I worked very hard on the Learning Kit version of the book Sams Teach Yourself HTML5 for Mobile Application Development in 24 Hours to add videos as well as interactive tests and practice. But it still might seem overwhelming to buy a book like that. I can tell you that it’s a great book, but I’m biased (after all, I wrote it!). 🙂
But don’t just take my word for it. Marc Carson of Marc Carson Web Design read it and wrote a great review. Here are some of my favorite parts:
“Those who have used HTML in the past, but who are new to HTML5 will probably enjoy this Learning Kit. For example, it includes materials like a walkthrough video that shows how to quickly convert old-style HTML to HTML5. This was an unexpected but helpful addition to the text.”
“The inclusion of information on fonts and typography in HTML5, audio and video elements, HTML5 forms, microformats, canvas, WebSockets, geolocation, and so on will make for fascinating reading to those who are new to HTML5.”
“I enjoyed using the new Learning Kit format and found that it far surpasses the standard ebook (or paper book) approach. ”
“The author explained concepts very well within the videos, and has a voice that is very easy to listen to.”
