A decade ago, Ajax took the Web out of childhood, and now HTML5 and JavaScript are moving the Web into full adulthood. This insightful overview provides striking examples of how these technologies have teamed up to give the Web a truly open platform.

Author Kyle Simpson (HTML5 Cookbook) shows you how JavaScript unlocks the power of all of the new functionality in HTML5, giving web applications the capabilities developers have wanted for years. These technologies now provide the raw tools you need in the presentation layer to replace everything you used to do with Flash.

You’ll discover how:
HTML5 builds natively into the web platform things we find most commonly useful, such as audio, video, and drawingThe Canvas element is changing graphic animations, games, audio visualization, charting, and video effectsGeolocation has spawned “geofencing” and augmented realityWeb Workers allows calculations to be performed in the background, rather than compete with the UIWeb Sockets is enabling realtime communication for chat, live tech support, multi-user collaboration, and gamingMobile device APIs will give web apps direct access the phone’s camera, vibration, and other capabilities
