Devices have caught up; That is, our technology dreams from the mid 90’s have finally been realised. However since this time, HTML has lay dormant. We’ve been through a decade of tech wasteland. It’s time to change the status quo and take back the web.
During my session we’ll look at where the future of HTML lies, including new structural elements. You’ll also grasp an introduction to associated technologies that have come into popularity with the steam of HTML5: SVG, Web Sockets, Web Workers, Geo-location and making applications useful offline.

Remember how fun it was to do hands-on classroom projects together in kindergarten? Well, this interactive session is going to be like that, but just with bigger people.
In the first part of the session, I’ll hand out blank report cards, and each of us will — individually and based on whatever criteria we personally want to use — use those report cards to assign A, B, C, D, and E letter grades to particular new features that are part of HTML5 and related specifications that are supported to some degree in browsers.
Then I’ll collect those, and use the info to judge which HTML5 features to focus the discussion on during the second part of the session. During the second part of the session, we’ll make a handful of poster-side HTML5 Report Cards together, by taking a look at the HTML5 features we identified during the first part of the session, and then assigning A, B, C, D, and E letter grades to those together — based on the current quality of the features/implementations, and on criteria such as if/how well the features actually work as expected, as well as on some criteria such as “plays well with others”, “areas where improvement is needed”, etc.
