Jeff Burtoft, an HTML5 technical evangelist with Microsoft, joins us this week to talk about the flexibility and cross-platform power of HTML5 in Windows Phone. The in-depth example that we cover in the video is a project called YetiBowl, a standards-compliant HTML5 game that runs flawlessly on the web, as a Windows 8 app, and as a Windows Phone 8 app. For more information, see Developing in HTML5 and Javascript for Windows Phone.
