HTML5 is emerging as a compelling programming platform by providing rich OS-like features, high developer productivity and cross-platform reach. We are at an inflection point today, where the performance and feature advances in HTML5 technologies, combined with increasing device and OS fragmentation, are fueling the adoption of the web as a platform of choice across the compute continuum.
This talk will provide a high-level technical primer of client-side web technologies that serve as the foundation for HTML5.
Heidi currently leads an HTML5 runtime performance pathfinding project. She received her PhD in Computer Science from MIT for her research on parallel programming models.
