Agenda


  • 6:00-7:00pm Dinner and Networking

  • 7:00-7:30pm Seth Ladd, Introduction to HTML5

  • 7:40-8:10pm Tab Atkins Jr., HTML5 and Tags

  • 8:20-8:50pm Nathan Naze, Closure JavaScript Library and HTML5


Seth Ladd will start things off with a general introduction to HTML5. He will talk about why it's important, what it is, and give an overview of the features. Seth is a Developer Advocate for Google, focusing on the Chrome platform and HTML5. He just moved from Hawaii, a very bittersweet transition. He is looking forward to decent Mexican food, though.
Tab Atkins Jr. will go next and do a presentation on the and tags. You will learn the magical things you can do when you combine them together. Tab is a Software Engineer at Google. He specializes in standards-based website coding that produces good results in
*all* current browsers and stands a strong chance of being beautiful in future browsers.
Nathan Naze will speak last about the Closure Library, a JavaScript library on which most of Google's web applications are written. Specifically for this talk, he'll point out some of the parts of the library most specific to HTML5 features, as well as some of the demos. Nathan is a software engineer at Google, working on user interface for Google Books, one of many projects using Closure Library. He helped open source the library in fall of 2010 as part of the Closure Tools suite. Finally, our members are encouraged to take advantage of these other Silicon Valley GTUG resources:

    3 talks. First was good. Second was less relevant to my actual usage of HTML5, but still interesting.

    I am glad to see a change in the sandwich caterer, even though it was all gone when I arrived. Hope to taste this new menu at the next mmetup. I do not enjoy Togos, which has been the standard for much too long.

    We did have a volunteer making a video recording last night. When it is available on our YouTube channel, I will post the link back here and probably send an email as well to the meetup members.

    Great talks and I specially liked to see actual code and video manipulation.

    I felt things were a little rushed, perhaps not enough time to cover everything in depth. I would have loved to see more complex examples of HTML5 and Closure Library uses.

    I'm looking forward to fast adoption of HTML5.
    Seth, Tab and Nathan did a great job covering a lot a ground from differing angles.

    Is there a recorded webcast of these events available ?

    The presentation started earlier than scheduled and no food and drink left for many people who came after 6:30 PM. The Google guy said the food at kitchen is only for their staff not to GTUG and left us hungry and thirsty at the seminar.

    Very good presentations on HTML 5 and Canvas & Video. I felt the Closure Compiler presentation was excellent. A very good session!

    Disappointed at first that Seth just went through html5rocks, but it was a nice overview nonetheless. Cool demo by Tab. I did not realize video manipulation could be done so simply, though it did not appear that things could get too much more complicated without major lag.

    Seth Ladd was totally awesome! I thought when he said he was going to do a basic html5 talk, the fun was over. He added lots of really interesting stuff including his perspective on things. Not "just" nuts and bolts.

    I'm coming from the city and I'm rather new to the area, would it be advisable to travel 101 or pick up 82 to avoid rush hour traffic (~4PM)? Thanks in advance.
