Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. last week released its "Creating Mobile Apps with HTML5 Tutorial," an intermediate course teaching new elements of HTML5 that support key features in web apps for mobile browsers, such as using local storage, geolocation, and camera interaction.
HTML is the markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the web. The latest version, HTML5, provides a number of improvements in its ability to incorporate multimedia and improve consistency between devices and browser sizes.
Infinite Skills' "Creating Mobile Apps with HTML5 Tutorial," is designed to help both new and experienced developers begin including these enhancements in their web apps, and learn best practices to avoid repetitive and unnecessary code.
Course author Jason Gonzalez is a user interface developer and freelance web designer and app developer. With a background in education, Gonzalez has developed web apps for schools and universities, as well as for scientific and commercial companies. His expertise is in building front-end applications using Bootstrap, Ruby on Rails, and other leading-edge frameworks.
Here, Gonzalez focuses on a select group of HTML5 features, introducing users to some well-supported features integral to most web apps, and other leading-edge features currently supported by only a few browsers.
Students will begin by building a wireframe for a basic application and constructing a basic layout. Gonzalez then demonstrates how to configure an app to interact with local storage, and use handlebars to create templates.
Other chapters demonstrate how to embed camera support in a web app, how to detect and display network status, add geolocation, and more.
"My goal is to give you some of the building blocks to build your own apps," Gonzalez says.
"The key things are how to use modern front end frameworks and libraries to build fast
and avoid repetitive work."
