HTML 5 First Look: Review

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

An excellent introduction to HTML5. Includes a useful comparison with HTML4, an overview of browser support (or lack of support) for the new specification, and an in-depth, hands-on look at new HTML5 features and best practices.  The course is very clearly organized and the exercises appropriate and useful. Exercises included new ways of handling traditional Web functionality as well as a taste of API support and associated technologies (geolocation, local storage, Web sockets) not currently available in HTML4, making the exercises a lot of fun to try out. The instructor is engaging and the movie was very professionally produced.

Though this course was produced in 2010, the technology it deals with is still evolving and the content remains relevant.
