Kevin Benedict's What's New in HTML5 - Week of October 7th, 2012

I conducted a workshop via webex yesterday with a mining company in Australia.  It was interesting that they had a strong preference for HTML5 apps running on a cloud based mobile platform.  Their thinking was that they want mobile solutions now, but they see no need to sink a lot of money into on-premise solutions and mobile platforms yet.  They felt that HTML5 would give them the most flexibility and easiest implementations and deployments at this time as they mature their own mobile strategies and infrastructure and wait to see who the winners will be in the mobile platform market.

Now for the news...

Intel has continued to survey developers to find out where things are going with HTML5, and 40 percent of those surveyed said that they are already using HTML5 in some way in their development, and the other 40 percent of the survey developers said they planned to use it.  Read Original Content
