Web Content vs. Web Applications

We all want to create richer and more enjoyable user experiences on the web. Traditionally content has been seen as the main driver behind this – but more recently web applications (apps) have received more focus. From a standards perspective the discussion focuses on whether enriched content and information-rich applications are actually just two sides of the same coin? Is Content really king or will Apps take over as the main driver for the information network we all know know as the Internet?

Fact is that new needs have emerged, driven by user expectations and desires, and by the functionality of software and hardware for new kinds of devices. These new demands is what the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is trying to make standards for. So at the J. Boye Aarhus 11 web and intranet conference, we have invited Olle Olsson from W3C to explore the space of requirements and needs for emerging standards, and how a toolbox of technologies can support both views of the web in a harmonious way.

This session is also a great way to get a glimpse of which direction the web is going as Olle will share the newest developments on standards like HTML5 and CSS3. Olle will be speaking on the Standards & Technology conference track, where you can also find sessions on cloud computing, open source and video.
