A new survey conducted by Kendo UI finds that the majority of developers believe HTML5 technologies are very important. Kendo UI makes HTML5 development tools, which may have colored the results, but the findings are still noteworthy.
Of the 4,000 developers surveyed, 82 percent said HTML5 would be important in their jobs during the next 12 months. In addition, 63 percent said they were already creating HTML5 apps.
The survey contrasts with forecasts from market research firm Gartner, which has predicted that HTML5 won't be adopted widely for five to ten years.
