HTML5 is a markup language that creates and presents content for the World Wide Web. It is an important technology of the Internet that was proposed by Opera Software (News - Alert). It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard and is currently under development. Its major objectives have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia, while keeping it easy to read.
Taking into account the increasing demand for this technology, Elinext IT-Directors and senior developers conducted a meeting to increase the company’s involvement with this technology, the company announced.
HTML5 supports all audio and video media elements. Thus, the user does not require a Flash player or any other third party plug-in to stream and access audio and video content. The <audio> and <video> tags are simple to use and they work smoothly on various platforms. HTML5 playback can even replace Flash or Silverlight in the coming years. HTML5 also helps in creating improved structure of websites.
“HTML5 has excellent support for mobile devices, which is one of our core competences. Elinext has already completed many projects with native iPhone (News - Alert) apps, Android apps, Windows Phone apps and BlackBerry apps,” said Elinext CTO, Vladimir Antonovich, in a company press release. “Overall, the applicable areas of HTML5 include websites and their mobile versions, geolocation applications, TV apps, mobile apps, social networking, CMS, and games.”
In 2011, the company announced one more achievement of its development team. It received a certificate on the successful completion of the "RESTful Svcs in Java" training course offered by the CA Technologies (News - Alert) Virtual Learning Center. CA Technologies is an IT firm that focuses on software management solutions, and cooperates with the world's leading universities to provide both young and seasoned programmers access to a goldmine of information as regards to the best practices of software development.
