HTML5 APIs To Use Today On Google Developers Live Israel

Last week, I meet with few startups to talk about their web apps. After few basic questions like: how do I save data on the client without cookies? or something like: “Can I get a video input from the browser?”Ā I thought it might be a good idea to touch on some of the APIs that are out there today in most browsers and developers can use. The best part is that in most cases, you can start using these APIs with very little code.Ā In thisĀ demo pageĀ  you can hack around some basic HTML5 features and see the code snippets that will let you do some cool things like: save information locally (local storage for theĀ rescueĀ here), Geo location, device orientration, Getting Video/Audio (with WebRTC), Visibility API etc’.

DevCon TLV – HTML5 APIs (Talk & Slides)

DevCon TLV Logo

Today I had the pleasure to talk (again) atĀ DevCon Tel Aviv. In this talk, I’ve covered some of the aspects that developer should think about in the design phase, coding phase and after the ‘production time’. It was a goodĀ opportunityĀ  to put a simple demo page that contain some basic HTML5 features you might want to use. Why? because in cases like the ‘Summary/Detail’ element you get the option to have expendable/collapsableĀ areas without any JavaScript. It’s great to have the ability to communicate to the browser our needs without doing some ‘hacks’ in JS. Other great options like: visibility API, Geo and device orientration are all working on most modern browsers. You can check out the slides and the links to the resources in them. Continue reading

DevConTLV Summary

DevConTLVLast week, I had the pleasure to present at DevConTLV for the 3rd time. It a great conferance that bring to Tel Aviv someĀ rock-starsĀ from companies like: Github, CouchDB, Amazon and many others. The location (Ozen Bar) is a cool place where you can hear live music during the nights and drink good coffee during the mornings. So it is a natural location to such an event. Ahh… and yep, the opening of the day was done with a live rock band! (just like JSConf). Continue reading
