Beyond smartphones and tablets, touch screens are finding their way into laptops and even desktop computers. With hardware support for touch becoming increasingly ubiquitous, it's time to explore what new possibilities are available to developers.
This workshop will cover the basics of handling touch (as well as stylus/pen input) in JavaScript — from making sure simple single-tap interactions are as responsive as possible, all the way to examples of full multitouch, gesture-enabled elements, with a particular focus on common pitfalls and browser inconsistencies.

Really cool demos and many new things has been learned

Learned a lot, very updated and interesting talk. Not a real workshop and maybe it could be lasted 30 minutes more to see more practical examples.

A very comprehensive landscape on how to treat keyboard, mouse, touch and stylus on virtually every device. Fine!
