HTML5 Dev Con announced: 27 September in San Francisco
It's one of the emerging hot technologies for web and mobile, so it makes sense that what's being marketed as the world's first-ever HTML5 developer conference has been announced.

A one-day affair to be held at the San Francisco Westin Hotel on September 27, it's designed to bring together the HTML5, JavaScript and mobile developer communities.

Under the tag, 'JavaScript is our sword, HTML5 is our shield, and the game is on!', games will be a key element, while general topics will include development tools, deployment models on mobile platforms, and performance measurement.

On the soapbox

Sibblingz, developer of the HTML5-compatible Spaceport game engine, is the platinum sponsor and founder, Ben Savage, will be the keynote speaker, addressing the future of HTML5 gaming.

"Games are the single most popular application on mobile devices and HTML5 is the emerging development platform," said Savage.

"We believe Spaceport brings a practical development environment and deployment model for high-performance HTML5 game development and operations."

Other speakers include a keynote by Doug Crockford, expert and author of JavaScript: The Good Parts, Josh Elman, the former platform product manager at Facebook and Twitter, as well as several speakers from the Google Chrome team and game engine libraries, Microsoft.

Joe Montasero, appMobi co-founder, and Peter Relan, CEO of Crowdstar and YouWeb will also be talking.

Currently priced at an early bird $65 until September 12, you can find out more details here.
