During this first W3C meetup in Tokyo ever, the virtue of the web was exposed.

HTML5. Mike Smith, codename Michael[tm] Smith @sideshowbarker reported the recent HTML5 stories, focusing on the template element.

Mobile webapps. The recent features to build attractive mobile web appwere developped by Tomomi from Nokia @girlie_mac. She covered all recent features and gave details about their implementations in the different mobile version browsers [slides]

Test the web. Earlier in the day, there was a Test The Web Forward event, a kind of great coding party where you test the web from top to bottom. It was a great opportunity here to have Tobie from Facebook and W3C fellow @tobie explaining us the main testing essence of the web [slides]

Security. I made a status on the web crypto API working group. Promoting how we could save the world (or at least support a better evoting user experience – with a bit of Paris and women power inside) [slides]

Design. Alan Stearns @alanstearns from Adobe made a fabulous CSS demo  [slides]

Gaming. Kazuho Oku @kazuho presented JSX allowing to improve performance for game coding [slides]
