6:00-7:00: HTML5 in Your Pocket: Application Cache and Local Storage

Two major new features of HTML5 — application cache and local storage — allow you to bring the web experience to your users, even when the web isn’t there. Application cache allows you to write fully functional web applications that work offline as well as online. Local storage allows you to store megabytes of data locally (natch) without having to install a separate database. Combine these two features, and you can begin writing web applications for mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, and Android) that behave like native applications — right down to the icon on the desktop.

But don’t think that these features only work for mobile web development. They are available on PC-based web browsers as well — yes, even Internet Explorer.

7:15-8:45: HTML5 Video on the Web

No HTML5 feature has generated as much excitement and controversy as the new native video element. In this talk, we’ll cut through the hype and the skepticism and get to the real details. Which browsers support the video element? (All of them except one, and you know exactly which one.) Which codecs and containers should I use — MP4 and h.264? Flash? Ogg Theora? Google’s new WebM? And how is HTTP Live Streaming — an Apple specification that is now going through the IETF standardization process — dramatically changing the landscape of web video?

If you visit websites like YouTube or Netflix, you might already be using HTML5 to watch video. Come learn what’s going on under the covers.
