HTML5 is all the rage today. Learning HTML5 will ensure that your web applications will work across many different browsers. Of course, that is once all browsers support HTML5. But that day is coming sooner, rather than later. In this introductory set of webcasts you will learn the new HTML5 tags to help you build better websites. You will also learn new tips and tricks in CSS 3. Finally you will learn how to add some simple reusable styles to spice up your HTML5 websites.
Sessions (each session runs approximately 75 minutes):
Session 1: From Zero to HTML5 in 60 Minutes
Confused about how to move from your current technology such as WPF, Windows Forms, or Silverlight to HTML5? This seminar will focus on HTML5 for the business application programmer. Learn the new keywords and the new attributes that make HTML5 a great addition to your web applications. This session teaches you the basics of HTML5 focusing on form layout for business applications. You will learn how to use styles and attempt to make HTML5 generic across the widest possible collection of browsers that are out there. You will walk away with a set of samples that you can use to build your own HTML5 web applications.
Session 2: CSS for the HTML5 Developer
Want to make your HTML5 efficient and easy to maintain? Cascading Styles Sheets (CSS) are the answer. Many developers use an HTML Table structure to layout their data input pages. While this works it is not the most efficient, and not very flexible. Learn how to use CSS to build input pages that can change without modifying every page and every table in your HTML pages. Learn the new HTML5 CSS tags and how to create cross-browser support for your HTML5 pages.
Session 3: Tips to Spice up Your HTML5 Apps (Even if you are not a designer!)
Most programmers are not artists; but you do not to be in order for your HTML5 applications to look professional. Just a few little touches such as the appropriate styles, color gradients, pictures, animation and a few other UI design tips and your application will look great! This seminar will present you with a collection of tips that will spice up your desktop or web applications in no time at all. The best thing is you can do all of these in Visual Studio; no need to learn an artist’s tool such as PhotoShop or Expression Blend! You will be shown how to create a library of re-usable styles, colors, gradients, color palettes, descriptive buttons and many other techniques that will take your applications from drab to fab! You will walk away with a set of styles and resources that you can put to use in your applications immediately!
