Last month, my teammates Rachel Appel, G. Andrew Duthie, and Chris Bowen hosted HTML5 Web Camp events in New York and Boston. Both events “sold out” almost immediately. (So quickly that I didn’t even get a chance to post the NYC one here before registration was closed!) Due to the popularity of those events, the team is hosting six more HTML5 Web Camps up and down the east coast.
