People of HTML5 - Remy Sharp

by thebeebs 1/12/2011

imageIn the second instalment of Chris Heilmann’s People of HTML5 series he talks to Remy Sharp about JavaScript and HTML5.

In this episode Remy and Christian talk about the topics below I’ve added the time that the topic starts at the beginning of each topic.

  • 0:25 - JavaScript and it’s recent maturity as a language.
  • 3:00 – Accessibility.
  • 5:40 - IE9s adherence to W3C and browser innovation outside of the spec.
  • 7:00 – Security with full screen video.
  • 10:00 – HTML5 is not a Flash killer.
  • 11:40 - Seb Lee-Delisle (P.S he's talking at one of our MSDN conferences next week)
  • 15:00 – How complicated some NEWT technologies like WebGL are for exisiting frontend developers.
  • 16:00 – Serverless applications (IndexDB, WebSQL, Offline Storage).
  • 21:10 – HTML5 showcases should be based around real web applications.

In summary Remy suggests that we should use the full power of the browser to create real world HTML5 applications and if something doesn't work or could be improved we should provide feedback to the browser vendors by filling bugs.
