An increasing number of companies are using HTML5 to develop web and mobile applications. This course will acquaint you with the new standard of HTML. Through a combination of hands-on exercises and lectures, you will explore the evolution of HTML, XHTML and HTML5, and learn about the many new features available in HTML5.

The course de-mystifies HTML5 and all of its long-awaited and powerful features.
