James Brown of GulfToBayTech.com will be sharing his knowledge of HTML5.
Join the discussion on HTML5 development. Learning and Sharing is what the BarCamp experience is all about. This meetup is just an extension of that.
Thursday, Dec. 15th at 6:45 at The Grape at International Mall at Microsoft HQ at 5426 Bay Center St., which is off Kennedy on Mariner Point.
HTML5 is here and isn't just hype any longer. The major browsers are already supporting it and if you don't start learning it, you could be left behind. We will review features and enhancements that are changing the web as we know it. This isn't some high-level overview. We're going dive right into code and look at examples you can use today. We'll also discuss how to code for backwards compatibility with older browsers. Lastly, we'll explore how to use HTML5 on mobile devices. You aren't going to want to miss this meeting!
