Visualizing IoT Data with HTML5 Dashboards for Real-Time Action
Increasing IoT connectivity is forcing enterprises to find elegant solutions
to organize and visualize all incoming data from these connected devices with
re-configurable dashboard widgets to effectively allow rapid decision-making
for everything from immediate actions in tactical situations to strategic
analysis and reporting.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Shikhir Singh, Senior Developer Relations
Manager at Sencha, will discuss how to create HTML5 dashboards that interact
with IoT devices via Ext JS constructed components like Grids, Charts, and

The rapidly changing and fast-growing opportunity for more businesses to
reach their customers and deliver their services via mobile applications is
at a crossroads.
Over just the past two years, the demand for mobile applications on more
capable classes of devices, such as smartphones and tablets, has skyrocketed.
Now businesses need to figure out how they can get into the action.
Small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) especially need to reevaluate their
application development and end-user access strategies to be able to deliver
low-cost yet impactful applications to these newer devices. This goes for
reaching employees, as well as partners, users, and customers.
Hopefully, there's a shift in the skills required to put these applications
on these devices and distribute them. The emphasis on capabilities is moving
from hardcore coders -- with mastery of embedded platf... (more)
Welcome to part two of the four part primer to HTML5 development. In this
article, I will showcase some of the additions to the HTML5 tag library that
we can leverage to make media-rich websites and web applications in the blink
of an eye without Flash or other 3rd-party code.
HTML5 will certainly have an impact on web applications, but not nearly as
much as hoped on the mobile application market
There’s a war on the horizon. But despite appearances, it’s a war for
interactive web application dominance, and not one that’s likely to impact
very heavily the war between mobile and web applications.
First we have a report by ABI Research indicating a surge in the support of
HTML5 on mobile devices indicating substantially impressive growth over the
next five years.
More than 2.1 billion mobile devices will have HTML5 browsers by 2016, up
from just 109 million in 2010, according to a new report by ABI Research. --
The HTML Boom is Coming. Fast. (June 22, 2011)
Impressive, no? But browser support does not mean use, and a report issued
the day before by yet another analytics firm indicates that HTML5 usage on
mobile applications is actually dec... (more)
HTML5 is a draft specification for the next major iteration of HTML. It
represents a break from its predecessors, HTML4 and XHTML. Some elements have
been removed and it is no longer based on SGML, an older standard for
document markup. HTML5 also has more allowances for incorrect syntax than
were present in HTML4. It has rules for parsing to allow different browsers
to display the same incorrectly formatted document in the same fashion. There
are many notable additions to HTML, such as native drawing support and
audiovisual elements. In this chapter, we discuss the features added by HTML5
Beyond Basic HTML
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), invented by Tim Berners-Lee, has come a
long way since its inception in 1990. Figure 1-1 shows an abbreviated
timeline of HTML from the HTML5Rocks slides
Although I started with Cold Fusion for application development, I did plenty
brochureware sites with HTML. I believe the version was HTML 2.0 for IE 2.0.
I lived in the browser world for years doing Cold Fusion, ASP, and HTML
sites. When winforms and Smart Client with Web Services emerged I changed my
religion. I have been avoiding the browser whenever possible since.
For the past couple of years my extent of using simple HTML has been limited
to writing blogs and book reviews. Simple HTML means no ASP.NET or ASP.NET
MVC. With all the HTML5 hype I figured I would take some time and read a few
books on it. This one is my third and I have one more on the way.
So far I have found HTML5 is no different than any other version with respect
to the way its capabilities are implemented and where it belongs when
architecting a solution. It is far reaching, but if you want a rich... (more)
This is the second post of a two-part blog post that discusses HTML5
WebSocket and security. The first post, HTML5 WebSocket Security is Strong,
talked about the security benefits that derive from being HTTP-compatible and
the WebSocket standard itself. In this, the second post, I will highlight
some of the extra security capabilities that Kaazing WebSocket Gateway
Kaazing WebSocket Gateway makes your Web application architecture more
secure. We leverage the HTTP and WebSocket standards as well as
Kaazing-specific technology for capabilities beyond what the standard
provides, but what real-world applications typically need. What are some of
those things? Read on…
HTTP Authentication (Challenge/Response)
Specified by RFC 2617, a WebSocket gateway/server can issue a standard HTTP
challenge and receive a token or other authentication information in the HTTP
The CSS3 Anthology by Rachel Andrews is subtitled instant CSS answers,
how-to's, and examples. This subtitle clearly explains the goal of this book.
The book consists of nine chapters. The first chapter is a quick review of
CSS. The other chapters cover major topics such as text styling, image design
elements, navigation, tabular data, forms and user interfaces, CSS
positioning basics and CSS for layout. The topics in each chapter are laid
out in the form of a question followed by one or more solutions and then a
discussion explaining why that solution was offered. Here is an example of
one of the questions: How do I remove the large gap between an h1 element and
the following paragraph?
I really like this book because it's a practical problem solver for everyday
issues you encounter when designing web pages. It is especially useful for
people just getting started ... (more)

PALM DESERT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/01/11 -- [DEMO Spring 2011] -- Today,
Ajax.org announced the launch of Cloud9 IDE at DEMO Spring 2011, bringing web
and mobile app development into the total cloud with a commercial PaaS.
Cloud9 IDE provides the first cloud-based Integrated Development Environment
Developers can access, edit, and share projects anywhere, to build, test,
debug, and deploy web and mobile applications in as little as half the time,
with fewer technical skills. Its merger with the Mozilla Skywriter project
underwrites the quality of Cloud9 and the breadth of its community support.
"It's ironic that all web and mobile apps written to date have been developed
on the desktop," said Matt Marshall, DEMO executive producer. "Now, thanks to
Ajax, developers can follow their users to th... (more)
HTML5 is a language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web, a core technology of the Internet. It is the latest revision of the HTML standard (originally created in 1990) and currently remains under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (web browsers, parsers etc.).
