    Eric Freeman is described by Head First series co-creator Kathy Sierra as “one of those rare individuals fluent in the language, practice, and culture of multiple domains from hipster hacker, to corporate VP, engineer, think tank." Professionally, Eric recently ended nearly a decade as a media company executive, having held the position ofCTO of Disney Online & Disney.com at The Walt Disney Company. Eric is now devoting his time to WickedlySmart.com and lives with his wife and young daughter on Bainbridge Island. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Yale University.

    Elisabeth Robson is co-founder of Wickedly Smart, an education company devoted to helping customers gain mastery in web technologies. She’s co-author of two bestselling books, Head First Design Patterns and Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML.

    HTML has been on a wild ride. Sure, HTML started as a mere markup language, but more recently HTML’s put on some major muscle. Now we’ve got a language tuned for building web applications with Web storage, 2D drawing, offline support, sockets and threads, and more. And to speak this language you’ve got to go beyond HTML5 markup and into the world of the DOM, events, and JavaScript APIs.

    Now you probably already know all about HTML markup (otherwise known as structure) and you know all aboutCSS style (presentation), but what you’ve been missing is JavaScript (behavior). If all you know about are structure and presentation, you can create some great looking pages, but they’re still just pages. When you add behavior with JavaScript, you can create an interactive experience; even better, you can create full blown web applications.

    Head First HTML5 Programming is your ultimate tour guide to creating web applications with HTML5 and JavaScript, and we give you everything you need to know to build them, including: how to add interactivity to your pages, how to communicate with the world of Web services, and how to use the great new APIs being developed for HTML5.

    Here are just some of the things you’ll learn in Head First HTML5 Programing:

    • Learn how to make your pages truly interactive by using the power of the DOM.
    • Finally understand how JavaScript works and take yourself from novice to well-informed in just a few chapters.
    • Learn how JavaScript APIs fit into the HTML5 ecosystem, and how to use any API in your web pages.
    • Use the Geolocation API to know where your users are.
    • Bring out your inner artist with Canvas, HTML5’s new 2D drawing surface.
    • Go beyond just plugging a video into your pages, and create custom video experiences.
    • Learn the secret to grabbing five megabytes of storage in every user’s browser.
    • Improve your page’s responsiveness and performance with Web workers.
    • And much more.
