There is a lot of mixed information about HTML5 out in the open right now and the biggest point of confusion is that everybody wants to play with it without changing their approach to development/design/planning/etc... HTML5 was meant to let everybody play, so that is great but it is important to understand what it means and play it to its strengths.
In this talk Chris Heilmann of Mozilla will debunk a few HTML5 myths, answer some questions that are constantly asked and show how the difference between native and web applications is not a matter of technology but a matter of approach.
HTML5 needs to cater for two groups: the traditional app and game development team and those who are used to building web sites and now want to create web based applications. Chris will show some examples of how both can be made happy, how to avoid being disappointed by understanding the nature of the web and how to avoid locking yourself into closed environments, walled gardens or dictating your clients on what to use. If we embrace open technology we can reap all its benefits, and that is what HTML5 is about.
