HTML5's new features have made it a real application development platform with widespread adoption throughout the industry for this purpose. Being able to create one application that can run on virtually any device from phone to desktop has made it the first choice among developers. Although JavaScript has been around for a while now, it wasn't until the introduction of HTML5 that we have been able to create dynamic, feature-rich applications rivaling those written for the desktop.

HTML5 Web Application Development by Example will give you the knowledge you need to build rich, interactive web applications from the ground up, incorporating the most popular HTML5 and CSS3 features available right now. This book is full of tips, tools, and example applications that will get you started writing your own applications today.
