Overview

Practical HTML5 Projects is a collection of valuable web techniques that any developer or designer can use. This book is all about saving time. Busy web developers should not have to plow through pages of theory or history only to discover that no practical applications are provided, nor should they have to read a paragraph five times to extract some meaning from it. All of the techniques within this book are explained using fully worked examples that you can immediately apply to your own projects.

With each technique the book provides:

  • A practical and useful example (and a screen shot of the end result where applicable).
  • The markup for a fully worked example.
  • A downloadable template to adapt for use in your own websites.
With Practical HTML5 Projects, you can dive straight into the book at the required chapter and immediately find answers to your website problems, and find the sample code you can use to get it right. Start creating websites using the practical examples, summaries, and templates.

This book includes topics such as rollover navigation menus without scripts, adding audio and video, rounded corners, drop shadows, adding PayPal services, and much more. It also includes sections on troubleshooting and transitioning to HTML5 and CSS3 to help bring your existing content up to date.

What you’ll learn

  • Discover new techniques for creating interesting, attractive and accessible websites
  • Save time spent researching poorly documented techniques
  • Avoid lengthy trial-and-error testing and hours spent reading single topic manuals
  • Download templates and quickly adapt them for your own use
  • Keep pace with the latest developments and recommendations in web design
  • Accumulate a useful tool kit of resources and templates

Who this book is for

Practical HTML5 Projects acknowledges the fact that designers, teachers, and students would rather produce something than spend hours researching how to produce it. Web developers and designers can dive right into the book, take a template and adapt it. IT teachers can set student projects based on the techniques and templates revealed in the book.

Meet the Author

Adrian West resigned as a chartered engineer and has been teaching in one form or another since 1982. He introduced computers into his work place in 1989 and taught the staff how to use them. For 13 years he has designed and produced websites for businesses and charities in his present location Colyton, Devon, UK. He served as a computer technician to about 100 locals. He stopped visiting and teaching people five years ago so that he could concentrate on his favourite occupation, designing websites. To avoid disappointing his former customers, he launched his free computer help website www.colycomputerhelp.co.uk. He also writes monthly computer help articles in two local magazines. Adrian is the author of Practical HTML5 Projects; Apress May 2012; ISBN-13: 978-1-4302-4275-8.

Frustrated by over complicated MySQL manuals that assumed the reader would fill in the many gaps in the instructions, he researched, tested and developed a fully explained and simplified method to eliminate the difficulties he experienced; this book is the result.
