What the heck is this HTML5 business after all? As a team of web engineers I’m pretty embarrassed to say we could not truthfully answer this question. This week, I set out to put the question to rest once and for all, and in turn help educate the rest of the team.
A special thanks goes out to Mark Pilgrim who wrote Dive into HTML5 which is available in at Amazon*.
For those without the patience to view the slides, HTML5 is an ever evolving standard. It constitutes of many features which are supported in part or whole by new devices and web browsers. Those features make life easier for the developer while making the web more engaging.
