So far, HTML5 has been a “draft specification document” by the
W3C and as I am fairly sure all developers are happy that we will finally get to have an official release date announced which
is Aug 2014. This will mean that the W3C will then officially recommend HTML5.
What do I as a Cloud Computing Pro need to know about
this and why?
Most browsers already support most HTML5 specifications and with the use of slow degradation we can get around the
browsers that do not support HTML5 yet. Furthermore a more important date is that of Aug 14th
2010, which is the cut of date announced by the W3C by when no more additions to the new specification will be accepted.
What does HTML5
think the best way to start telling this is by explaining what HTML5 is not. It is not CSS3,
HTML5 and this can only be best described as a marketing play.
Semantics, which is the Semantic Web
According to the the W3C’s
HTML5 website – Giving meaning to structure, semantics are front and center with HTML5. A richer set of tags, along
with RDFa, microdata, and microformats,
are enabling a more useful, data driven web for both programs and your users.
According to Wikipedia – The key element is
that the application in context will try to determine the meaning of the text or other data and then create connections for
The evolution of Semantic Web will
specifically make possible scenarios that were not otherwise, such as allowing customers to share and utilize computerized
applications simultaneously in order to cross reference the time frame of activities with documentation and/or data.
According to the original vision, the availability of
machine-readable metadata would enable automated agents and other software to access the Web
more intelligently. The agents would be able to perform tasks automatically and locate related information on behalf of the

HTML5 App Cache, as well as the Local Storage, Indexed DB, and the File API specifications.
Beginning with the Geolocation API, Web Applications
can present rich, device-aware features and experiences. Incredible device access innovations are being developed and implemented,
from audio/video input access to microphones and cameras, to local data such as contacts & events, and even video tilt
More efficient connectivity means
more real-time chats, faster games, and better communication. Web Sockets and Server-Sent Events are pushing data between
client and server more efficiently than ever before.
Audio and video are first class citizens in the HTML5
web, living in harmony with your apps and sites. Lights, camera, action!

Performance and Integration
Make your Web Apps and dynamic web content faster with
a variety of techniques and technologies such as Web Workers and XMLHttpRequest 2. No user should
ever wait on your watch.
CSS3 delivers a wide range of stylization and effects, enhancing the web app without
sacrificing your semantic structure or performance. Additionally Web Open Font Format (WOFF)
provides typographic flexibility and control far beyond anything the web has offered before....Cloud Pros AWAKE...and start
