(with Mark Embling)
HTML5 is the latest iteration of the HTML standard we've all
come to know and (possibly) love. So what has changed, what is new and what
might this mean for us as web devs? This talk intends to answer these questions
by giving a broad overview of HTML5, with a focus on the various new elements
and APIs and what they abilities they give us.

Streams of Streams - Your Rx Prescription
(with Ray Booysen)
With any complex application, dealing with many streams of data can become very complex, especially when multi-threading is introduced. One of the solutions to this problem is the Microsoft Rx Framework. Built from the ground up to handle many streams of data in a well defined contract, Rx will blow you away with it's simplicity and power. Coupled with the power of LINQ and you have complete control of your data. This talk will go over the basics of Rx, how it is built, how you can use it in your apps, and even how useful it is in your tests. As usual, as few slides as possible, and as many code demos as possible.
