First off - a big thank you to everyone who attended my presentation at cfObjective today. I hope it was a useful introduction to some of the cool new stuff in HTML5. That sounds really lame, but it's honestly how I feel. The web (well the front end) is incredibly fun again. I'm hoping to do many more presentations in the future, but with a more focused topic. I'm doing a presentation soon on HTML5 Storage options and I'm planning one just on Forms. (Since, you know, forms are kind of important. Unlike other things. Looking at you Canvas.)
You can download the presentation and code from Github: https://github.com/cfjedimaster/HTML-Code-Demos
It should "just run" in your browser, but some of the demos are a bit bleeding edge.
Perhaps the fact that I am unable to run the preso suggests that I'm too stupid to understand it anyway, but I can't seem to get it fired off. I load index.html and all I see are thumbnails of your first three or so slides and no way to navigate unless I manually edit the hashtag in the address bar. Is there some trick I'm missing?
The slides were tested in Chrome - can you try that? And you use the keyword (left arrow, right arrow) to navigate).
Perfect. Arrows scroll through the slides horizontally. I was trying to mouse through it. Thank you, sir.
The HTML based slides were an experiment. I probably won't do it again in the future. It's cool, but I prefer Powerpoint/Keynote, and I like being able to export a simple PDF.
