HTML5 Roadshow at NIC May 20-24

Hi Folks, 

The is coming to town (it says DC on the site, but it is in Reston, VA at Near Infinity's training center).

This is a great series of HTML5 training days, each day offered individually. They are taught by Scott Davis and Kyle Simpson, both experts in the new Web Platform standards. I've seen these guys speak before and loved it. Both are great teachers worth going out of your way to see.

The information that I have on these classes is that they are "all typing, all the time". So, you will get lots of hands on experience. Also, they are "backend agnostic" so they apply to anyone just wishing to learn the front end without respect to your backend architecture.

From the email I got from Scott Davis: A 60 minute UG talk is a great way to get introduced to a topic, but you can't really learn it until you type it yourself and "prove it in code". The HTML5 Roadshow is a series of hands-on, in-depth workshops taught by industry experts. This is intermediate-to-advanced "cask-strength" training targeted at working professionals in the field.

The specific session days are:

The Modern Web Developer's Toolkit on May 20
Advanced JavaScript: The "What You Need To Know" Parts on May 21
Airplane-Mode HTML5: Mobile Web Development for Tablets and Smartphones on May 22
Unleash The Faster Web: Secrets of Website Performance on May 23
Node.js: More than just another web server on May 24

Sounds great. I know I will be at a couple of these.
