I gave one of the ten talks based on HTML5 at JavaOne this year. It mainly focused on bridging the gap between HTML5 and JavaEE along with best practices and tips for mobile devices.

It seems like most developers already know how to provide (some form of) an accessible and scalable architecture on the server side, but the big question was "How can I get a native look and feel web app on mobile devices?"

So with my 8:30 am slot on Wednesday, I was expecting to hear crickets, but instead I was happy to see the majority of chairs filled.

The talk should be up soon on Parleys here. As of this writing, only a few are available and you can view my slides here.


Luckily, I was able to work with the folks at HTML5Rocks.com to get my article HTML5 Techniques for Optimizing Mobile Performance published just a few days before the talk. So all questions at the end were easily answered by the article.



What next? Be looking for much more HTML5 goodness coming your way from the folks here at JBoss. We have quite a few things which will hopefully be announced soon. In the meantime, we have a few webinars which you might want to check out over the coming weeks/months:
