"From chimp to pimp..."

  • Mar 14, 2010
That's how Bruce Lawson described the change from HTML4 to HTML5.  LOL!

Other memorable quotes from the presentation:

Are there any Mac or Linux users out there?  (A LOT of people raised their hands.)  You guys are missing out on the magic of Microsoft Paint....

Had I known that 400 people in Austin were going to see this, I would have shaved my armpits.  (In reference to a video he used in his presentation of him dressed as a ballerina.)

From Martin Kliehm:  If someone wants to make a hashtag shortener service... after telling the group what the hashtag for our session was

Basically, there was a good amount of comic relief in this presentation, which is an important part of any presentation IMO.  As someone who has taken as one of many hobbies learning HTML, CSS, Javascript and some other things, I found this session to be just the right balance of introductory information and technical information.  There was just enough to let everyone know what kinds of changes were coming so they hit the mark in terms of what I expected from the presentation.  Nice job!

What did you think of this review?

LOL, that's a hilarious quote! To be fair, though, it did take HTML about a decade to go from chimp to pimp ;)  And I'm curious, what was the hashtag for this panel?  Thanks for sharing, Jodi, this sounds awesome!
