About the Author

Adam McDaniel has been designing, developing, modifying, and maintaining computer programs of one language or another since 1993, and he has been an active proponent of HTML since being introduced to the language in 1994.
Since that time, Adam has led a team of developers implementing an eCommerce fulfillment engine for a virtual shopping mall, designed hundreds of corporate websites, and developed front-end HTML and back-end CGI infrastructure for CADVision, at the time one of the largest ISPs in Western Canada. In 2001, Adam moved into the software security sector, working for Hitachi ID Systems for over eight years, designing and implementing software security recommendations for various Fortune 500 companies across the United States and Europe. Soon afterwards, based on his past CGI experience, Adam wrote his first book, Perl and Apache: Your visual blueprint to developing dynamic Web content. Most recently, Adam rejoined the HTML world as the lead OS architect for Jolicloud, a Paris-based company, contributing to its HTML5 Linux operating system.
As Adam is always interested in new technologies and architectures, his other development credits include an open-source offline HTML reader for the Palm OS platform, contributions to the Linux Kernel, and other utility and specialty programs. In 2006, Adam produced the Netbook Kernel software download and website, allowing users to download an optimized build of the Linux kernel, specific for the Ubuntu Linux distribution.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good bridge for those who know HTML 4 already March 21 2012
By Dafydd Crosby - Published on
I found this to be a pretty good introduction into HTML 5. Coming from an HTML 4 background, what I wanted to see was the practical benefits of 5, not just the flashy new Canvas functionality. This book delivered that, pointing out aspects of HTML 5 that I was unaware of, such as the application cache. Done in a step-by-step manner, it was easy to see the necessary thought process to get the goods.

3.0 out of 5 stars review Aug. 29 2012
By anonymous - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The content was very helpful except the examples were far to small in print to read easily.
The book cover was curled back when I opened the packaging and continue to curl back with time.
There was no errata available and I discovered an error.

I found the content regarding HTML5 to be very helpful.
My problem was with the extremely small print used for the markup examples.
1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Textboook! Feb. 18 2013
By Robert J. Eckrich - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am taking a non-credit course on HTML5 at a community college. The instructor made this book a required text for the course. IT'S TERRIBLE. On the cover, the book indicates that there is a companion website that contains the examples of the code used in the book. It is nowhere to be found in the book! I had to bug the instructor to give us the URL (BTW, the URL is html5, and it won't work in IE9, only FireFox and Chrome)

I've worked as an editor in the past and I can tell that the author went back and forth editing pages and code in the book, without checking to see whether he was being accurate and/or consistent in his writing. He isn't, and the editors didn't catch any of the mistakes. He includes discussion about writing CSS and using certain new tags in early chapters, but that he doesn't discuss until much later in the book. When providing steps for guides on how to write code, the instructions and notes don't match up to the screen capture examples he is displaying.

If you're a teacher looking for a new textbook on HTML5 or are looking for a guide to teach yorself HTML5, I suggest looking elsewhere.
