Introduction to HTML 5

What You'll Learn

If you're a web developer interested in trying out the new features in HTML 5, this is a great way to jump in the pool with a lifeguard on duty. This workshop will give you an overview of HTML 5's exciting new elements and a handful of new tools to enhance your existing sites.

By diving in and out of code samples, we'll take a look at each of the major new features in HTML 5 and discuss how they'll influence web design, especially with media embedding, forms, and graphics.

This workshop will cover:

  • New HTML 5 elements and what they're for
  • Incorporating video and audio with new standard media tags
  • New form elements and input type attributes
  • Browser-generated vector graphics with the Canvas element
  • Structural elements to replace < div>

Who Should Take This

Web designers with a solid grasp of HTML and CSS who want to begin incorporating HTML 5 features into their sites.
