It's been over 10 years since the last HTML spec was published. Since then, the web has become a major part of everyday life. In 2004, the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group was formed by companies including Apple, the Mozilla Foundation, Opera Software and others to further improve web technologies. I'll talk about some of these technologies and how they can be used today to improve any web application. Simpler markup, native fonts, better search engine support, native animation, native video and audio support are just a few of the new technologies I'll talk about and demonstrate. If you do web development or have a website, you should see what the future of the web looks like.
About Geoffrey Gallaway:
Geoffrey Gallaway is a software developer and web designer in St. Louis, MO. He has been working with web technologies since the days of NCSA Mosaic when, at the age of 16, he created his first angsty, overly dramatic website. Now, slightly more mature, he is always playing with new technologies and looking for ways they can improve user experiences and reduce development time and headaches. He enjoys rock and roll music, good bourbon and lolcats.
