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.

Go Geo with HTML5

Submitted Feb 29, 2012

With the evolution of GPS-capable systems and the web world, there is an explosion of location-based applications and the desire to geo-tag all data on the internet is immense.

This session aims at exploring the Geolocation capabilities that HTML5 provides with a few interesting use cases and examples.

Outline

Handheld devices and browsers have come a long way over the past three years. Many devices have been built with GPS hardware that can produce reliable geographical data, and in this session we discuss geolocation capabilities of HTML5. Aiming at enabling you to take advantage of geolocation technology in your next project and walk you through the following:

  • How Browser Geolocation works?
  • Handling it asynchronously
  • What’s in geolocation data?
  • Fallback to IP address Geolocation data?
  • watchPosition and clearWatch API
  • Using Map data effectively
