The modern web browser is a powerful and flexible platform that is far more capable that you might think. Many advanced features can get lost in the gap between front-end and back-end development skill sets. Find out about the HTML5 APIs you’ve never heard of, from audio to video to physical sensors, and interaction methods for mobile users. Learn where they are supported and how you can start work with these APIs in your next project!

Superb talk, lots of interesting possibilities with HTML5 APIs. Did a good job of making what could be a dry topic very entertaining. Great battleships WebMIDI demo!

Ironically the talk i feel was possibly the least useful if only for the fact that we touched on so little of the APIs that I will now have to commit to a large chunk of time investigating them myself. But so well and engagingly presented.

So much fun to be had in this talk, from the jokes, slides and physical demos. Really impressed how the speaker picked a good subset of the APIs and gave enough time to cover each rather than attempt to cover too much ground in not enough depth.

Personally I'd suggest moving the MIDI demo to be the last API covered as the physical nature of the demo lends it to be the natural crescendo of talk.

Loved this. I feel inspired to go away and play with all the cool apis I've never heard of now.

Lots of fun, lots of new things to learn, really good explanation of each one. Sometimes difficult to see the practical application, but you never know when they might come in handy.

Highly entertaining and informative, but I feel you really need to invest in a keytar to deliver the full potential of this talk.
