Announcing Head First HTML5 Programming | WickedlySmart

You’ve finished Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML and you’re ready to take the next step. Ready to move from Web pages to Web applications? Head First HTML5 Programming is perfect for you. You’ll learn about the newest features of HTML, like <canvas> and <video>, and the basics of JavaScript so you can use these new features to create interactive Web applications.

Whether you’ve done no programming yet at all, or you’ve copied and pasted some scripts without really knowing much about how they work, you’ll get up to speed with HTML5’s JavaScript APIs before you know it. Head First HTML5 Programming focuses on these APIs; you’ll use some of the new elements, but you’ll mostly be learning about how to interact with those elements and the rest of the DOM using JavaScript.

In Head First HTML5 Programming, you’ll write programs in JavaScript, manipulate the DOM, create drawings with canvas, add amazing effects to video, combine Web workers and canvas to create beautiful graphics, store data in the browser, create a map to track your location, and more.

Head First HTML5 Programming will be out in autumn; if you want a sneak peek, let us know and we’ll make sure you get access to the rough cut early!
