Further to this, West gives instruction on the basics of how to use the canvas tool. I had previously read part of a book on the HTML5 Canvas, which emphasized the creation of static images, games, and animations. While West only explores static images and drawings in his canvas example--and not animations or video games--he is par non in providing an excellent introductory foundation for canvas applications. For instance, I previously looked at multiple books to try to understand what the canvas "save" and "restore" methods accomplished, but never fully understood the available descriptions. West, however, ended my quest by providing a very clear explanation of not only these features but many others.
This book is definitely for beginners. While easy to read for experienced and non-experienced alike, it starts at the very beginning and explains everything in detail. As I said, I already had experience with HTML, so this was more of a refresher to me, as well as a way to quickly update myself on HTML5. This is one of the best books I've seen so far for this particular topic.
One of my favorite things about this book is the fact that it is in full color. It's so much easier to understand code when the important parts are a different color, so they stand out. It really enhances the experience of learning something new.
I highly encourage anyone interested in learning HTML5 to grab a copy of this book and dig in. You won't regret it!
If you are interested in learning HTML, then this book would be a very good book for you. The book uses the standard approach of introducing HTML concepts by developing a website. The website being developed is nothing to get excited about --> very old school and a poor use of HTML layout capabilities. However, you will get the idea of how HTML is used to setup a website and the basics of web page development. You should find another resource that describes the latest in web page design / astetics.
The code examples are easy to read and broken up into small chucks to help make the concept being demonstrated easy to grasp.
It should not take more than a week of part time to go through the book, enter the code and have a working example to play with.
