About HTML5 Workshop

This workshop focuses on HTML5 and why it is becoming more important to understand, and even put to use. As the open standard for Web applications, HTML5 takes markup to a new level, requiring Web developers and designers to re-examine the way they've worked in the past, and will be working in days and months to come.

Presented by Molly E. Holzschlag, Web Standards advocate, evangelist, and developer relations team member at Opera Software, the workshop helps to demystify HTML5 as well as provide actual insight into how to begin using aspects of the language today.

The HTML5 workshop focuses on:

  • The history and evolution of markup
  • Why XHTML has been set aside in favor of HTML5
  • What role HTML5 plays in the role of sites and applications
  • Demystifying aspects of HTML5 and clarifying its purpose and usage
  • Providing insight into both the HTML and XML notation methods in HTML5
  • A range of demos of HTML5 in action in a variety of Web browsers
  • New elements in HTML5 and how to use them in current sites and applications
  • Web forms 2.0 - an overview of the elements, attributes and validation features that Web Forms 2.0, part of the HTML specification, provides
  • A look at a range of HTML5 APIs and scripting access
  • HTML5 and Accessibility
  • When to consider using features of HTML5 in current development of sites and applications
