During TechEd India I was attending HTML5 session along with regular Database sessions. Couple of attendees were discussing database there and I find the incidence very interesting.
Note: Please take the whole discussion keeping humor as primary. There is no incident to disrespect anybody.
Attendee1: I wonder if this HTML5 works on 64-bit machine – hopefully they support it?
Attendee2: I think they will create HTML5 such a way that it will work on 32-bit and 64-bit machine.
Attendee1: Yeah they should.
Attendee2: I wonder how much work the product team developer have to do – they have to create 32-bit browser which supports 32-bit and 64-bit HTML5 and on 64-bit browser support for 32-bit and 64-bit HTML5.
I could not stop myself from speaking as I was listening this loud conversation sitting behind them.
Pinal: Hey, I think HTML5 is markup language and it will work on 32-bit and 64-bit browser without any special requirement. Just like earlier version of HTML there is no different coding for 32-bit or 64-bit browser.
Attednee2: Are you web developer too?
Pinal: Yes, I am web developer but I love to work on database technology.
Attendee1: Are you sure regarding there is no specific HTML for 64-bit machine?
Attendee2: Yeah. Tell me. Does your database back up from 64-bit work on 32-bit machine?
Pinal: Yes. You can restore database backup from 64-bit to 32-bit machine without issue, or vice-a-versa. Database backup is just a file and it can work independent of the version. Just like TXT file or JPG file.
Both of the attendees got very quite. Finally they whispered.
Attendee1: (Whispering) Let us try out what he is suggesting.
Attendee2: (Nodding Yes)
Pinal: (Looking at them with Wide Open Eyes).
