Monday and Tuesday we had some great lessons with our external teacher Jeremy Keith from clear left. He stripped the lessons down to the changes in elements and semantics of the web and specifically HTML5.
We did some exercises on document outlines and how <section> and <hgroup> influence them. Also the theories behind HTML5 as a living standard (as proposed by the whatWG and HTML5 as a standard as formerly shaped by the w3c were discussed. We had a complete workshop how to use HTML5 with its new semantics right now and how to provide complete backward compability.
I’ll get into that in another post, because my time-shedule is a little tight right now.
Thank you very much Jeremy for clarifying and also taking a look at our portfolios for improvement!
