Web-standards, new tools and updated browsers. The web continues to evolve rapidly and the major industry players are encouraging us towards a standardised and plugin free web. But what’s the reality? During the free 1-day seminar we will explore what’s next with HTML5 and hear real-life experiences from Finnish players about the maturity of JavaScript tools and environments that are on everyone’s lips.

They keynote speak will be delivered by Christian Heilmann(@codepo8 (http://www.twitter.com/codepo8))

Christian takes complex technical things and translate them to various audiences in an understandable format. With about 20 years of experience in web technologies and a background as a Front End Architect he understands the market and the fluctuations of technology and how to find and support talent to both create new products and to talk about them in a sensible fashion. He has published a few books on JavaScript, API design, accessibility and scalable front-end technologies and spoken at dozens of conferences about the now and tomorrow of technology. http://christianheilmann.com/

The event is organised by Microsoft (http://microsoft.fi/) with support from Frontend Finland (http://frontend.fi/), HelsinkiJS (http://helsinkijs.org/) and Helsinki Node.js aka.
