Udemy - Learn HTML5 from scratch

I've heard about HTML5 - but didn't really know what it was. So this sounded like a good course to find out.

Its fairly gentle as courses go, and all parts are explained well with all code written from scratch in front of you. It shows you how to do regular HTML first, before moving onto some of the advanced features.

So it starts with basic HTML together with inline styles, tables and input actions.

Then it moves onto CSS files and tailoring the result to look like what is required. It's quite fun to see the website evolving in front of you as you tweak padding, colors and so on.

Then it's on to HMTL5 new things. New tags, new form elements and so on. This is followed by graphics, video, geolocation, SVG graphics, mobile apps, caching and storage extensions. 

Its a very good overview, but you obviously need to know quite a lot of javascript (which isn't explicitly covered) to make good use of some of the new features.

No title could ever really cover everything but one of the biggest issue today is that to sell a course or get people intrested many times you got to "overpack" and over simplify the process for a course to work/sell.

i actually wrote a blog post about this topic i hope you check it out:

by the way scares me to think about you reviewing my course but i'm up for the challange if your up for reviewing our total starter course - it has no prerequisites and isn't as holistic as the title you covered but a easy getting started with HTML - it doesn't cover all of HTML (its our 1st out of 11 segments).

would love to hear what you think about it.

Thanks - I'd like to take it - it does sound interesting. I'll add it to my (increasingly long) list!
