HTML 5 – As I Learn

Series – 1

Objective of this series

I have been listening to people saying that HTML 4 is replaced by HTML 5 and it’s a killer. Heard that it is about to kill Adobe Flash and Flex. Being a UI developer and an ActionScript developer at that, HTML 5 stood as a competing UI language. Hence, let me see what’s in HTML 5 and how good a killer is it.

From my previous knowledge of HTML, I gathered, learning HTML 5 will require a good understanding of

What is new in HTML 5?

How to use each new thing that came with HTML 5?

What old HTML things cannot be used any more?

and most importantly

What type of browser in-compatibility issues, may come up and how to manage them?

So, read some online tutorials, articles, code samples and got a lot confused. Therefore, the main objective of this series is to bring together all that I learn and in a manner that I can reference, at the time of actual development work.
