  • One Codebase, Endless Possibilities: Real HTML5 Hacking

    by Joe McCann

    HTML5 is no question the "buzzword du jour" in tech nowadays, but looking past the vernacular cruft one will discover that the HTML5 technology STACK is actually an incredibly powerful & useful framework for apps well beyond the traditional web browser. Massive companies like Google and Hewlett Packard are placing huge bets on the future of "HTML5 App development". From HP/Palm's WebOS to be used in their mobility products to Google's Chrome OS, HTML5 is not simply another buzzword that can be treated as a mere passing trend, but should actually be taken seriously for app development.

    But what makes up the HTML5 stack and how will it truly be the future of software? What are the benefits & risks associated with using the HTML5 stack? Prove to me it works. All of these questions & demands will be answered & showcased in the presentation including important issues such as:

    • What constitutes the HTML5 stack
    • Benefits of using the HTML5 stack
    • Use a single codebase
    • Rapidly prototype an app targetting multiple devices including: iPhone, iPad, Android Devices, Chrome OS Devices, Mobile Webkit Browsers, Desktop Browsers
    • Target thousands of developers for extensibility & community development
    • See code & install an actual working HTML5 app that works on a number of devices
    • See code best practices in use for tailoring the UI based on the user's device
