Start Time: 19:00

Due to popular demand, the last standards>next session on the 29 September – which featured the dynamic duo of Bruce Lawson and Patrick H. Lauke from Opera‘s Developer Relations team – will be repeated.

This time, Patrick will be joined by the mighty Chris Mills on a whirlwind tour of HTML5. No hype, no lengthy theoretical discussions – 2 hours of live coding demonstrations (look out for the hilarious typos) that will take you from the basics of some of the new structural elements and the bizarre new world of the outline algorithm right to the fancy new features like native audio/video and canvas.

Bring your laptop and code along, or just sit back and let Chris and Patrick show you how you can start to leverage some of the new features and functionalities of HTML5. And make sure to stick around for a few well-deserved drinks at Common across the road.

This event is run in association with Fly the Coop and Speak the Web, and kindly hosted byMadLab. As always, it’s free for all to attend, but places are limited.
