The popular standards>next series of talks is coming to Manchester!

In what we’re hoping will be the first of many semi-regular (every two to three months) sessions “up north”, the dynamic duo of Bruce Lawson and Patrick H. Lauke from Opera‘sDeveloper Relations team will take you 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 Bruce 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. As always, it’s free for all to attend but places are limited.
