HTML 5 Foundations with Matt West (Podcast)

Summary: Matt West, author of HTML 5 Foundations, and I discuss his new book on the topic.


HTML5 is the new markup language of the Internet and the only way you'll get active content on Apple devices. Matt West explains HTML5, how his book is organized and how it can help you learn to develop for mobile and standard devices. 

HTML5 Foundations

Matt West (@MattAntWest) is the founder of Developer City, where he builds websites for firms around the world. Matt is a hybrid, dealing with both the design and the development of the website projects he works on. Working on open source projects, Matt taught himself how to code and has since built everything from small business websites to advanced route optimizers.

In the book, Matt instructs you on how to:

  • Create page templates and web pages
  • Structure a website
  • Format text
  • Embed audio and video
  • Use microdata
  • Enhance your site with HTML5 and Javascript
  • Use CSS
  • Store data
  • Use geolocation

HTML5 Foundations, a Treehouse book, is also available as an ebook.
