HTML5 Training for Web Developers

ITworld has partnered with Webucator, a provider of customized, instructor-led training courses, to provide an exclusive opportunity to ITworld readers. From now until October 31, 2011, readers can enter a drawing for a chance to attend HTML5 Training for Web Developers.

In this HTML5 training class, you'll start by getting your hands dirty and jumping right into HTML5 code. You'll learn about the new HTML5 structural, semantic, and form tags, how to use Canvas to create drawings natively in the browser, how to work with HTML5 audio and video, the new methods for storing variables client-side, and how you build applications that work offline. Along the way, you'll learn about the current state of browser support for HTML5 and the theory behind all the changes that have been made.

If you are new to HTML, you should take the Introduction to HTML class first. Everything covered in that course is relevant to HTML5 and is prerequisite knowledge for this class.
