About the Author

Marco is one of the most dynamic developers and consultants in the Adobe world. He has been passionate about informatics since he was little more than a child and used to program games in Basic for Commodore 64 before dedicating himself, while still very young, to innovative projects for the web using Flash and Director (as far back as versions 3 and 5.) In 2001, he began to collaborate with Macromedia Italia. Since that year he has produced and headed a long series of presentations, conferences and articles, which you can find listed in detail in his blog entitled ""hands on Adobe world"" (casario.blogs.com,) which is currently receiving several thousands of unique visitors every day. In 2005, Marco founded Comtaste (www.comtaste.com,) a company dedicated to exploring new frontiers in Rich Internet Applications and the convergence between the web and the world of mobile devices MobyMobile (www.mobymobile.com) and YouThru (www.youthru.com) are representative of their recent work. Another example of Marco's achievements is that he is founder of the biggest worldwide Flash Lite User Group (groups.yahoo.com/group/FlashLite/) and of www.augitaly.com, a reference point for the Italian community of Adobe users, in which he carries out the role of Channel Manager for the section dedicated to Flex (www.augitaly.com/flexgala.) Marco is currently busy working on the development (in Flex) of a very ambitious project concerning bank counters at European level, and in various consulting and Flex and Flash Media Server training activities for the realisation of Rich Internet Applications on behalf of buyers of the calibre of Capgemini, Engineering, IBM partners, and Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd.

Generally this book has good potential, but there are many gaps. Some significant pieces of HTML5 and related technologies are missing from this book, including: Web Workers, CSS3, mobile APIs (Touch Events, Device Orientation), HTML5+RDFa, XHTML5, Scalable Vector Graphics - the list can go on. There is also nothing about HTML5-specific syntax, e.g. optional tags/quotes, etc. And I would not call this book "Solutions". It it basically a light overview of HTML5.

i wish other programming books were written this way. the code always seems to work (which is not a given with other books). and it is organized really well. my web programming instructor recommended it and im glad he did.
it shows each topic by name, quickly describes in plain english what it does, shows an example of the code snippet, but what really separates it from the rest is that it shows the code in context of the rest web page and how to incorporate it into your program. then finishes it off with noteworthy tips to make it easier and more useful to you.

This book is collection of examples about HTML5. The examples are well explained with
full code solution, I liked that part because every example was whole solution not just
code snippet. Some newer features in HTML5 lack more examples thus the four stars.
If you learn by example this is book for you.

Written in an easy-to-understand style. This is a handy text book for people wanting to learn HTML5 and reference book for those who already are familiar with it.

This book is a great toolkit for anyone who works with HTML5 and for those who are starting with HTML5. Indeed, beginners will be able to deploy HTML5 elements expediently and simply if using this book as an added resource.

What appeals to me is the module-based approach that describes a solution, such as Detecting Video Support across Browsers, or Working with the HTML5 Canvas. The authors define the problem, identify what is involved, present the relevant elements then explain how to build it in simple terms. All of this is with code examples. Easy stuff.

Another strong point of this book, is the chapters that deal with working with APIs, and deploying these both "In App" and via WebSockets for example. All this is clearly presented, and sample code provided as well. These are complex concepts for beginners. However, they are presented in a module-based approach with clear explanations. Picking up the process is not difficult. If you are an experienced coder, you will find these sections handy as a reminder, and for finding solutions that can be added to your own code toolkit.

This book is not meant to be read start to finish. Its value lies in the accessibility of its content, so that the user can select solutions where relevant. For beginners and advanced users alike, this is resource well worth adding to your collection.
