Robin Nixon's HTML & HTML5 Crash Course

Whether you're a professional or amateur web developer you need all the HTML5 tools in your kit, and this book from the author of the best-selling Learning PHP, MySQL & JavaSript, is the fastest and easiest way there is to learn HTML5.

HTML5 is the future of HTML and all developers need to get up-to-speed with what it offers, including audio and video, without using a plug-in, and a canvas area with professional tools for creating paths, lines, curves, shapes, fills, gradients, patterns, text and more.

This book also provides accurate geolocation, background web workers, offline web appli­cations, microdata, a local storage engine and many other improvements to standard HTML, such as dozens of new form tags and attributes.

Reasons you will learn all you need from this course include the fact that each lecture begins by listing the three key skills you will learn, and a summary at the end of each lecture reminds you what you have learned.

Also, relevant and fully-tested examples illustrate every tag, attribute and function, and each lecture features several notes providing extra, handy advice. Plus the examples have all been thoroughly tested, and they can all be freely downloaded from the companion website.

This book is a great take-off as it's full of examples and exercises that start with very basics and go all the way till more advanced techniques. Stuffed with tons of useful snippets of code, it's instructive, concise and well-written.
