HTML5 Technical Training Is Now Available!


Are you ready to start looking at HTML5 from a technical/support standpoint? Microsoft Learning has released the following course to market AND it is Microsoft Software Assurance Training Voucher eligible!

MS10953: HTML5-Programming – This three-day instructor-led course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to develop HTML5 web applications using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

Before attending, participants should:

  • Have three to six months of development experience in a professional environment.
  • Be familiar with the HTML document structure and associated terminology, but are not expected to be expert and do not need to have experience with HTML5.
  • Have one to three months experience with HTML and XML.
  • Have a general familiarity with the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE

Keep in mind that to support all features of HTML5 you need IE10 – but IE9 supports around 65% of HTML5 code.  Here is what is not supported:

  • Application Cache (offline)
  • Web Workers (threads in JavaScript)
  • HTML5 Forms (validation mechanism, CSS3 selectors)
  • JavaScript Strict Mode
  • ForeignObject (embed external content in SVG)
  • SMIL Animations (SVG animations)
  • File API
  • WebGL (3D)
  • CSS3 Transitions (for animations)
  • CSS3 Text Shadow
  • CSS3 Gradients
  • CSS3 Border Image
  • CSS3 Flex box model
  • ClassList APIs
  • FormData
  • HTML5 History API
  • Drag’n Drop from Desktop

Jeff Cargill, LRS Technical Development Instructor, says, “The course looks good. Best overview of JavaScript that I have seen. I’m looking forward to teaching this one.”
