As you probably know, the web’s the next big thing again: everyone’s talking about HTML 5, strictly speaking the new HTML standard, but often bandied about to apply to a range of technologies including the latest versions of HTML, CSS and SVG (scalable vector graphics). Together, they will make it easier to create interactive websites. At a time when devices are increasingly mobile and internet-enabled, and much of the value in our software comes from having it connected to streams of data (think: Facebook, Google, Twitter), lots of people are excited about the opportunity to create web-based software more esily. Especially since it breaks down a lot of the boundaries between different devices and software distribution channels. Nearly every device has a web browser, and that’s all it needs to run HTML 5 code (assuming the browser is up-to-date, of course).
