Hardcore HTML

Everyone knows HTML, right? Sort of. Rather than rehashing divs, spans, and img tags, we're going to dive deep into the semantics of html (much of this is HTML5, some is oft-ignored HTML4). We're going to investigate the bleeding edge (some of these aren't even implemented in browsers yet... but most are).

Whether you are a hardcore coder, a designer, or just a part-time web enthusiast, I guarantee you'll learn something new.

Did you know:

Modern browsers support a "required" attribute, stoping an empty field from being submitted without javascript?

There is are special "email", "phone number", and graphical range input types?

There are built-in <meter> and <progress> tags which render as graphics?

When you should use <article>, and when to use <section>?

There's a new "scoped" style spec allowing you to embed CSS that only effect a segment of your DOM?

When older browsers don't support the newest HTML types, there are some really easy scripts to make them backward compatible?

    It was the first such meetup in Portland that I get something out of. Good presentation on the new elements of HTML 5, and some of the reasoning behind the changes.

    Eric gave a great presentation on html past, present, and future. He was right about having something for everyone beginner to advanced. He also did a good job of keeping the discussion focused on the semantics of html and explaining what that meant.

    There were a few things that I disagreed with, but the crowd was great and eric had a great handle on whats out there right now. The biggest thing I disagreed with was encouraging everyone to include modernizr for the html5shiv function; it's a pretty hug overhead for something that can be included in a condition comment for old unsupportive browsers (not discounting the benefits of modernizr). Eric had a ton to say, it seemed like it was more aimed at someone just learning html though. As someone that uses html5 everyday, there wasn't a whole lot of new information presented.

    However, due to a tight schedule, this one will actually begin at 6:45, and end at 8pm. Of course, people can come at 6 if they want to hang out, chat, and be the first to get some pizza

    Around 8:30
