HTML5 has been hyped a lot the last 12 months. Each passing day, the browsers support more and more of the HTML 5 featuree set, both in terms of the new HTML form elements and the new JacaScript API's. This mark a new start for creating great applications based on Open Wen Standards.

This Code Camp will be a project-oriented, hard core, hands-on deep-dive into HTML 5 where we'll visit all of the important specifications and implement a real solution in project teams.


Recruit and armour the HTML5 warriors and send them to war to move Norwegian IT to the front-line of great front-end solutions.
