HTML5 Hands-On - Chump to Champ - Part 1 (Academy Zone - Night Shift)

This is a course to chomp it up. It is for everyone - from absolute non-developers to hardcore programmers - who always wished to conquer this powerful new technology. We will start at the very basics and go all the way to the advanced features.

Why 8:15PM? It gives you time to get something to eat, settle down and run errands.  This is a Night Shift Course that will follow our regularly scheduled meetup.   Samir Damle will be participating in our round table discussion on best practices leveraging HTML5 and JavaScript for mobile development prior to instructing this course.

Checkout the reviews from Samir's previous event Google Technology and Developer Group - Washington DC.

This is Part 1 and will cover -
- What is HTML5
- Basics
- Head tags
- Semantic tags
- The new Form Elements
- Local storage
- Geo-location

This is a hands-on course, so get your laptops (and chargers).

Minimum requirements:
- Laptop
- A code editor like Vim(Linux), Xcode(Mac) or Notepad++(Windows)
- Webkit browser like Chrome or Safari

Part 2 (TBD) will cover more advanced features like drag-drop, audio-video, canvas, mobile apps, etc.

Speaker/Trainer/UX Specialist: Samir Damle is a User Experience Designer and a technology enthusiast who has been designing web apps since the days of Netscape. He works at Infor in Herndon and is frequently found in local tech meetups and hackathons.

    I think it was very successful. Samir did a good job showing what the new HTML5 webpage structure looks like and introducing some general HTML concepts. Wish we had more time though.
