With the advent of modern desktop and mobile browsers supporting some or all of HTML5 the time to learn about this spec is now. Learn the basics of the additional functionality available to you with HTML5 from Canvas and Video to Geolocation and the Storage API’s. Walk through some examples and gain a deeper understanding of how you can take advantage of what HTML5 has to offer and begin the migration from black box plugins to the open standard in HTML5.

Good information about which browsers support which features.

Overall, though, it was too general, info that I could get from the web easily. The talk should have specific examples showing the results of using HTML5 tags, more interactive. Andrew doesn't come across as knowing HTML5 well, although he may.

His speaking style is jerky, I think he should work on that.

I'm the one who was logged in as Sebastian Bergmann. Now, I seem to be logged in as another random name, and that doesn't seem to be changing. Sorry Sebastian!!!

Was I being too critical? If attendees are spending $800 to attend a conference, and speakers are flown in from around the world, talking about their international experience, I just expect a higher quality. Either a unique perspective or an engaging style that helps me to understand and internalize the material better.

Too general information easily accessible online. Perhaps good resources to look for. Overall decent but not great.

I echo the above statements....what I got out of it is "a lot of people are disagreeing about codecs, and we're still waiting for browsers to catch up." Would have been more interested in further discussion on new semantic tags, and what some people are doing with HTML5 now, as well as what we have to look forward to.

I have to agree with the above statements. I felt like the information provided was very generic and added no great insight to using HTML5. More time was spent on the history and less on useful information.

I personally like the speakers style and think he is a good speaker, but I felt the content wasn't in depth enough.

Was great, it was too general, but as an intro/first session and not knowing much about HTML5, was good enough.

Andrew is a good speaker, he wasn't boring at all.
