Join us as we explore what's coming in HTML5 and how you might apply it to your next project.

HTML5 is being developed as the next major revision of HTML. Along with technologies like SVG, CSS3, and various APIs, the HTML5 Platform aims at enabling rich Web applications, including with video and graphic animation. Major Web browsers are all rushing to implement this new wave.

Many great new features such as:


  • New HTML elements and attributes
  • Built in APIs like Drag and Drop, Video, Audio, and Geolocation
  • CSS3 goodies: New Selectors, Borders, Media Queries, Transformations, Transitions, etc.
  • Local storage: Web Storage, Indexed Database
  • Web workers
  • Video element
  • Canvas and its 2D API
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
  • WOFF, the Web Open Font Format
  • RDFa and Microdata
  • and much more...


This will be presented by Philippe Le Hegaret of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Philippe heads the team responsible for standardizing frontend Web technologies including HTML5, CSS3, SVG, WOFF, or Web APIs. He is a former Chair of the Document Object Model (DOM) Working Group and wrote the first version of the W3C CSS validator back in 1997.

Philippe Le Hegaret heads the W3C Interaction Domain and he oversees the development of technologies that shape the Web?s user interface, including HTML5, CSS3, SVG, WOFF, and Web APIs. In addition to his focus on developing W3C?s open web platform standards, he oversees standards work in SMIL, MathML, Internationalization, Video on the Web and XForms.

Until July 2008, Philippe lead the W3C Architecture Domain, which produced the W3C Core technologies in the area of XML, Web Services, and Internationalization. He is a former Chair of the Document Object Model (DOM) Working Group.

Prior to joining W3C, Philippe promoted the use of XML inside Bull in 1998, where he also received the Bull R&D XML award for his work focusing on the interaction between XML and object structures.
