About the Workshop

The arrival of HTML5 signals a major shift in the way we build web pages and applications. HTML5 (and CSS3) combine a "client-side development" mindset with the lessons learned over the past decade to create a rich toolbox for web developers. But all of this richness can be confusing for existing developers learning the new system and it raises questions of how to work with older, less-capable browsers.

In this session, we'll take a fresh look at HTML5 and CSS3 from the ground up. Let's begin with a fresh sheet of paper, design some web pages, create a simple application, and get into the HTML5 mindset. Then we can see how to make this work with older browsers (if needed), the latest mobile browsers, and everything in-between.

Preparing for this workshop:

You should have previous experience creating web pages in a tool such as Dreamweaver, Front Page, or by hand. Please think about a small web project (site or application) and sketch it out on paper before coming. Please bring your laptop running Mac OS, Windows, or Linux. Please install the latest Chrome browser and a text editor. About the Instructor
