Overview

We are on the verge of a revolution. The web is becoming the main developing platform and the primary source for information and software. In recent years, mobile devices have turned Internet applications from possibilities into necessities, and now computers that work exclusively on the web are being developed and sold. The software for the web is getting more sophisticated than ever and is replacing desktop applications once and for all. This level of change is both experimental and radical, and HTML5 is making it possible.

HTML5 for Masterminds leads the reader step by step to gain essential knowledge and to master complex subjects included in the HTML5 specification. After reading this book, you will know how to structure your documents with HTML5, how to style them with CSS3 and how to work with the most powerful Javascript APIs.

This book is not an introduction of HTML5 but instead a complete course that will teach you how to build compelling websites and amazing web applications from scratch. Every chapter explores basic concepts as well as complicated issues of HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. Concepts are supported by fully functional codes to guide beginners and experts through every single tag, style or function included in the specification. The codes are distributed throughout the book in a specific order to gradually introduce complex subjects and make them accessible to everyone.

    Very easy to understand

    I love this ebook. Everything is explained in a way that anybody with some HTML, CSS and JavaScript knowledge can follow the instructions fairly easy. The only complaint i have os that when reading in night mode, the highlighted text is unreadable because it's white text on white background.

    Glad I Bought It

    I'm glad I bought this book. I now have a pretty good base of html5. I'm assuming the author is a self-taught person as well because the book is so clear and easy to follow. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to build a good foundation of the languages involved in html5 as well as gaining hands-on experience on this new technology.

    perfect for creating web apps

    Every great once in a while you're lucky enough to come across the right book at the right time. This is that book for me. I am just starting with web apps and this book is just perfect for that. It should be a textbook! :-)

    Simple writing and down to earth examples

    This is not my first HTML5 book but probably the last one. So happy I came across it...
    I did not expect such a complete work. The specifications on the W3C web are really hard to understand.
    I needed something like this. This is an excellent book and I give it a high recommendation.

    It delivers what it promises

    I got this book as a gift, the writer sent me an evaluation copy.
    I jumped directly into the IndexedDB chapter because that's what I was interested in,
    and I couldn't believe it was explained in such a wonderfully simple way.
    Create your own codes and understand others will be easy with this book alone.
    Every subject is introduced first and developed later, one per chapter.
    Extremely easy to read and follow. It's a must have.
