HTML5 Battles still to be won – a talk at Open Web Camp III

Last Saturday was the Open Web Camp at Stanford University in Palo Alto. Around 300 developers, designers and project managers signed up to hear up-to-date information about web technologies, accessibility and design. The event was free and, although it started very early for Silicon Valley standards, very well attended.

Mozilla’s contribution (other than being a sponsor) was a keynote on the merits of HTML5 for web development and a call to arms or developers to ask for the implementation of a few missing parts.

The slides are available on Slideshare and here:

The audio of the talk is available at

There is much more great content that was released at the conference – simply look for the owc3 hashtag on Twitter or the same tag on the web.

    Great talk! I was thinking of something. Instead of guessing when you change slide. Can’t you add some times for when the slides change that sync with the audio? Would also be great if the links in the images would be clickable!
