Our focus on HTML5 and web standards was reinforced during the keynote from James Pearce, Head of Mobile Developer Relations at Facebook, where he shared his perspective on how the web is evolving to become simultaneously more social and mobile, encouraging developers to join efforts to standardize on web platforms. He talked about the shift towards mobile and how the next wave of businesses and companies will be mobile-first, leaving the desktop age behind. Social and mobile were made for each other, and we have a far better social experience while mobile, than while sitting behind a computer because we can include our friends in our mobile experiences using social platforms. The data Pearce shared from Facebook proves this point with 1.1 billion monthly mobile visits. Pearce went on to say that Facebook has 900 million active users after 8 years, and in just half that time, they have 488 million active mobile users after only 4 years. He also demonstrated Tizen's HTML5 compliance on mobile with an ad hoc demo using Ringmark, to show that Tizen supports more HTML5 features than many other mobile and desktop web browsers. Technologies like Ringmark are becoming increasingly important as a way to demonstrate HTML5 compliance and help developers write applications that will work on their targeted mobile device.

If you were unable to make the trip to sunny San Francisco last week, fear not. We have plenty of audio, video and presentation materials available for almost every keynote or session.
