What’s the hottest topic covered in developerWorks articles? HTML5

OK, so I dropped the spoiler in the title. Mind you, you could argue that this is hardly surprising given the importance of mobile development at this point in time. Still, no less than 3 of the top 10 articles in the developerWorks newsletter for the month of May (where we showcase our latest content on a weekly basis) covers mobile web app development.

Also, we weren’t seeing this level of interest in HTML5 even a year ago. True, there was a lot of interest in mobile: but at that time the larger focus was around mobile platform development (led by iPhone and Android).
