Slides from My Summer HTML5 Sessions (so far)

html5-megaphoneIt's been an unusually busy summer for me and conferences. Where I normally take a break from conference travel, I found myself spanning the United States in June, with quick stops at the SoCal Code Camp in San Diego, the huge ASP.NET Users Group in Dallas, and the inaugural MADExpo in Virginia. Fortunately, at each stop the focus of my sessions was the same: HTML5.

I've been "preaching" and teaching HTML5 concepts for nearly 2 years now, so it's fun to see the industry catching-up. It's always a good feeling to be ahead of a curve instead of behind it! But if you're just jumping in to HTML5, don't dismay. It's still very early in the HTML5 technology curve, and getting started now will set you up to be an expert as the technology matures.

For those of you that attended my sessions at any of the conferences this summer, thanks for choosing to attend! Hopefully you got some value out of our brief conversations and are now energized to learn HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. As promised (albeit a bit belated), slides from those sessions are available below. Enjoy the resources and stay tuned for more more HTML5 content in the very near future!

(Oh! And don't forget about and @htmlUI. I'll be updating this resource significantly very soon, so bookmark for lots of great HTML5 resources.)
