Top customer reviews
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.
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.
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.
The writers treat the reader as an adult with experience in the basics. It gives the reasons why things are done the way they are but does not do it in a condescending way.
It also goes beyond the basics with the 'Expert Tips' sections letting an advanced user explore.
I think my favorite part of the book is that it tells you what to expect from the current crop of browsers and HTML authoring tools.
It shows that the writers actually did their research on more than just their favorite tools.
All-in-all a great book on a very timely subject.
