DocType HTML5 is a part conference, part workshop, and part genesis of a developer community around HTML5. For the first time ever, HTML5 provides a single platform for desktop and mobile applications across devices. HTML5 is an open, vendor-neutral standard supported by the W3C web standards body.
HTML5, the new web standard that has been adopted by Apple, Google and many others, lets web developers create advanced graphics, typography, animations and transitions without relying on third party browser plug-ins (like Flash). HTML5 is completely open and controlled by a standards committee, of which Apple is a member.
— Steve Jobs
The term HTML5 has come to represent not just the new version of hypertext markup language, but a suite of related technologies and proposed standards. These include:
- CSS3, Geo-location, Web Sockets, Canvas, Client Storage, Audio and Video.
The buzz and rapid evolution around HTML5 makes it hard to understand the technical, business and strategic implications of the latest version of the language that powers the world wide web. DocType HTML5 is aimed at senior web developers, mobile app developers, architects, and CTOs, and will provide a clear pathway to understanding everything about HTML5.
With the rapid growth of Internet and Mobile, having a first-mover advantage is critical. Your company recognises the need to train its developers and align product strategy with upcoming technologies. This is why you must attend.
