On Wednesday I presented on HTML5 in Bristol as part of the Future of Web Design Tour.
The hour-long workshop “How to build a HTML5 Web site” involved me coding in real time (with hilarious typo consequences like “Dictype” instead of “doctype”; frankly, I’d be better typing with my dic than my hands).
Consequently there are no slides to publish, but I have an article called Designing a blog with HTML that covers the same ground. (Two articles on this blog cover it in much more detail: Redesigning with HTML 5 and WAI-ARIA and Marking up a blog with HTML 5 (part 2).)
Some other useful resources:
- HTML5 validator
- HTML5 outliner
- the author’s version of the HTML5 specification (much shorter than the main version, which has lots of information for browser makers, but which is generated from the same source and therefore up-to-date)
- HTML5 Doctor (I’m a co-curator of this site)
You can also download Opera 10 which I was using to demo.
There will be a video available, and the Carson types have promised that they’ll publish a transcript simultaneously. It’s nice to see them taking accessibility seriously, and I was pleased to see that they had someone signing the sessions for hearing-impaired.
You can grab the slides and notes for my second session, The Future of HTML5, which I tweaked slightly to deliver on Monday in Glasgow.)
