Peter Lubbers, Founder of World's Largest HTML5 User Group, to Deliver Opening Address at DevCon5

peter-lubbers.jpgSome exciting TMC news to share. TMC and Crossfire Media today announced that Peter Lubbers, Senior Director at Kaazing and founder of the San Francisco HTML5 User Group, will deliver the opening address at their DevCon5 – HTML5 Mobile App and Developers Conference next week in Santa Clara, California. DevCon5 takes place April 25-26, 2012 at the Network Meeting Center in Santa Clara, California. The address is scheduled for Wednesday, April 25th at 9:00am.

Admission to Mr. Lubbers’ presentation, “The HTML5 Connectivity Revolution”, as well as all other keynote and breakout sessions, is included with any DevCon5 registration plan.

While HTML5 is mostly about evolution, some of the features in the Connectivity and Real-Time area are, in fact, pretty revolutionary. Combining the power of socket connections for protocol communication, rich graphics, and offline capabilities makes it possible for web apps to be on par, or even better than, desktop applications.

This is precisely what makes HTML5 so compelling. HTML5 is making the web more interactive and in the quicker. It also reduces the need for middleware with HTML5. Peter will explore what some of the major new feature areas are when it comes to HTML5 connectivity and real time and how those are changing how you will build modern web apps.

Peter Lubbers, is the author of ‘Pro HTML5 Programming’ and the co-founder of the San Francisco HTML5 User Group, the largest HTML5 User Group in the world. Peter is known to give one of the best HTML5 overview presentations. Peter also oversees all aspects of Documentation and Training at Kaazing, a startup company specialized in building a high performance HTML5 Web Socket platform that revolutionizes web communication and the first company to offer HTML5 training worldwide.

"This is a super-exciting area and I am thrilled to be speaking about it. While HTML5 is mostly about evolution, some of the features in the Connectivity and Real-Time area are in fact pretty revolutionary. Combining the power of socket connections for protocol communication, rich graphics, and offline capabilities makes it possible for web apps to be on par, or even better than, desktop applications," explained Lubbers.

DevCon5 was created for web developers; software architects; graphic artists; and business executives seeking a deeper understanding of the power of HTML5. The DevCon5 conference program encompasses a multi-track program covering important topics related to HTML5 adoption, including: browser compatibility, user experience design and Web 3.0.

“It’s a pleasure to have Peter Lubbers the author of Pro HTML5 Programming (Apress) to lead us off as we explore not only how the web is changing, but also how the way we use the web is exploding,” explained Carl Ford, a founder of DevCon5.

“DevCon5 is a community event, where the brightest minds building powerful applications with HTML5 gather to dive into the code and share ideas for improving user experiences all over the Web,” added Ford.

In addition to Peter Lubbers, leading HTML5 developers and best-selling authors highlight the DevCon5 conference program:
