Im only half way through but so far have found it to be brilliant. A great incite in to good design practises as well and look at most of the new elements in HTML5 with out getting bogged down with too much technical jargon.All the standards are available on the internet for free [...] What your money buys you is an explanation of how to use this information to make high functioning websites Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is would like to know about the capabilities of HTML5.
As an introduction to HTML, it serves well enough. You could just go to the W3C site and read through their HTML 5 section and get a lot of what is in HTML 5 yourself, but it's significantly more helpful to have a guided tour from a book like this. The book includes a fair amount of realish-world examples. It also devotes a good amount of space to supporting assistive technologies which is good.
As an introduction, the book serves its purpose. I can't imagine going back to this to re-read. I also have to mark it down because what is mildly tiresome juvenille humour at the start becomes downright wearying by the end. By the time the authors are telling me they're going to come round to my house and scribble on my FrontPage CD (yes, very funny LOLLOLOL, I do most of my webwork in Vi as it happens), I'm just wishing I'd found a book that had a bit more of a thorough, business-like approach. The authors seem to be "geeks" whereas what I want is just information, concise and to the point.
Still, the book is useful. It's good to have a decent view of what is now emerging so that you can work it in to your projects from the start right now.
As HTML5 has moved forward since the release of the first edition, so has the techniques and standards for coding with the new APIs. With this update you get to dive into the getUserMedia API, take a look at some WebRTC and even some new geolocation and storage techniques. Everything you need to know has been chucked into this no-fuss beginners guide to being awesome at HTML5. Even if you're not a beginner, it's a book that is a must own for constant refreshers.
If you consider yourself a developer for the web; You must own this book.
This book is ideal for anyone who creates websites, or wants to know just what HTML5 can do.
Written in an easy to follow style, there are nervous examples of "real world" applications for elements of HTML5 whether it's separating content from sidebars, using the canvas element or passing data between browser windows and much more.
If you work with maintaining or updating websites in any way other, then you really should buy this book.
