In this meeting, we’ll go beyond the “What is HTML5?” introduction to focus on practical strategies, libraries, polyfills, shims, etc. for adopting HTML5 (and related) technologies today. Of course, users will visit your site with a variety of browsers, each supporting their own subset of these features, so we’ll talk about strategies for tuning reach, including progressive enhancement, graceful degradation, and testing.
