Elinext Group, an alliance of software, web, mobile and TV app development companies, recognizes great prospects for HTML5

May 4, 2012. Considering the growing demand for HTML5, Elinext IT-Directors and Senior Developers have organized a meeting to increase the company’s involvement with this technology. HTML5 is one of the most talked-about IT-trends today, and many experts have reached a consensus that it is going to be a huge hit in the near future.

So why using HTML5? Although it is still a work in progress that will be finalized during the coming years, HTML5 is already quite mature in terms of the set of tags and application programming interfaces (APIs).

Practice shows that users in many cases are reluctant to install extra players or plug-ins. HTML5 is exactly directed at unification and simplification. “HTML5 is expected to alter the way websites used to work previously. Developers can create with it incredibly catching interactive pages,” said the speaker Gennady Sergeenko, Elinext Project Manager and certified HTML5 professional.

A distinctive advantage of using HTML5 is its support of all audio and video media elements. Thus, you do not need a Flash player or any other third party plug-in to effectively stream and access audio and video content. The respective

HTML5 implies improved structure of websites. This can result in better scanning by search engines and higher page ranks, since the new semantic code is more SEO-friendly. The set of APIs helps reduce the size and complexity of the code and avoid exterior libraries. The application interfaces include the canvas element for immediate 2D and 3D drawings; drag-and-drop; web workers; web storage; cross-document messaging; file API. HTML5 can be used as a programming language for different frameworks, technologies and even operation systems. Furthermore, HTML5 pushes the boundaries of online games, and the browser game market can benefit greatly from it.

HTML5 makes it easier, faster and more economical to create websites, which are fully functional on mobile screens. “HTML5 has excellent support for mobile devices, which is one of our core competences. Elinext has already completed many projects with native iPhone apps, Android apps, Windows Phone apps and BlackBerry apps,” said Elinext CTO Vladimir Antonovich. Overall, the applicable areas of HTML5 include websites and their mobile versions, geolocation applications, TV apps, mobile apps, social networking, CMS, games.
