Sea-change: a striking change, as in appearance, often for the better. (source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sea+change)
Arguably, HTML5 and CSS3 has been with us for little more than 3 years now. Still the global marketplace is continuing to invest tens of billions of dollars in building web solutions using older standards (HTML 4.1 and CSS2.1), without any considerations for adaptability to newer standards on the horizon - HTML5 and CSS3.
As you can see at this wonderful online resource (http://html5readiness.com/) that cross-browser compatibility is still a huge challenge as far as consistent support for newer HTML5/CSS3 standards. Most of the web design professionals I know have toyed around with one or more of these features but there are VERY FEW who claim to have expertise on majority of these standards - primarily because there are very few projects that will allow developers to design and build solutions with sole focus on tomorrow's needs.
In this 40 minute presentation plus 10 minute Q&A session, we will briefly talk about some of the HTML5 features, highlight some of the DOs and DON'Ts for any new projects that you might be starting, and then share references to online resources for you to dig deeper and continue exploring it further.
