Meta Refresh 2012

Web design could use some new ideas. We have the tech now.

HTML5 and CSS3 have very quickly moved from being tentative new standards to the base standards for every major desktop and mobile browser. HTML5 is now just HTML, a modular, living standard that no longer needs a version number.

Now that we are no longer fighting over platforms, it’s time to put the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface: how do we raise the bar for stellar user interface on the web?

Meta Refresh is a follow-up to DocType HTML5 from 2010-11 and is a conference on web UI engineering.

Client side storage on the modern web

Submitted Mar 27, 2012

Learn what options we as web developers have when it comes to storing data on the client.

Outline

This session reviews the various options available to us today as web developers for storing bits of data on the client side. We’ll review technologies all the way from the venerable cookies to the swanky new Indexed DB proposal. Along the way we’ll take a look at some of the security implications of these new technologies and see some strategies for handling browser compatibility issues.

Requirements

Basic familiarity with web development.
