Even though the specification is still being written, HTML5 can be implemented for your website today. This workshop is focused on real world solutions; attendees will learn about the new HTML elements and their semantics, HTML5 form elements, incorporating audio and video without Flash, new JavaScript APIs like geolocation, and more:

Basic Web Page Syntax
How to create that basic page or convert an existing XHTML page to HTML5.
Progressive HTML5 Markup and Techniques
Insuring that your page works in older browsers that didn’t get the email about HTML5, like old versions of IE.
Accessibility
Look at what’s new in regards to accessibility and HTML5.
GeoLocation
Taking advantage of knowing where your site visitors shouldn’t be creepy. Instead, with native geolocation support in browsers we look at how to provide enhanced information that your visitors can act on.
Audio/Video
Examining how to include multimedia natively in modern browsers and the file formats they support. Also, we will examine approaches on how to deal with Flash video vs. HTML video browser landscape.
Web Forms
Finally, we look at want is new with HTML5 web forms as well as cross-browser approaches.

Not quite ready to dive in to the deep end of HTML5? Then you might want to attend Christopher’s hour-long session, HTML5 Does All That… And I Can Has Cheeseburger? You Bet!, instead for an entertaining overview of HTML5.
