Look inside

HTML5 for .NET Developers teaches professional software engineers how to integrate the latest HTML5 APIs and semantic markup into rich web applications using JavaScript, ASP.NET MVC, and WCF. Written from the .NET perspective, this book is full of practical applications and ways to connect the new web standards with your existing development practices

about the technology

A shift is underway for Microsoft developers--to build web applications you'll need to integrate HTML5 features like Canvas-based graphics and the new JavaScript-driven APIs with familiar technologies like ASP.NET MVC and WCF. This book is designed for you.

about the book

HTML5 for .NET Developers teaches you how to blend HTML5 with your current .NET tools and practices. You'll start with a quick overview of the new HTML5 features and the semantic markup model. Then, you'll systematically work through the JavaScript APIs as you learn to build single page web apps that look and work like desktop apps. Along the way, you'll get tips and learn techniques that will prepare you to build "metro-style" applications for Windows 8 and WP 8.
