High Performance HTML5 with Steve Souders


About the Talk

For years we built web apps that far outpaced the capabilities of the browsers they ran in. Just as the browsers were catching up HTML5 came on the scene - video and audio, canvas, SVG, ApplicationCache, Web Storage, @font-face, ContentEdible, WebSockets, Web Workers, and more. Now the browsers are racing to stay ahead of the wave that's building as developers adopt these new capabilities.

Is your HTML5 app going to ride the wave or be dashed on the rocks leaving users stranded? Learn which HTML5 features to seek out and avoid when it comes to building fast HTML5 web apps.
