HTML5 Quick Start Web Application

HTML5 Quick Start

I was learning HTML5 features since December. While going through it, I was playing around making a sample web application fully HTML5 enabled – kind of self learning kit that would give a basic knowledge to anyone who goes through it. Plan was to publish it as an article so that others can learn quickly and have basic features at one place. One can play around with the feature implementation straight away post download.

It took me some time to write the article as it covered good number of features. I finished working on it and have published it today on CodeProject: HTML5 Quick Start Web Application

One can have a look at it there and provide feedback.
