HTML5 To Be Primary Language for Web-based Apps Says Ballmer
This year's conference theme is cloud computing with a focus on Windows Azure, Windows Phone 7 and Internet Explorer 9. The Redmond company hope that developers in the cloud-computing movement are aware of, and using its cloud computing platforms.
As Ballmer put it, "The glue that I think allows this world to come together and allow for amazing information is HTML5." Internet Explorer 9 has been downloaded over 10 million times, ensuring that its latest browser, which supports HTML5, is going to be a dominant player in the future of the web.
