The basic idea around promises are that rather than issuing a blocking call for a resource (IO, Network, etc.) you can immediately return a promise for a future value that will eventually be fulfilled. This allows you to write non-blocking logic that executes asynchronously without having to write a lot of synchronization and plumbing code. * HTML5 Forms input types, attributes and new elements – demos, tips and tricks - Robert’s talk [http://robertnyman.com/2011/08/16/html5-forms-input-types-attributes-and-new-elements-demos-tips-and-tricks/] Robert Nyman lists out and demonstrates the 13 new input types, 18 new attributes and 5 new elements in HTML5 forms. * Building the Account at a Glance HTML5/jQuery Application [http://weblogs.asp.net/dwahlin/archive/2011/08/15/building-the-account-at-a-glance-html5-jquery-application.aspx] Dan Wahlin gives a fairly detailed overview of the “Account at a Glance” HTML5application started in MIX11 and now released for investigation.
