  1. Wow, Jennifer, this is an exciting giveaway! Congratulations on your book – I know it’s a lot of hard work. Looking forward to reading the free chapter.

  2. I would love to read your new book! (I’d even re-read Hour 10.) I’m very interested in what code is being deprecated and how to keep up with the new standards. My husband and I have been tossing around creating mobile apps, so I’m really curious to see how HTML5 helps promote programming for this ever-gaining technology.

  3. How exciting to find a book as simple as this one. I already subscribe to most of your newsletters, if not all. I am currently trying to learn HTML, and I find your information to be very straightforward and helpful!

    Thank you!

  4. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from About.com Web Design – I’m sure this book is going to rock! Looks like a lot of fun. Now if I can just find that 24 hours to do it!

    Thanks, Jennifer.

  5. Jennifer, I started following you about 7 years ago when I decided it was time I learned CSS, and update my HTML skills. Now that I have read so much from you and others about HTML5, it’s time I knuckle down and learn it!

  6. I just finished the chapter ten pdf and I am excited to learn more. I have used Sam’s Teach Yourself in 24 Hrs books before and the format is fantastic. Jennifer, I like your easy to follow, streight to the point style. Thanks!

  7. That’s great!.. I’m new to HTML5. I think this book will help me to have a great experience over the same.

    Thanks Jennifer…

  8. How timely! I am trying to get my daughters interested in web programming and have recently proposed a cooperative project of creating our very own HTML 5 game. It’s the first time they’ve been stoked about the idea of creating ( both are avid gamers). While I know quite a bit about HTML CSS and am taking a course in JavaScript, I know nothing about using canvas in HTML 5. this book would go a long way in introducing us to it!

  9. I love these books, and really need to get my head wrapped around HTML 5. Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. I would like to get your book as I am new to all this but am interested In checking this out as a career tool! thanks!

  11. That’s a well written chapter !
    Every feature is presented thoroughly, yet in a way it makes it easy to it grasp at once.

    I want the whole book ! 😀

  12. Very nice chapter! I’ve tried a few times to understand and it never took hold. Your explanation, especially starting without assuming the reader already knows something about it, was great. Looking forward to reading the whole book… For FREE! 🙂

  13. Would absolutely LOVE a copy of your book! I need to re-learn HTML (or at least a big update). I got away from it when I retired, but I am now volunteering with an animal rescue group and could do great things 🙂 with an updated understanding of HTML. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

  14. I’m a web student currently upset with my schools web program. I’m spending money for nothing. Majority of my learning comes from online resources instead of the school. Sometimes it’s hard to find reputable and knowledgeable sources, but you are definitely one in my opinion. Keep doing what you do, thanks a bunch!

  15. Getting up to speed after several years away from web development. From the sample, it looks like this book will be a good resource.

  16. As a photographer, you need an “and”. Something that complements photography that helps earn enough to live on. Web design is a great “and” to have, and HTML 5 is the future compatible of web design and Sams are a great way to learn it.

  17. You and Sam’s do a great job making the most complicated things easy to understand! I need to make my sites mobile and iOS friendly and HTML5 is the way to do it.

    Hour 10 rocked, and I’m really looking forward to reading the entire book and learning how to get my web sites on smartphones and iPads around the world. Thanks Jennifer!

  18. Congrats on your book! I’ve been working on improving my mobile design and code, and your book will be just the ticket.

  19. Your good work had given me the courage to have more interest in web designing which i tought it to be a difficult task initially. But with your simple and strieght to the point explanation, i hope to win a copy of your give away book and to be one of the good web designers. I enjoy reading your post on the net. You are a good teacher, keep it up please and God bless you Jennifer.

  20. Wow! I like the chapter I’ve read. It’s easy to follow. I’m in a Graphic Communications program at my Community College. I will be doing more web design classes also. I know that I will need HTML 5 soon and your book would be a great help! I feel that as a good Graphic Designer I will need to know all that I can about web programming.

  21. I would like this book to enhance my graphic design education. I’m a college student and I think it would be a great addition. =-)

  22. Hi,
    I am a trained graphic designer and a self taught Web designer. At the moment I am very good with Dreamweaver – wether using frames, tables or AP DIVs. What I am really struggling with is HTML or basically code, which I am pulling all the stops to learn as I know it is vital. Your book will be a big boost to my skills

  23. I’ve been subscribed to your Desktop Publishing tips and classes for more than a few years now & still look forward to each email I get. I can’t wait to read your book, having it all in one will be a invaluable resource.

  24. When I stuck with some stuffs, your writings and your root cause knowledge helped me to sort out those. Looking forward for your nice tips and all the very best.

  25. I have been planning to have my own design website to put all my photography works. Your coming book certainly will help to get the web realized ..looking forward to see them soon.

  26. Jennifer,
    I completely rewrote the standupworld site after having found a few of your CSS tricks (especially DIV alignment and floating everything) on about.com.
    I would be very interested in your HTML5 book as I find your way of explaining things suits me perfectly. Clear, to the point, understandable and demonstrated with examples.
    Thank you for helping your average guy like me to build better sites.

    Regards,
    Stuart

  27. I teach Wep Page Design to juniors and seniors in a high school. These students elect to take my class and they absolutely LOVE coding. I have been trying to motivate myself this summer to update my lessons to include HTML 5 and your book is the perfect venue?

    Great work!
