What Course Participants are Saying

Well this course was exactly what I needed, a real-world exploration of HTML5. The resources such as Dive Into HTML5 and helped out a lot. I needed something to cut through all of the noise out there about HTML5. I feel much more confident now that I can outline an html5 page and embed audio and video in the best way currently possible. Local Storage is just awesome, much better than cookies, although hackers will probably ruin this feature with their exploits.

I could go on and on about what I learned, but I think it’s apparent from my html5 page that I learned a lot and can start to use these features (some with fallbacks) today.
