A big thank-you to everyone who came along to my HTML5 and MVC2 talk at SkillsMatter on Monday – and thanks also to SkillsMatter for hosting us! Whilst I’ve done plenty of talking at unconferences and events like BarCamp, this was the first proper full-length technical talk I’ve given, so I’d really appreciate any feedback – especially since we might be doing a re-run in a couple of weeks.
During the talk, I demo’ed a tiny web app – TagAlong - that I’ve built to showcase some of the new features in HTML 5 and ASP.NET MVC preview 2. This is by no means production code – if nothing else, I’m using static List<T>’s instead of having an actual database, so your changes will disappear every time you restart the app – but it should be pretty easy to get it up and running and poke around.
A couple of other interesting links that I mentioned during the talk:
- The page structure diagrams are taken from A List Apart
- Kevin Roast created the Asteroids demo
- The Fireworks demo was created by Kenneth Kufluk
