Course Overview
Hello and welcome to HTML5 Fundamentals. This is Craig Shoemaker, and I'm glad you're here. As for me, I've worked as a professional developer for over 15 years specializing in the web. I've produced a number of courses here on Pluralsight, written for CODE Magazine and MSDN Magazine, and also for Wiley Publishing. Further, I'm a former ASP. NET MVP and the host of Polymorphic Podcast. And I've been both skydiving and bungee jumping, and I can tell you skydiving is more fun! HTML5 is a big and broad topic that has evolved much over the years. In this course, you'll learn about the intersection of new markup and JavaScript APIs that make up what we now know and love as HTML5. To help grant perspective, you'll learn about the history of HTML5 and what that means for the future. You'll learn about different areas of the API such as selection, media, canvas, forms, and drag and drop. You'll learn how you can get reliable information regarding browser support and how to easily detect if specific features are available in your user's browsers. And since we live in an ever-changing environment, you'll also learn about polyfills and fallbacks and how they can help you work with not yet implemented features today. So I look forward to spending this time with you during the next six modules to learn all about HTML5. So let's dive in together and learn all about HTML5.
