This two-part workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to HTML5, moving from an overview for beginners in the morning to a more advanced exploration in the afternoon.

Part I, 9:30-11:30 am

In the morning hands-on session, targeted to beginners, we will define HTML5 and its scope, providing an overview of the HTML5 featureset. We will create a basic, semantic HTML5 document, discussing each piece of the document and its purpose, and also take a look at the exciting possibilities with the new capabilities in HTML5.

Part II, 1:30-4:00 pm

In the afternoon hands-on session, targeted to those with some knowledge of HTML5, we will create a complex form from scratch, using a variety of HTML5 and related features, including new HTML5 input types, polyfills for browsers lacking support, and more.


This workshop is free and open to all UCSB campus employees. Registration is limited to 50 participants. Pre-registration is required. Sign up online at (log in with your UCSBNetID and search for "HTML5"). You can sign up for Part I, Part II, or both sessions. For questions, send email to
