HTML5 is one of the hot web technologies and is widely gaining acceptance across mobile and web. HTML5 was designed to do virtually anything you want to do online without having to download browser plugins or other software. Want to create animations? Embed music and movies? Build advanced applications that run in your browser? You can with HTML5.
What is HTML5?
HTML5 is the newest version of HTML. The term refers to two things. One is the updated HTML language itself, which has new elements and attributes. The second is the larger set of technologies that work with this new version of HTML — like a new video format — and enable you to build more complex and powerful websites and apps.
To understand how HTML has evolved over the years, let’s look at the differences between HTML and HTML5.
HTML5 was designed with major objectives, including:
Making code easier to read for users and screen readers
Promoting design responsiveness and consistency across browsers
Supporting multimedia without the need for Flash or other plugins
Each of these objectives informed the changes in this new version of HTML. Let’s focus on seven of those changes below. HTML5 introduced several new semantically meaningful tags. These include <section>, <header>, <footer> <nav>, <mark>, <figure>, <aside> <figcaption>, <data>, <time>, <output>, <progress>, <meter> and <main>. These make it easier to write cleaner code that clearly delineates style from content, which is particularly important to users with assistive technologies like screen readers.
In our course you get a complete resource which can get you started on application development for HTML5. In our course you work on actual examples and go through important concepts required for through knowledge. In our course you will start with basic HTML tags. We do not assume any prior knowledge so we go through the concepts from the beginner’s point of view. This course creates easy to grasp examples for each of the concepts and by the end of it you will be able to understand the complete picture rather than just bits and pieces of the technology.
