HTML5 101 – a introductory talk at Sabre in Krakow, Poland

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 at 9:56 pm

In my ongoing crusade to talk about awesome new web technologies outside my comfort zone I just spent a few hours at Sabre in Krakow, Poland talking to a room jam-packed with about 100 internal and mostly Java developers.

They asked me to give an overview of HTML5 as there are a lot of requests for it and there is a lot of confusion as to what it is and can do. So I put together some information and talked for an hour about what HTML5 is, what it isn’t, what technologies are “friends of HTML5” and where the web might go in the future.

The slides are available online or embedded below (cursor keys to navigate, press N to show and hide notes and cursor down to proceed on slides with bullet points):

The audio recording of the talk is available on

All in all this was a lot of fun, and I will repeat the talk in German in an online conference with SAP tomorrow.
