List of HTML5 Presentation Resources

I’ve been running sessions on HTML5, Internet Explorer 9/10, CSS3 and more at recent Web Camps, Code Camps, and user group meetings.  Many resources are shown or mentioned in those sessions, so I’ve compiled a list of them for you here.

    Hi Chris,

    Is the event in Framington the same that you did in Waltham before the break for WWPC?

    If it isn't are they going to open it for more registrants?  I got closed out of that 1.  I don't know if I show up will they let me in?

    Your blog is very helpful for me and I am sorry that I didn't check it while working on the small businesses that where hit in the tornafo areas.  I have been help other partners to get their customers with machines and on line asap.

    Hi Claudette,

    Yes, the new series (…/more-microsoft-html5-web-camps-coming-soon.aspx) is an extension of the ones we ran in June.  Unfortunately, the Farmington, CT venue isn't terribly large so it filled up quickly.  I don't know if we're creating a waiting list for it.

    The good news is we'll be recording screencasts of the sessions. We'll post them (probably via Channel 9) and I'll blog about it here.
