The web, more and more, is tightly integrated into our daily lifestyles. Our use of the web with social networking and rich media has increased radically over the past few years. Consumerization of sophisticated mobile devices has been one of the major drivers of that rapid growth. But the challenge for developers is the fragmentation of the mobile development ecosystem. Because of this fragmentation, you have to create mobile apps multiple times, with different programming languages and tools. And these mobile applications are different from the applications that target the desktops and browsers.

In this workshop, you will learn how to build modern web applications with HTML5 that users can access across their various platforms and devices. Write one and run everywhere is not a new goal, but it has been a challenging one to achieve. HTML5 is in a great position to be the technology that achieves this goal with standards adoption across vendors, platforms and devices.

When you consider the user experience that is expected of HTML5 applications, it becomes apparent that there are services beyond HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript that are needed. This is where the Cloud and Windows Azure comes into the picture.

During this workshop, Eric will show you how to get started building modern web applications with HTML5. Eric will also walk through Windows Azure and how to use the Windows Azure Platform to provide the experience that users expect of modern web apps.

You will learn:

  • Overview of HTML5 and the supporting technologies
  • How to create modern web applications with HTML5
  • When and how to utilize the Cloud in your HTML5 apps
