Industry HTML5 Workshop with John Allsopp

Taking place on the 23rd April 2013 you can join John Allsopp for a full day workshop.

HTML5 is much more than a bunch of new semantic markup. In this full day workshop, John Allsopp takes you beyond the header and footer, to focus on some of the powerful, but surprisingly easy to use, features of the next generation of HTML (and related W3C technologies): UI features, offline capabilities, rich media, geolocation, accelerometers, and many more hidden gems.

John will also focus on important universal access issues like backwards compatibility, accessibility, device and browser support, to ensure your sites and apps work across the widest range of devices for as many people as possible.

Industry Windows 8 Workshop with Andy Spooner

Taking place on the 23rd April 2013, you can join Andy Spooner for a full day workshop.

If you’re a web developer, Windows 8 presents a new opportunity. You can use your HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills to create native applications for the latest version of the world’s biggest operating system.

This day long workshop run by Microsoft Evangelist Andrew Spooner will introduce you to the new Windows 8 operating system and the design and UX patterns that exist in Windows Store apps. The day is split into 2 parts. The morning will give you an overview of the Modern UI, explaining the new Windows experience and explaining the design principles that manifest themselves in this new style of application, brought to life using live examples. You will also get a brief introduction to the development environment so you can understand how to download and run sample applications. The afternoon will build upon the essential idea for an app and guide you through the process of turning it into a Windows Store application that will truly shine in the Windows Store.
