The Bleeding Edge of HTML5 by Brandon Satrom


By now, you've probably seen a thousand "intro to HTML5 talks," and read just a many articles on the same subject. You know about semantic markup, audio and video, CSS transforms and transitions, media queries and more. You've heard of Canvas and SVG, and know that Web Sockets are awesome, even if you haven't used them directly yourself. You've also probably heard of Modernizer and "Polyfilling", and how to support these new technologies across most or all browsers. You're an HTML5 pro, congratulations! But if you think you know HTML5, think again. Beyond the "sexy" and highly-touted HTML5 technologies that we see and hear about every day lies the bleeding edge of HTML5, the web technologies of tomorrow and beyond. Some of these technologies are so out there that it may be years before we see them fully-supported. Others will catch fire so quick they might be standardized by the time this session is over. No matter which category a technology falls into, you need to know about all of these, and this session will give you a picture of how the web is evolving beyond the HTML5 technologies you're using today.

Speaker Bio:

Brandon Satrom (@BrandonSatrom) is Program Manager for Kendo UI and is based in Austin, TX. A unapologetic lover of the open web, Brandon loves to talk about HTML, JavaScript, CSS, open source and whatever new shiny tool or technology has distracted him from that other thing he was working on. Brandon has spoken at several regional and national events (like CodeMash and TechEd, to name a few), and he loves hanging out with and learning from other passionate developers, both online and in person. He also loves writing and, in addition to having several articles featured in publications like MSDN Magazine and .net Magazine, he's hard at work on a book ("Building Apps for Windows 8 in JavaScript") with Chris Sells, slated for release in late 2012.

    The html5 presentation was exciting and invigorating. Looking forward to seeing some of these features make their way into browsers in the near future!

    Brandon is definitely a thought leader and forward thinker on HTML5 and associated technologies.. feeling both enriched and unsettled (in good sense) as my feeling to go little deeper with HTML 5 is more prominent than ever before ..
