CHICAGO — Building Web Applications with HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript: An Introduction to HTML5, presented by Jason Clark of Montana State University Library, is now available, announced the Library Information Technology Association (LITA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).

Geolocation, native video, offline storage, semantic markup elements, responsive Web design, canvas elements, voice input, drag and drop, opacity, gradients… HTML5 (a generic term which includes new HTML tags, enhanced CSS styles/behaviors, and new Javascript APIs) has been released and is changing the way Web developers work. With wide support in mobile browsers and the latest browser releases from Google and Firefox, HTML5 is poised to be the technology that will help build the next version of the Web.
 
Building Web Applications with HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript: An Introduction to HTML5 will consist of four live lectures held from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. CST on Nov. 9, 12, 13 and 15,  with additional self-paced modules in Moodle. Participants will examine the trends and enhancements that HTML5,  CSS3 and the new Javascript APIs enable, talk through the specifics of implementation and work through building a prototype HTML5 application.
