Event Details

Practical HTML5
At the moment HTML5 is one of the hyped technologies. All we need to do is start using HTML5 and everything will just work exactly as we expect in each browser. And so the fairy tale continues.
As everyone who has developed a web application knows, the truth is not quite that simple. Even if every browser vendor would implement all features from the assorted HTML5 specifications today it would still take quite some time before all users have upgraded their browsers. Even today you can expect about 10% of your traffic to be from Internet Explorer 8, a browser we would hardly consider HTML5 compatible.  And to make matters worse the browser vendors are far from perfect either.
Does this mean we shouldn't use HTML5 features? No it doesn't!
It does however mean you have to cater for browsers that don’t support features. In this session Maurice de Beijer will cherry pick those HTML5 features that you can use and he will show you which features should be avoided.
Maurice de Beijer is an independent software consultant and trainer specializing in  HTML5, REST, JavaScript,  ASP.NET MVC, WF4 and WCF,.
