Like most developers, you’ve probably heard of HTML5 by now. And like most developers, you’ve yet to use it.

Christian Ready started his professional life as an astronomer with the Hubble Space Telescope and other space-based observatories. But understanding the nature of the universe isn’t nearly as exciting as CFML, so he switched careers to web development. (Budget cutbacks at NASA had *nothing* to do it it, honest!) In addition to CFML, Christian is an advocate for web standards and accessibility and currently works for Nsite, LLC.
