Beginning Web Applications With HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript shows how to use the new web standards to create rich applications that go beyond what previous technologies allowed. By following the examples in the book, you will learn how to use these new standards in real-world applications, instead of just reading a dry reference manual. These real-life uses of the new HTML tags, WebSockets, and Canvas give you the foundation you'll need to build larger applications of your own. Learning how to apply the new standards will prepare you for the future of web development, regardless of what platform your users are on—desktop, tablet, or even smartphone. 

  • Follow examples using the new semantic structure, form validation, WebSockets, and client-side storage.
  • Learn how to make your applications shine with CSS3 and new multi-column and flexbox layouts.
  • Add interactivity to your applications using the Drag-and-Drop, Editing, and Canvas APIs.

Who this book is for

Beginning Web Applications with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript is for developers who just want to get things done.

This book is for people who want to learn how to use client-side WebStorage to save data offline, use WebSockets to create interactive and real-time applications, and create new page designs with CSS3 multi-column layouts. This book is for people who want to build applications for the future.
