I intend to document what I learn as I develop examples of HTML5 for use in various classes. I also tend to include notes for CSS3 and SVG as time permits.
As I update these pages, I hope to share some insights as to what works and what doesn't in various browsers. As you may suspect, Internet Explorer 8 does not render these pages very well). There are a number of emerging HTML5 features.
These are some of the presentations I have made concerning HTML5.
- What's all the fuss about HTML5 - Indiana University (Nov. 12, 2010)
- Presentation recording (Nov. 12, 2010) [opens in a new window/ tab]
- HTML5 - what should I be teaching - Adobe Education Leaders (Oct. 14, 2010)
- Recording of encore presentation on Jan. 20, 2011 (Oct. 14 session had technical difficulties and the recording was lost).
I also hope to include a section on development for mobile devices (such as the Android) as I learn more about that topic.
Periodically, I run these pages through the experimental HTML5 conformance checker at the W3C site. (http://validator.w3.org/) is the URL. I also validate the CSS periodically. This means that at any given point in time these pages may not validate. If that is the case, just let me know and I will be glad to explain the current state of these pages.
I have identifiied various sites which I find helpful as I continue to refine my HTML5 skills. Many of these will be listed on the reference page. You may also find some of the tools I list of interest.
