Zen and the HTML5 Boilerplate
Billed as "A rock solid default for HTML5 awesome." the HTML 5 Boilerplate was developed by Paul Irish, a Google developer, to pull together best practices for developing web pages with an HTML 5 doctype. Let's take a look at how to use the features of this template and tailor it to your needs. While this talk will be relevant to developers interested in writing web-based (including mobile) software using any of the MV DBMS's, I will also show the toolkit we use for developing our web-based application using the Zen AJAX framework from InterSystems Cache'. The HTML5 Boilerplate has been integrated into many CMS toolsets, and now we have it integrated into our generated pages too. In addition to discussing the features and benefits of the HTML5 Boilerplate, I will demo our Zen development studio environment. We will create a web page from our page template so that we get the Boilerplate features. This presentation should be fun for anyone interested in either the HTML5 Boilerplate or those who would just like a peak at how we are writing a brand new MultiValue application using the Zen AJAX platform that comes with Cache'.
