Master web app development with hands-on practice and video demonstration

HTML5, JavaScript, and jQuery 24-Hour Trainer shows you how to build real-world HTML5 apps — both web-based and mobile — in combination with JavaScript, jQuery, and CSS/CSS3. You'll learn progressively more advanced skills as you work through the series of hands-on video lessons. Exercises and screencasts walk you step-by-step through the process of building web applications, and give you the opportunity to experiment and extend the examples to create your own working web app. You'll gain a solid understanding of the fundamental technologies, and develop a skillset that fully exploits the functionality of web development tools.

Although HTML5 is at the forefront of web development, it exists within an ecosystem that also includes CSS/CSS3, JavaScript, and JavaScript libraries like jQuery. Building robust, functional web applications requires a clear understanding of these technologies, and more importantly, the manner in which they fit together. This is your step-by-step guide to building web apps, with a hands-on approach that helps you learn by doing.

  • Master the fundamentals of HTML and HTML5

  • Integrate offline data storage, background processes, and other APIs
