  • HTML5 definition without the bullsh*t
  • history of HTML5 ● started at Opera – Web Applications 1.0 ● reaction to XHTML 2.0 ● Google, Mozilla and Apple joined ● W3C HTML5 ● Microsoft involvement
  • “...extending the language to better support Web applications [...] This puts HTML in direct competition with other technologies[...] , in particular Flash and Silverlight.” Ian Hickson, Editor of HTML5 http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jan/0215.html
  • HTML5 does not replace HTML 4.01
  • HTML5 has more bling!
  • HTML5 standardises current browser and authoring behaviour (e.g. relaxed coding rules)
  • HTML5 is stricter? (defines exactly how browsers handle markup/code)
  • HTML5 brings new markup elements and JavaScript APIs
  • new elements for more accurate semantics
  • HTML5 elements for a typical blog
  • unambiguous and machine readable
  • current and old browsers “support” these (although some need a little extra help) header, footer, … { display: block; }
  • Internet Explorer needs extra training wheels document.createElement('header'); document.createElement('footer'); … http://html5doctor.com/how-to-get-html5-working-in-ie-and-firefox-2
  • webforms – more powerful form elements
  • rich form elements – without JavaScript <input type=”date”> <input type=”time”> <input type=”month”> <input type=”week”> <input type=”datetime” … > <input type=”range”> <input type=”number”> <input type=”file” multiple> <input … autofocus> <input … autocomplete>
  • type and attributes for built-in validation (of course you should still validate on the server) <input type=”tel”> <input type=”email”> <input type=”url”> <input … pattern="[a-z]{3}[0-9]{3}"> <input … required> Demonstration of webforms
  • <video>
  • <object width="425" height="344"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9sEI1AUFJKw&hl=en &fs=1&"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9sEI1AUFJKw&hl=en&f s=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed> </object>
  • <video src="video.ogv" controls autoplay poster="poster.jpg" width="320" height="240"> <a href="video.ogv">Download movie</a> </video>
  • video as native object...why is it important? ● “play nice” with rest of the page ● keyboard accessibility built-in ● API for controls Demonstration of video
  • video format debate H.264 vs Ogg Theora
  • video format debate H.264 vs Ogg Theora vs WebM
  • video formats – H.264 + OGG Theora + WebM <video controls autoplay poster="…" width="…" height="…"> <source src="movie.webm" type="video/webm" /> <source src="movie.ogv" type="video/ogg" /> <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" /> <!-- fallback content --> </video> still include fallback for old browsers http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody
  • <audio>
  • audio exactly the same <audio src=”music.mp3” controls autoplay></audio> [...] <audio controls autoplay> <source src="music.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" /> <source src="music.oga" type="audio/ogg" /> <!-- fallback content --> </audio> MP3, Ogg Vorbis, WAV Demonstration: audio
  • <canvas>
  • canvas = “scriptable images” <canvas width="…" height="…"></canvas>
  • canvas has standard API methods for drawing ctx = canvas.getContext("2d"); ctx.fillRect(x, y, width, height); ctx.beginPath(); ctx.moveTo(x, y); ctx.lineTo(x, y); ctx.bezierCurveTo(x1, y1, x2, y2, c1, c2); ctx = canvas.drawImage(…);
  • canvas accessibility concerns
  • canvas appropriate use for enhanced visuals, special effects – not pure content
  • video, audio and canvas on any device without plugins (Java / Flash / Silverlight not ubiquitous)
  • But is it safe to use, right now?
  • feature-detection progressive enhancement, graceful degradation http://diveintohtml5.org/everything.html
  • HTML5 as Flashkiller?
  • not a question of HTML5 replacing Flash...
  • Giving developers a choice!
