David Wilson will cover some of the new HTML 5 features he's found
really helpful when building line-of-business applications. Mostly
improvements for forms and inputs:

New form input types
- tel, url, e-mail, range, number
New form validation of input types
- min, max, multiple, pattern, required, step
New input attributes
- autocomplete, autofocus, placeholder, spellcheck,
- formnovalidate, formtarget, formmethod, formenctype

He plans to go into a little detail and show examples of how these are used.


Twitter Bootstrap recently changed from v2.3 to v.3 and there's a lot of changes. It still works the same but you will need to use new class names and install packages. Also, existing templates, tutorials, and themes are mostly still referencing v2.3 classes so they'll need to be updated.

Greg Pugh will show how to install v3 into an ASP.NET MVC 4 internet app and do a quick make over to incorporate bootstrap. He'll show where to get the new examples and the .css class name conversion cheat sheets.
