The landscape of what’s possible in web page layout is changing. Jen has a theory that this change will be a big one — perhaps the biggest change to graphic design on the web in over 15 years. Rachel, Jeffrey, and Eric join her to debate if that’s true or not, and to surmise what the future might bring. This special episode was recorded live at An Event Apart Nashville.

HTML5 brought more semantic elements to HTML. How’s that going? Why should developers use semantic HTML? Accessibility, ARIA roles, microformats, microdata, RDFa, web components, and more.
DRM has been long touted as the solution to piracy. Recently, a few browser makers and big media companies have pushed DRM technology into the web browser — while open web advocates have fought to prevent DRM on the web.
This week we were joined by Jeremy Keith, long time super genius. Jeremy works at Clearleft in what he dubs the Research & Development arm. He built Huffduffer, wrote HTML5 for Web Designers (amongst other books), and is an all around swell chap from Brighton, UK. We talk about (roughly in order):
- Crowd Favorite is hiring. Clearleft is too.
- Jen Simmons & Eric Meyer are creating The Web Behind.
Q & A
- Why is there no element? And the Scooby-Doo algorithm.
- HTML5 has a bunch of stuff in it to benefit everybody… except developers?
- Is mobile first design hindering creativity?
- Will HTML5 mobile apps ever be as efficient as Native apps? Is that the right question?
Front-end developer extraordinaire Paul Irish joins Jen Simmons to discuss work process, tools and best-practices.
While at NDC, Carl and Richard talk to Remy Sharp about HTML 5. Remy discusses the state of things, how the diversity of browsers is as much a strength as a problem. He digs into the idea that you need to build your web app for the audience you have - perhaps it needs more support for older browsers, or focus on the latest features for the newest browsers. Check out the great collection of links to different services and sites that Remy mentions in the discussion!
Are we being seduced by the animation and rich UI capabilities of modern browsers at the expense of the underlying platform of the Web?
We’ll explore this by looking at what the Web was, is now, and might become. We’ll look at examples of exciting user interfaces and sophisticated interactions. We’ll also examine some emerging techniques for providing rich user interactions without hurting the web or killing kittens.

HTML5. It’s more than paving the cowpaths. It’s more than markup. There’s a lot of stuff in the spec about databases and communication protocols and blahdiblah backend juju. Some of that stuff is pretty radical. And it will change how you design websites. Why? Because for the last twenty years, web designers have been creating inside of a certain set of constraints. We’ve been limited in what’s possible by the technology that runs the web. We became so used to those limits, we stopped thinking about them. They became invisible. They Just Are. Of course the web works this certain way. Of course a user clicks and waits, the page loads, like this… but guess what? That’s not what the web will look like in the future. The constrains have changed. Come hear a non-nerd explanation of the new possibilities created by HTML5’s APIs. Don’t just wait around to see how other people implement these technologies. Learn about HTML APIs yourself, so you can design for and create the web of the future.
This week our regular interview host Louis Simoneau (@rssaddict) interviews Bruce Lawson who is a member of the Web Standards Project’s Accessibility Task Force, works at the Opera team and contributes to HTML5 Doctor.
Frostig war es draußen, und Vollmond womöglich auch, als sich Schepp mit Marc Hinse, aka @MadeMyDay, und Hans Reinl, aka @drublic und Frontendentwickler aus Freiburg, ans virtuelle Kaminfeuer setzte und mit ihnen zusammen die Woche revuepassieren ließ.
