Track: Mobile
Skill Level: Intermediate
Room: Room 105
Time Slot: Mon 2/18, 10:30 AM

This session will give you the knowledge to write HTML5 applications in your production code today. We’ll start out with a review of the current browser landscape (iOS, Android, Microsoft, Firefox, Chrome, Dolphin and Opera) and how to support both mobile device and desktop browsers in a production environment. We’ll review core HTML5 and W3C APIs such as Web Storage, Web Sockets, Web Workers, Geolocation, and Device Orientation and examine how these APIs contrast between desktop and mobile environments.
From there, we’ll begin coding an offline capable, HTML5 based demo application using all the latest APIs.
