The most significant upgrade to the web since 1992, HTML5 is seeing rapid adoption in both the professional and consumer markets to meet growing demand for real-time, highly interactive web experiences. The HTML5 specification leapfrogs the workarounds, plug-ins and rich client platforms that have become routine for improving performance of web applications based on previous versions of HTML. The purpose of HTML5 Live is to present, detail and explore the major components of the HTML5 standard, including browser support, architecture, communication, mobile applications and web applications.

"Every major browser vendor has begun to embrace HTML5 as part of their current offerings and as a major part of their product roadmaps moving forward," said Jonas Jacobi, co-founder and CEO, Kaazing. "We decided to launch and host HTML5 Live to address the range of issues presented by the migration to HTML5 and to help developers understand how they can adopt and leverage the new standard to design a new generation of real-time, highly interactive, multi-platform applications."

The event will be keynoted by Jeffrey Hammond, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research. Hammond is a leading expert on software modeling techniques, integrated development environments and the emergence of new rich Internet application development practices. Speakers will also include:
