May 29, 2012 Transcript of #CommsChat on HTML5 with Cathal Smyth

For the last #CommsChat of May, we were joined by Cathal Smyth of The Group to discuss HTML5, which is currently challenging the dominance of Flash when it comes to online communications. Topics on the night included:

  • What is HTML5?
  • How is HTML5 an improvement on previous formats and what does it allow us to achieve?
  • How does HTML5 relate to web apps?
  • Is freedom from the dominancy of Apple and Flash important?
  • Beyond the early adopters of the technology, what will be the wider effect of HTML5?

Below, you can download a full transcript, but here are some of the tweets that caught our eye:

@GroupFriends: From a techie perspective – it’s the long-awaited update to the HTML mark-up language

@mr_mcfly: HTML 5 also offers more flexibility over devices than platforms such as Flash

@jgombita: Someone or something had to kill Flash, @HelenMoore. Good on the iPad if it did! 🙂 c @mr_mcfly #commschat [crappy for #SEO]

@HelenMoore: @thecardwolf mobile is absolutely key so that is the crucial issue I think

@communicatemag: Crossplatform is key. Forecast is end of 2013 50%+ of enterprise apps = HTML5. Gone are days when mobiles were dictated by yr co.
