    The image of the three-legged stool to describe HTML5. Testing APIs

    •What did you learn from that?
    The importance of testing various environments.

    •What will you do with that knowledge?
    Another good reminder of CanIuse site.

    first off, I found a site that is my new goto for checking features of HTML5:
    http://diveintohtml5.info/everything.html

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? What did you learn from that? What will you do with that knowledge?
    It was fun to be interacting with a lot more code. I can understand this slows things a bit if it’s overdone, but it seems to help people grasp things better when they can see the results. I learned quite a bit more about the struggles with browser compatibility and that it’s still quite a pain to try to integrate features of HTML5 that have spotty implementation across browsers.

    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?
    I’m interested now in looking more into the inserting stuff into the DOM. I’m thinking my 5.2 project whereby my microdata wasn’t being read could be a result of the way I embedded it.
    What could we have done better?
    Pacing is fine for me as always.

    I’ve created a JSBin of the above ‘everything’ test code:

    I’ve also put it in a .js file on the azure server dan_miner_test.js

    Yuki, et al
    Here’s an example of setting up an event handler that can use information about the element to which you are assigning the event handler.

    While looking for question material for Peerwise, found a nice site with HTML5 demos, with source code: http://html5demos.com/

  6. Yuki says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    understanding that html5 cant really be functional without css3 and javascript.
    What did you learn from that? that i need to learn all three tools.

    What will you do with that knowledge? implement as much of the html5 concepts with all three of these three tools in my lab work.

  7. Albert says:

    What do you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? I really liked the examples and explanations of how html5, css3 and javascript are related and essential to one another.

    What did you learn from that? I never used JSBin prior to this class, and I appreciate seeing the markup, style, behaviors, console and output all within 1 window from 1 web application.

    What will you do with that knowledge. I’ll definitely use JSBin more from now on.
