This workshop steps you through building an HTML5/CSS3 application that’s free from legacy baggage yet still delivers compelling content everywhere. We re-think the tools and techniques you’ve been using to build desktop-web and Ajax applications and instead focus on modern JS/CSS/DOM to deliver rich graphics, smooth and responsive experiences across devices, and “upgradeable” (not degradable) experiences that help you reach multiple audiences at once.

You’ll learn how, when, and where to use:

  • CSS transforms, transitions, and animations
  • Super-modern JavaScript (ES5 and modern DOM) without the toolkits
  • @media queries and new layout types to simplify design
  • and SVG for graphics, and
  • WebSockets
  • HTML5 input elements that kill code
  • performance enhancing techniques throughout

Come prepared with a laptop, a web server, and a text editor and come build an HTML5 app that can serve as a template for your future development.
