Enhancing Web Forms with HTML5 & CSS3

This presentation will give an overview of the HTML5 Web Form features in a practical way and hopefully reassure you that it will be easier for developers to create awesome interactive web forms in the near future. 

Topics will include: 

  • How to implement some of the HTML5 form elements, input types and attributes into your website 
  • HTML5 form validation and fallbacks 
  • How to use CSS3 pseudo classes to style interactive states of form elements

The goal is to make this presentation as practical as possible and hopefully stimulate a good discussion where the audience can share their experiences, thoughts and ideas.

If anyone else would like to present a lightning talk or demo, please leave a comment!

    I guess UStream is the next best, free option. Connect is not free, but there's a 1-month free Trial - http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobatconnectpro/trial/. It is free for Adobe local user groups, and there are 2 in Vancouver.

    Hi Eric. We should be able to set something up. Henry, thanks for the suggestion. Do you have access to the software? I know the web design meetup uses UStream. I'll look into some options. Cheers.

  • Henry H.

    @Eric +1, I suggest Adobe Connect
