HTML5 and Drupal Theming
HTML5 is ready to use today, and I will show you how to use it in your Drupal themes. During this session, you will learn the answer to these questions:
- What is HTML5?
- What features does it offer me?
- How do I set up my themes to use it?
- How well supported is it?
By the end, you will see that converting your themes to HTML5 can offer you real benefits, and will position you to easily take advantage of new features as they become available. With its focus on graceful degradation, there’s no reason to delay. Learn how HTML5 can help you!
This session is intended for intermediate-level theme developers. You should have a healthy interest in markup, and not be afraid to open a .tpl.php file, but you don’t need to know PHP.
We will be introducing some of the new elements, such as Article, Section, and Video, but not the new APIs like drag-and-drop or geolocation.
