Pro HTML5 Programming

The newest release for web developers from Apress Media

"With this major revision of HTML, web applications take on a power, ease, and responsiveness that simply did not exist before.” - Peter Lubbers, Author and Director of Kaazing

HTML5 is the first major upgrade of the web, implemented just in time to meet the demands of an imminent surge in connectivity. According to industry leaders at the HTML5 Live conference in New York City last month, there will be 15 billion connected devices by 2015 and 50 billion by 2020. Now HTML5 communication technologies, such as WebSocket, are needed to service this staggering demand. Apress Media is responding to this need with a new publication for developers called "Pro HTML5 Programming."    

This shift to HTML5 will enable developers to create exciting, next-generation web applications. Making use of HTML5’s features means a more engaging and responsive web experience for users, and far less coding for programmers.

Peter Lubbers, co-author of "Pro HTML5 Programming" and Director of Documentation and Training at Kaazing, explains the latest about HTML5: “We're super excited about HTML5. If you want to build a universal web application, you cannot avoid HTML5 anymore. HTML5 is packed with great features and new APIs and this book was written for anyone looking to give their web apps an extra edge. With this major revision of HTML, web applications take on a power, ease, and responsiveness that simply did not exist before.”

With “Pro HTML5 Programming,” developers will learn how to use the latest cutting-edge HTML5 web technology to build web applications with unparalleled functionality, speed, and responsiveness. This book covers all the new HTML5 APIs and explains how to create real-time HTML5 applications that tap the full potential of modern browsers and provides practical, real-world examples of HTML5 features in action.

This essential guide delivers essential knowledge for every web developer and designer:

  • Explains how to create real-time HTML5 applications that tap the full potential of modern browsers
  • Provides practical, real-world examples of HTML5 features in action
