    One thought on “What is HTML 5?”

    1. Free kindle ebook, so it s already a good deal I give it three stars because the book is average Not bad Not great If you want to learn the concepts behind HTML 5, this is a good book to read It s short To the point I want to give it 4 stars, but that s a bit high 3.5 would be accurate This book doesn t get into the nitty gritty coding and programming, but you do need to have a knowledge of coding to understand the book A handful of good quotes from the book The winners in an HTML5 world are th [...]

    2. Very short and generic Much of an article in a general audience magazine than an actual book It should be looked at as an initial primer to HTML5 rather than a learning experience You would do better with other books if you want to learn or learn about HTML5.

    3. Cursory, however, informativeFor those uninitiated or less experienced with markup, this acts as a good entry point For those following HTML5 since the formative spec years, there s not much new here My compliments to the author, however, as the content was found to be quite agreeable to my personal bias on the future of the web.

    4. Nothing useful.Too short for calling it a book I did not find it useful There is no must for free content to be useless.

    5. Nothing technical I was looking for something with a bit information and a bit less opinion Will need to find another source Perhaps a different media type.

    6. This was a freebie Kindle book that I read via my smartphone I really wouldn t call it a book so much as an essay Anyway, this was a little over my head After finishing this book, I m not entirely sure I understand what HTML5 is I have some vague concept of how it works it focuses not so much on web pages as creating an interconnected environment that web developers particularly programmers can develop applications that can cause all these different applications to play nice It is also some kind [...]

    7. This short e book contains a top down view of HTML5 Often technical books, blogs, articles, and documentation focuses on features, techniques, and syntax This book focused on the entire web as a petri dish of technological activity Design and architectural considerations were given less to how to develop with HTML5, and about how and why HTML5 was developed Some unique features were discussed, such as canvas and multimedia Although these features were explained from a strategic vantage point, [...]

    8. I don t think this should be advertised and sold on as a book It s really just a lengthy essay introducing the reader to HTML5 It is moderately well written, interesting, and as informative as a brochure The author, Brett McLaughlin, just touches on the features of the language and what is new to the development surrounding it I do recommend that you have a background in web development if you want to understand the references made in this essay.

    9. This book is a short read, and free, so I don t have any complaints But after reading the other reviews, I do realize it is targeted to a specific audience I think the people that will get the most benefit from this book are those who are familiar with history of HTML and have little prior knowledge of HTML5 If you are familiar with the drawbacks and shortcomings of older HTML versions, especially band aid solutions, this synopsis of what HTML5 can do is very motivating.

    10. My Review is probably not fair to the book It would be a great introduction if I was non technical and looking in from the outside.However as someone who just wanted to get a technical introduction, I felt it was lacking I glossed over the last parts of the book just to have it crossed off my list If you are looking for a super short almost blog introduction, this could be the one It was very cheap on so it was value for moneyjust not value for what I wanted.

    11. I really enjoyed this It was just what I needed I knew HTML5 was critical for web accessibility and designing programs for mobile devices, but I didn t know much than that This put it in the context of the evolution of HTML over time, the long term vision, and useful ways to use it, as well as suggestions for best practices and what not to do With the addition or with and humor, it was a light easy read.

    12. This was a free kindle book that I would describe as a white paper If you don t know anything about HTML5 and are looking for a quick overview, I d recommend this However, it doesn t go into a lot of details and you ll be looking for something else to follow it up with.

    13. This is a short book that is essentially a sales pitch for HTML5 and provides a good overview for somebody that is wanting a high level overview of what HTML5 is about, but not detail as to how to do anything It focuses on the what not the how.

    14. Even though this book was free on Kindle, I downloaded it hoping to gain insight into HTMLL5 and was very disappointed Since then, I have learned from free articles on the Internet than I gained from my time reading this book I agree with other reviewers that it is of an essay.

    15. Very short read Didn t help me get any closer to doing and coding, but is a good primer to get me in the right mindset when thinking about HTML5 I don t think I would recommend this book to anyone.

    16. As others have stated, this was a free Kindle ebook, so I downloaded it It was an overview of HTML5 and focused a lot on semantic markups It was okay, but I feel I have read interesting articles on HTML5, than what was in this ebook article.

    17. I ve referenced this short guide a couple times It s kind of a nice introduction to what HTML5 is But it probably will get dated fairly fast, and I m sure I won t reference it again after I ve used HTML5 for awhile.Two stars.

    18. Now everybody seems to use HTML5, but nobody seems to know what it is This book explains and defines what HTML5 is all about.

    19. Like unfinishedOnly some concepts without detailed info.You can only know some simple idea of Html5.Not recommended for serious study.

    20. A nice and short read to introduce differences between legacy HTML standards and new one HTML 5 Nice catch up.

    21. Good book This is really a good book for the starters the elements are explained precisely It helped me to quickly go through the topics when I required.

    22. As someone interested purely at a surface level, found this useful occasionally dry, occasionally unspecific.
