HTML5 isn't just a buzzword or an alternative to Flash. It's about the future of standards-based web development, and in this talk we'll discuss ways we can take advantage of HTML5, CSS3, and some new APIs to build better experiences for our users, even if our users aren't runing the latest and greatest browsers.

We'll discuss:
* Semantic markup and its impact on design
* Improving forms
* Leveraging local storage
* Mobile applications
* Geolocation
* Accessibility improvements

We'll stay hype-free, and only focus on the things we can use today, while keeping an eye on what's coming next.
