I got another job inquiry asking for my portfolio of HTML5 sites.
I never know how to answer these, as I have a sad tendency to be honest, which in the eyes of these recruiters sometimes makes you look a little bit sad.
But the sad, sad fact is I haven’t built any HTML5 sites yet.
At no place I’ve worked (and there have been some big ones) has it ever been even mentioned.
I’m excited to try it actually, though I’m not sure what to do about the browsers that don’t support it (which may be all of them at the time of this writing).
I did start reading up on the new features so as not to say inadvertently arrogant things if somebody asks me about it.
I also ordered the nice-looking book from A Book Apart that Jeremy Keith wrote and borough neighbor Jason Santa Maria designed.
I’m curious about the datagrid feature. Also wouldn’t be too unhappy to lose ‘div’ as a major element as I have never loved the name, because it means so little to anyone who isn’t a web designer or developer.
I would appreciate any comments on HTML5 from early adopters, haters, or those who are just confused like me…
