Great talk. I got a great deal of info out of this workshop.

I enjoyed learning about what's different in HTML5/CSS3 compared to previous web technologies, and also really liked the way the presenters engaged with the attendees. Also great was the interactive content- it was cool to get a package of files, roll up sleeves and try some stuff out. I'll admit I was expecting something a bit different from this workshop- I was hoping to attend a workshop that would demonstrate specific tips and techniques for prototyping using these tools. Instead, it felt like a workshop about using these tools for building production sites with a lot of emphasis on cross browser support for browsers, for example. Don't get me wrong - very interesting topic, but just a mismatch with what I was expecting. Still, your workshop was a thought provoking way to start the conference and I'm looking forward to reading your book and using HTML5/CSS3 on my projects. Thanks!

Just a little too basic. Most of the people at our table were way beyond "how to close a tag." The content that was shared toward the end of the session should have been at the beginning and built up from there.

@vincente "How to close a tag" was a single comment during the entire 3hr workshop. The rest of the workshop focused on how to best utilize HTML5's tags to structure your design from a data modeling perspective, how to use those tags appropriately to create semantic structure, how to best use the new attributes, how to use CSS3 for things that previously required images and how to write a javascript function to create simultaneous ajax transitions. That's hardly an accurate account of the workshop.
