HTML 5 Tutorials Chapter 1: Introduction
Posted Date: 17-Aug-2011
Did you hear the buzz on Html 5? If you are looking for some HTML 5 tutorials, you are at the right place. I am starting a series of HTML 5 tutorials. Read this post to find more information about our HTML 5 tutorials.
Microsoft is embracing HTML 5 as the default platform for application development for Windows 8. This announcement from Microsoft came as a surprise to the application developers, especially to the Silverlight developers.
Until the announcement of HTML 5 based App model of Windows 8, Html was considered as a set of tags for developing web pages. Html 5 is an upcoming standard and is obviously much more powerful than current version of Html, but no one expected it could be used for serious application development. In fact, I remember complaint from a Silverlight developer:
"So far we were riding a horse (Silverlight) and now we are forced to settle with a donkey (Html)"
. This shows the frustration of developers in Microsoft pushing Html 5 instead of Silverlight.
HTML 5 Tutorials
This is the first and introductory chapter of a set of HTML 5 tutorials I am planning to write. Since HTML 5 specification is still under development, this tutorial may go through several revisions and may contain outdated information at times. If you find any information that is not correct or outdated, please let me know by posting a response below. I will do my best to clarify or correct the information as quickly as possible.
I will be organizing the HTML 5 tutorials as a series of articles. You can navigate to the next or previous chapters using the "related articles" link in the bottom of each chapter.
You are not required to follow the order in which I have written the tutorials. However, following the series may help you learn in an organized manner. I will be providing several samples, mini projects and source code in some chapters. You will be able to download several HTML 5 sample applications in the upcoming chapters.
Since I am just starting with this HTML 5 tutorials, I like to hear from you about what you like me to cover. If you have any suggestions on what need to be included or have any suggestions to improve these tutorials, please feel free to write to me.
