A few weeks ago there was a “Fronteers” (the Dutch guild of front-end developers) meeting at our office in Utrecht. I was asked to give a talk about something interesting related to front-end web development. Quite a lot has been said and written about standards, accessibility, etc. so I had to come up with something more exotic.
I ended up giving a talk about the new <canvas> element from the HTML 5 specification. It’s still in its infancy but you can do some nice things with it. I won’t bore you with the details, but you can find more info about this tag at the bottom of this post.
