HTML5 Beginners Crash Course

Learn HTML5 - the next frontier in web development!

About this course

HTML5 for Beginners is the fastest way to learn HTML5. This highly informative and popular course, already taken by over 1,600 people, is taught by Robin Nixon, author of Learning PHP, MySQL and JavaScript (the most popular book on web development worldwide for over two years). The course covers everything you need to know to learn HTML5 and leverage its power to create highly dynamic websites.

Because it starts from the first principles of HTML, you need no prior knowledge of the subject, since the course begins with a thorough introduction to HTML (which skilled users can skip), before moving onto what's new in HTML5.

HTML5 is the latest version of the Web's bedrock markup language, HTML. But it has come to stand for much more than the average, slow-moving technical standard. HTML5 is intended to make web sites behave more like conventional desktop applications, incorporating video, complex interactions and data as well as greater compatibility with mobile devices.

Something in the last 18 months kicked the HTML5 adoption machine into overdrive. Maybe it was Apple and Microsoft joining hands and dubbing it the future of the web (who knew it could happen?!). Maybe it was Google's launch of the Chrome Web Store, with its focus on HTML5 (get your angry birds fix in a 15 inch screen!). Maybe it was the HTML5-friendly (or shall I say Flash-unfriendly) iPad's meteoric sales. Whatever it was, a recent wave of web apps from huge technology giants confirms that this much-hyped language has business' blessing.

But where do you come in? As HTML5 becomes more and more popular, other web development solutions become less and less prevalent. In a few short years, either you'll be coding in HTML5 or you'll be working on IE 6 (good luck with that one!). On the flipside, develop a few HTML5 pages now and you'll become a guru, be the envy of your peers, and will be building websites that work on PC, Mac, iPhone, Android, Firefox, Chrome, the iPad, and any other device or browser you can think of.
