For the last twenty years, we have been creating websites from inside of a certain set of constraints—inside the limits of the technology that runs the web. We became so used to those constraints, we stopped thinking about them. But HTML5 changes many of these limits. The new HTML specs define a lot more than markup—there’s a lot about databases, communication protocols, and how websites & browsers talk to each other. It’s radical stuff that will redefine the creature formerly known as the “web page.” In this talk, Jen will walk us through the new possibilities created by HTML5’s APIs and how they will shape the web of the future.
