Come join us as we explore what coming in HTML5 and how might apply it to your next project

HTML5 is being developed as the next major revision of HTML. It aims to reduce the need for proprietary plug-in-based rich internet application technologies like as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, Apache Pivot, and Sun JavaFX.

Many great new features such as:

  • New html elements and attributes
  • Built in APIs like Drag and Drop, Video, Audio, and Geo-location
  • New CSS Selectors
  • Local web DB storage
  • Web workers
  • Video element
  • Canvas
  • Offline Application Caching
  • and much more...

This will be presented by Matt Lee from the Free Software Foundation. Matt serves on the working group for HTML5 and Social Web at the World Wide Web Consortium.

Matt is also the campaign manager at the Free Software Foundation, creators of the GNU operating which is now most commonly used with the kernel Linux to form the GNU/Linux operating system. At the FSF, Matt leads campaigns against Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) as well as campaigns to promote and protect computer user freedom.

Matt is also the founder and one of the principal creatives behind FooCorp, a company experimenting in music publishing and online social software, including, a new social media site that offers musicians exclusive promotion and play in exchange for licensing their music under a free culture license, and GNU social, a decentralized free software social network. Both and GNU social are written in PHP and licensed under the GNU Affero General Public License.
