Event Details

Join us for this free, informal afternoon of learning and playing with two topics: creating HTML5 Canvas animations and implementing Internet Explorer 9 Site Pinning in a few clicks.
Don’t forget to stay for the evening Microsoft Webcafe event where one of the participants will be able to present their project to the whole group. Oh, and we will have some nice prizes for the best or most creative implementations of the day.

What is the workshop?

The Webcafe hands-on pre-event is an afternoon session where we do two short presentations and attendees have the possibility to get their hands dirty on some new technology. There are two topics brought to you:

  • See how HTML5 Canvas lets you create cool animations and games
  • IE9 “Pin my site”: get more brand visibility and higher engagement on your site from IE9 users. In just a few easy steps you’ll have your site “pinnified”

Agenda

14h00: Get creative with the tag
After an introduction to HTML5 Canvas coupled to some demos you’ll get to chance to build an animation or game with the tag.
The animator and expert on site will be none the less than Stijn Van Minnenbruggen (@donotfold) from These Days.

16h00: Pin your site in IE9
Get to know how you can add value to the sites you build by allowing to pin them and build custom jump lists. Afterwards we’ll help you to pin your own site.

We’ll pick some winners for both topics and allow them to demo what they’ve realized during the actual Webcafe that starts later that evening.

What should I bring?

Just your laptop and an interest in learning and participating.

Preparing your machine:

You can use any of your favorite tools for web development. If you want our advice and use of the free Microsoft Visual Studio tools here’s what you can already install on your machine
