My article on HTML5 for Mobile Devices at Dev Pro Connections Magazine has now been published.
HTML5 is the umbrella term for the next major evolution of markup,
an ever-more important mobile development technology -- especially in
light of Adobe's recent announcement that it's ceasing development on
Player for mobile browsers and increasing its investments in HTML5. To
bring you up to speed on this crucial aspect of development, DevProConnections has covered HTML5 extensively in recent months, including my article "HTML5 for the ASP.NET Developer."
article, I intend to provide a similarly comprehensive overview of
HTML5 with an emphasis on features oriented toward mobile development.
into some specific examples of HTML5 features and focus specifically
on what is available with mobile devices. I will focus on what
developers can do
today as opposed to what is part of the specific set of standards.
I'll also mention where a product may have a slightly different outcome
I would also like to thank the people that
helped me with the article. There were many people that read through
the article and provided suggestions. Some of them were Dave Ward
and Spike Xavier
I'm sure that there are other folks that helped that I forgot to
mention, hopefully, they are not too upset over that. Thanks to Dev Pro
Connections for the opportunity to write the article. I hope that you
find the article helpful as you get into mobile development.
