Observations from DevReach, Day 1

A common theme at DevReach seems to be that HTML5 is the future, and Web-authors can no longer ignore the form factor of mobile devices. Any programmer who still want to be in business in a couple of years need to learn JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3. With the introduction of Win8 and the Metro style UI, this might even be true for non-web developers.
Luckily it seems that CSS3 will provide all the cool stuff we have come to expect from XAML, Silverlight and WPF. It will however be necessary to provide alternate style tags for the different browsers and some kind of fallback mechanism to support older browsers.
Visuel studio 201x will have added support for vendor specific style tags through code snippets, and the editor has been greatly improved to support javascript better. Overall the code editors in Visual Studio have been improved to have a more consistent feature set.
