HTML(5) Now

A session at Web 2.0 Expo New York 2011

Tuesday 11th October, 2011

11:25am to 12:15pm (EST)

HTML5 has captured the minds & hearts of web developers with impressive demos in cutting edge browsers. But what can you actually depend on this month? And is anything dependable in a “living specification”?

In this presentation Tantek illuminates what makes HTML5 both easier and more powerful, and which features are ready now, roughly usable, totally ignorable, unfortunately ugly, or worthy of web application experiments. HTML5 is also a work in progress – learn how by using it and providing feedback, anyone can help shape this important update to the foundation of the web.

Tantek Çelik is a well known open web standards advocate and innovator. He is a founder and community leader of GMPG and microformats.org.
