Session Proposal — Hackfest: HTML5

Know a little about HTML5, but want to learn more?  Know a lot about HTML5, but want to share?  Know nothing about HTML5, but want to dive in head first?  I’m just starting to look at HTML5 myself, so I figured the best way to learn it is to put heaps and heaps of pressure on myself to get knowledgeable enough to participate in/moderate a HTML5 Hackfest within a few weeks.  What could possibly go wrong?

Have an interesting idea on how to highlight a collection or project via a game, interactive story, or other digital method but don’t have the means to produce a prototype?  Stop by and share your idea with us, and if you’re lucky, we’ll turn your lifelong dream into a rickety, slapdash prototype.  How can you possibly turn that down?

The ultimate goal of this session would be to build a web app that demonstrates the capabilities of HTML5 (canvas, geolocation, video etc) and can be built upon by attendees after the session for future projects.

  1. Great idea! First thing to learn is to stop calling it HTML5. HTML5 sure sounds a lot better than “the new stuff in HTML,” however, and it’s got a whole lot of traction. I’d recommend anyone interested in participating give diveintohtml5.org and html5rocks.com a glance or two.

  2. Oddly enough, I started reading into material yesterday night and diveintohtml5.org and html5rocks.com were my one-two stops. Excellent stuff on both pages.
