Many websites are powered by content management systems and other similar ready made setups. These are nice to get you going, but you might have a desire to change things around, or even try some coding on your own. Simply HTML5 can help you understand what goes on behind the scenes of making websites.
This book is not aimed at teaching you everything there is to HTML5, or the different programming languages, but it provides a foundation that you can build on. It is pretty simple to understand, though there a few areas that I would have liked to have had a little more information. I can still see this as being a good quick reference guide.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
