Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to attend the first edition of Standards.next, an informal bootcamp about tomorrow's web standards, organized by my fab colleagues Bruce and Henny. A quick overview with lots of links to online resources:
- Bruce Lawson presented HTML 5: Are you mything the point?. There's a video available, showing Bruce in all his glory.
- Dean Edwards showcased his html5.js library, which implements Web Forms 2.0 in a range of browsers, allowing anybody to start using this technology right away: enjoy the video, and be sure to check it out once Dean releases the library.
- Martin Kliehm showed that Canvas can be used for more than for drawing spirographs: get all details in his HTML5 and Canvas slides, referenced links, and video snippets.
- And to finish, Steve Faulkner gave an excellent overview of the debates surrounding HTML5 and accessibility.
Also worth a peek: the event pictures of our man Patrick H. Lauke.
