Practical HTML5

by Gill Cleeren

HTML5 has been around now for some time. But how do you get your head around all that comes with it? The answer is by doing. In this Practical HTML5 course, you can do exactly that by building a site from scratch, adding new HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript features. The end result is a deeper understanding of how the various building blocks work together, and you'll have a working site as well!

What you'll learn

This course is a very practical way to learn web development using HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3. We start with an empty website at the beginning of module 1. With every module, new topics are introduced. Instead of showing how they work in a stand-alone demo, they are added directly to our site. The outcome is a fully-functioning site that includes all of the HTML5 topics covered in the course. The site provides an online storefront for a coffee shop named Joe's Coffee Store. Among many other features, your finished site includes support for the canvas, drag and drop, new input types, geolocation, SVG, CSS3, audio, media, and much more. To conclude, this course takes the practical approach: open an editor, follow along, and by the time the course is done you'll have the whole picture of how the different HTML5 building blocks work together and can help you in avoiding the use of plugins for your web development.
