HTML5 on the Frontline

6:00 - 7:00: Making your UI scream (not your users), Wesley Hales

Execution of JavaScript, CSS and other web application resources inthe browser can make or break your site. Today, front-end developers should be thinking about everything from base64’ing images into their CSS to JavaScript and UI thread blocking while the page loads. It’s important to know how fast your app is now and what steps you can take to reduce load time - ultimately leading to better SEO rankings, more lead conversions, and lower costs on bandwidth in the data center.

7:00 - 7:30: Snack and socialize

7:30 - 8:30: HTML5 on the Frontline, Wesley Hales

Is HTML5 ready for production code? You bet! This is a look into allthe different HTML5 technologies that can be used in your code, today. We'll review a collection of tips, tricks, and best practices for HTML5 and W3C APIs such as Web Storage, Web Sockets, Web Workers, Geolocation, and Device Orientation. We’ll examine how these APIs contrast between desktop and mobile environments, then we’ll go into a deep dive on real world implementations for each one.

      I'm in the process of upgrading right now -- trying to add a bit more fault tolerance. Sorry for the downtime.

    Will the slides from the lecture be available any where for download? There was a lot of material covered and I would like to look them over later.

    Going to be a hit/miss for me the timing will make it exceedingly difficult to get up there form the DTC. Will discuss with my lead to try to get clearance.

    I have node.js class up in Boulder every Monday night clear in to May. Is there a way to view these later, as a recording?
