What we're about

Public Group

The HTML5 developers group is for people to get together and talk about how we’re starting to build applications using HTML5, CSS3, and modern JavaScript. It’s intended for both traditional front-end developers moving from websites to the larger world of web applications, as well as native/rich internet application developers who are looking to transfer their skills to these up-and-coming technologies.

There are already great HTML5 and JavaScript groups in New York so we're hoping to do something a little different. Instead of a single large presentation per event, we'll be trying to do one 30–45 minute and two or three 10 minute lightning talks. The intention is that events will be a lot less formal and will encourage attendees to share their thoughts and experience with the rest of the group.

We'll try to mix up talks every event so they'll be content for both people approaching the platform and for experienced front-end engineers wondering how traditional techniques such as design patterns and tools make sense in this brave new JavaScript world.

We're only just getting started, so if you have any thoughts or suggestions please get in touch. Also, if you're interesting in sponsoring the group in any capacity, we'd love to hear from you.
