HTML5 & CSS3 Training

HTML5 is the latest version of the Web’s favourite markup language, HTML.
HTML5 is intended to make web sites behave more like conventional desktop applications, incorporating video, complex interactions and data as well as greater compatibility with mobile devices.
By becoming adept at HTML5 you will be building websites that work on PC, Mac, iPhone, Android, Firefox, Chrome, the iPad, and any other device or browser you can think of.

Love it or hate it, it would seem that all roads on the web development landscape are leading to HTML5.

On this HTML5 course you willl start by getting your hands dirty and jumping right into HTML5 code. You will learn about the new HTML5 structural, semantic, and form tags, how to use Canvas to create drawings, how to work with HTML5 audio and video, the new methods for storing variables client-side, How to style your HTML5 pages with CSS3 and how to build applications that work offline. You will also learn about the current state of browser support for HTML5.

To keep up to date and continue with learning afterwards you will be granted access to our virtual learning area where our tutor provides additional resources, exercises and support.

Web Designers and Developers who need to get up to speed with the powerful new features in HTML5 in order to create rich interfaces and functionality in their web and mobile apps.

It's required that students are comfortable using a mouse, opening/ saving files and with the general operation of computers.

Experience of programming in any other type of language, i.e.HTML, Java, Javascript, C/C++, Visual Basic, etc is desirable.
