I’m extremely privileged to be presenting at this years Progressive .Net Tutorials conference by Skillsmatter. I’ll be delivering a 4 hour tutorial on HTML5 and the key considerations for .Net developers.

Here’s the session outline:

So HTML5… What is all the fuss about? It seems all the major vendors are actually in agreement on something.

In this tutorial we’ll be powering through the murky waters of HTML5 taking a brief look at where all the hullabaloo has come from, why it matters and how it relates to the world of .Net. We’ll be looking at some of the key considerations of a HTML5 project including old Browsers (boo!), new browsers (yay!), the boring stuff (what do you mean semantics aren’t sexy?), the cool stuff (new toys like websockets, location services, local storage etc) and of course, mobile.

Code examples, dev tools, frameworks, libraries and best practices will all be thrown into the mix so be ready for a content rich session with lots of hacking, experimenting and a large side of samples and resources.

Four hours is both an absolute age to try and keep a room full of people engaged for and at the same time no where near long enough to cover everything I have to say on HTML5. This is good news for anyone who decides to attend as I’ll need to edit out all my dull, boring waffle (hard to believe I know, but yes I can go on a bit) and focus on the most important areas. I’ll also be preparing a host of code snippets and samples to work through all of which will be available after the event.
