I just had the privilege and pleasure of speaking at the HTML5 Boot Camp Extravaganza in Winnipeg at the Delta Hotel. The event was hosted and organized by Microsoft Partner of the Year Imaginet and sponsored by Microsoft. There were prizes for all attendees as well as breakfast, lunch and snacks…not to mention great conversation!
You can get in touch with any of the presenters through the links below:
David Wesst – blog, twitter Kelly Cassidy – blog, twitter Tyler Doerksen – blog, twitter and me! James Chambers – blog (you’re already here!), twitter
We covered a ton of content and flew through all kinds of territory. Here’s some of the links, tools and technologies we covered:
- http://diveintohtml5.org – Learn where we came from in the world of HTML5 and how to use the tags in our toolkit
- http://caniuse.com – Dig into the bowels of the browsers and find out if you can natively use that spanky new HTML5 feature you learned about
- http://makeawesomeweb.com – A collection of sites that are…awesome.
- http://www.beautyoftheweb.com/#/experience/ – More samples to inspire awesomeness
- http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/ – The testdrive site for IE10
- http://html5boilerplate.com/ – Easy starting point for working with HTML5, complete customization available
- http://www.pirateslovedaisies.com/ – Tell your boss you’re doing research on the canvas tag while he sips on his scotch
- http://joshduck.com/periodic-table.html – Josh Duck’s reorganization of the periodic table of elements, all HTMLified
- http://nuget.org – The open source package manager you don’t love because you don’t know about it yet
There’s a ton out there, but if you’re looking for something in particular don’t hesitate to ask.
Thanks, Winnipeg, for participating in this event. We had 50 folks of all levels of experience in the room, which made for some great questions. I really enjoyed the format – tandem presentations with lots of dialogue – and hope that you guys did too.
See you at the SIG meetings in the ‘Peg over the next few months!
