HTML5, by Graeme Bryan
HTML5 is going to make a major impression on our industry. What is new and how did it come about? You all know the W3C but what about the WHATWG and how did they influence the current direction of web standards. This will be a lightning presentation of everything (20 to 40 mins) and will send you on your way to finding out about this new standard. For homework reading have a look at the free online book Dive Into HTML5.
