DevConnections Slides & Wrap-up

devconnections-2011-orlandoNow back in sunny (and unusually cool) Texas, I'm happy to report that DevConnections 2011 was another great developer conference! (Especially if you managed to attend my sessions and workshop on HTML5.) Developers from around the world trekked to the city made famous by the House of Mouse to spend 5 days learning about everything from HTML5 (my favorite) to SharePoint.

For my part, I delivered one half-day workshop on HTML5 and CSS3, plus two sessions: one on practical HTML5/CSS3 techniques you can actually use today, and another on LESS for CSS. Special thanks to everyone that attended (especially those of you that paid for the workshop)! My hope is that you left Orlando with a better understanding of "HTML5" and are now the experts in your offices.

For everyone else, I've made the slide decks from all three sessions available via SlideShare below. If you're really diving in to the content, you'll definitely want to download the slides as I've embedded lots of extra info and links to useful resources in the slide notes.

Finally #1: I created a new Twitter feed during DevConnections EXCLUSIVELY for sharing HTML5/CSS3/modern standards web dev resources. Follow @htmlUI or visit htmlui.com, which will soon re-broadcast and enrich the Twitter content for those of you morally opposed to social media.

Finally #2: Miss DevConnections and still want to talk HTML5? Come find me at MIX11 in Vegas next week (Telerik will have a booth), or visit my HTML5 session at TechEd Atlanta this May.
