    Thanks all for coming out! Yael and I had a great time presenting and the back and forth with all of you was great. I've posted the slides here: http://www.lukemelia.com/blog/archives/2012/03/15/presentation-tapping-into-mobile-ui-with-html-5/

    We had to sacrifice our font, Archer, to get Slideshare to display properly... <sniff> so those who attended had the best experience.

    If you have follow up questions, feel free to post here, on my blog, or tweet us at @lukemelia and @yaelsahar

    Learned a lot of new stuff since I'm not a designer. The event handling in mobile browsers is also very tricky which I have not had a chance to encounter. Its great to have resources filtered by the speakers

    This was a vary good presentation. I thought they did a great job of tag teaming the presentation and it was weighted evenly between mobile UX and HTML5 development. Thanks.
