  2. Talking web standards with Microsoft part 1 – Building for real standards

    I just returned from a recording session with Microsoft for their Channel 9 feature. Rey Bango (ex-Mozilla and also ex-Ajaxian) had invited us to chat about a few web development topics on video. The recordings are being edited now but you can get the presentations and the code examples right now.

    Rey and Chris

    The first session we recorded was about “Building for real standards”. In this we talk about what a standard means, how this applies to HTML5 and discuss problems and pitfalls to avoid. The slides are available on Slideshare and there is also a version with presenter notes.

    As part of the Mozilla Evangelism Reps Program we also make the slides with presenter notes as PDF, Keynote and PPT available and additionally release the code examples with tips on how to present them.

    You can get all of this on GitHub in case you want to give this presentation yourself.

    In the second (and last) part of the series we talked in detail about Progressive Enhancement, Graceful Degradation and Responsive design. The slides and code examples will be up here tomorrow.

  5. Announcing the April Dev Derby winners!

    Last month, more than twenty amazing HTML5 audio demos were shared in the April Dev Derby competition. After looking through the entries, our three new expert judges—Peter Lubbers, Rob Hawkes, and (filling in for Guillermo this month) Chris Heilmann—have decided on three winners and two runners-up.

    You don’t have to be a contestant to get excited. Because these demos are completely open-source, they provide wonderful lessons in all of the exciting things you can do with HTML5 audio today.

    Runners-up

    Like last month, our judges had a very hard time narrowing the entries down to just these five finalists. So let’s not forget about all of the other great entries. Many of these were only a few votes away from making the final cut, and all of them deserve recognition for pushing audio forward in ways we never imagined.

    Want to get a head start on a future Derby? We are also accepting demos that highlight the all that can be done today without JavaScript (July Derby) and demos related to the Camera API (August Derby).

  7. Presentation: Web vs. Native at Reasons to be Appy

    Yesterday around 300 attendees came to the amazing L.S.O. at St Luke’s in London, England for Reasons to be Appy conference. In nine presentations several speakers covered all kind of concepts around app development, from typography to mobile debugging.

    reasons to be appy audience

    Mozilla’s presentation was Christian Heilmann talking about the controversy around the battle of native vs. web app development and explaining that we should not thrive to simulate but to invent instead. Not everything about native apps is as rosy as the headlines in the tech news outlets make us believe. There is quite a lack of basic HTML5 support in mobile browsers and for now hybrid apps and using libraries and polyfills seems to be the safest bet. The talk also covered a request to try out alternative mobile browsers like Firefox for Android, showed the boot to gecko project to free mobile hardware and make the mobile web affordable and asks developers to stop targeting specific browsers and block out others.

    The slides are available and here is a screencast of them in sync with the talk.
