The “next big thing” in web development HTML5 has many great features and the first wave of education material has arrived. There are almost a dozen books, but only one video so far, Tantek Çelik’s 2 and a half hour video.
I recently viewed it and it was good but not great. Almost the first 30 minutes is a discussion on the history of web development, HTML and XHTML. Also, most of the video is of Tantek sitting behind his desk talking to the camera. I would much rather see the code he is talking about or even the points he is making in slideshow format.
A great point about this video is that it comes with a 95 page pdf book outlining all the main points for HTML5. There is also a 40 page booklet attached to the DVD.
Overall, I give the video 7.5/10. It is not too expensive, so if you have £20-30 pounds to spare, it can be an easy way to learn about HTML5 without breaking the bank.
