps that meet or exceed user expectations for native apps. Here, we'll detail key features of HTML5 and related open web technologies such as CSS3, graphics, offline, storage and more. We'll walk you step-by-step through new and exciting APIs you'll need to construct your own cutting-edge web applications.

When & Where
No one masters self employment without help from others. As more and more people pursue independent careers, the need for structure, education, and shared accountability grows accordingly. Just as industries have risen to accommodate the needs of a white collar employed workforce, so too will new services be built for the new independent workforce.
To this end, we provide a platform that allows participants to to create programs that are geared toward this goal. These efforts take the forms of classes, workshops, coworking sessions, mentorships, speaker series, and more. The program is driven by a core belief that each participant has something to teach and something to learn from everyone else.
