As developers, you keep hearing a lot about HTML5, but many don’t know what it actually means or is truly capable of. If you want to learn about it, your choices are limited; you can either pick up a book or attend an expensive conference that often only scratches the surface.
The HTML5 WebCamp is an opportunity to connect with designers and developers and show you what’s possible, and how you can start using it today. SitePoint is your online exclusive location to watch the event live!
HTML5 WebCamp is a completely free event, and will start with demos and presentations, and will end with hands on lab sessions, that will allow you to walk through materials and get your questions answered!
Saturday, November 12, 2011 in Mountain View, California.
Live Streaming to begin 9:00am US Pacific Standard Time.
Saturday the 12th November was the day, the live feed is now over.
