South by Southwest HTML5 talks

(Last Updated on )

Yikes. I remember when I used to blog at least once a week. I blame twitter. And the boss, for making me do some work.

Anyway, if you’re headed over to South By Southwest next week, and fancy learning about HTML5 on Sunday afternoon, please pop along for a three hour workshop with me and some lovely friends from the world of accessibility, Mozilla and Microsoft in Ballroom F (this is a rom change to one double the capacity of the origianal venue – gulp!).

The running order is

  1. HTML5: Tales from the Development Trenches

    2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

    Me ‘n’ Martin Kliehm. An overview of how HTML5 came to be, why we need it, what it can do: new structural elements, intelligent forms, scriptable images with <canvas> and a brief introduction to <video>.

  2. Wow, That’s Cool… Fun With HTML5 Video

    3:30 PM – 4:30 PM

    Chris Blizzard (Mozilla), Michael Dale

  3. HTML5 Accessibility

    5:00 PM – 5.30 PM

    John Foliot (Unrepentant hardliner and lovely bloke), Cynthia Shelley (Microsoft)

  4. Panel Q&A

    5:30 PM – 6:00 PM


Why not add them to your schedule?

I ain’t never been to South By Southwest but everyone done told me that it’s awesome to the max (I’m a-larnin’ to speak American – yee har!). I don’t know much about Texas; is it the law that you must wear a JR Ewing stetson?

If you can’t make the talks, hopefully I’ll see you at the Opera booth and get a chance to love you up like the gorgeous canoodlebot that everyone tells me you are.

See you there?

Hello Bruce,
I would like to ask You about Your visit in Poland. As far as I remember, You posted something on twitter some time ago. Can You give more details?

Unfortunately, the conference organiser hasn’t announced anything yet. I’ll tweet when it is announced, as I’m really looking forward to going.

At some point, I intend to add a “upcoming speeches” thingie to this website, too. But then I haven’t yet implemented a redesign that Patrick Lauke and I did in 2005, so don’t hold your breath…!
