I’m at my first BarCamp this weekend (BarCamp London 8
). I decided to do my "HTML5 basics" presentation again. I think it went quite well – there are a few bits that I could have explained better I think and a projector issue meant that my slides were yellow where they should have been white, but otherwise good. It was a room for 30 and it was standing room only (which is down to interest in HTML5 rather than me of course).
Here are the resources that I pointed to in the presentation. These are some of the best HTML5 resources that I've found so far. Hope you find them as helpful as I have.
We’re half way through Sunday and I can say that BarCamp has been great. The BCL team are quite practiced at conferences now and everything is running smoothly. It’s pretty remarkable for a free conference. Many thanks to everyone involved.
I did a brief presentation entitled "HTML5 basics" at the London .NET User Group Open Mike night on Wednesday. I had a great time!
Open Mike night is intended to introduce new speakers to the community. I've been going to community stuff in London for a couple of years and I thought this was a good opportunity to step up and give something back.
There were four other presentations, which were all excellent:
I gained something watching all of them. I hope others got something from my talk.
Thanks to Toby
for organising the night and to Michelle
and EMC Consulting for organising the venue and drinks.
So, I wanted to post the resources that I pointed to in the presentation. These are some of the best HTML5 resources that I've found so far:
Hope you find them as helpful as I have.
EDIT: Toby's blogged about the event and upcoming events
and one of the attendees has written a little summary
. I'd agree that Sara and Rachel stole the show with their sketch to explain pair programming. I might have to use interpretive dance to describe HTML5 next time!
