HTML5 and CSS3 were some of the most used terms in web design community last year and it seems that the trend will keep in the next year. As you probably know, this byname practically describes the base of the next best practices in creating websites. Even if, the skeptical/conservator ones considered that the previous versions were still OK, the Internet must evolve and clearly, new ideas and techniques must be created. The need for more interactivity, the easiness of accessing websites and the wish to bring in our lives the new web 3.0. are imperatives that simply determinate the improving of the previous versions of HTML and CSS.
On the other hand, the mobile devices bring a new approach for coding websites. The multitude of displays is a real problem but there are many other aspects that need a new strategy in order to create very accessible websites no matter which terminals are used. The term “responsive design” is designated to represent all these techniques to make websites accessible for all devices and quite probably will share the same importance with HTML5 and CSS3.
Under these circumstances it is easy to understand that the next few years will represent a cornerstone for design and development. A coder that ignores HTML5 & CSS3 and responsive design is one that simply doesn’t want to exist, therefore the study of these is mandatory. The great news is that these aren’t totally new, in fact there are many improvements of the old versions and just few 100% novelties.
The web designers are always busy and the time spend to search for the latest news about the new versions may be saved by bookmarking this post because here are added the best online resource in this field. Definitely, a complete designer must seek for the books of experts or listen to various podcasts but clearly, this post is very useful. Much more, not to waste much time, there are only ten sources, the very good ones, but it doesn’t mean that there aren’t other great online presences deserving to check for staying updated on the Internet.
Without practice, all the lectures are in vain so there remains the old advice, universal valuable: practice is gold!
HTML is merely evolving and be sure, HTML5 won’t be the last version or the perfect one. The web designers will merely try to offer new approaches and the websites will be more and more interesting, interactive and simple to use. The best prove to support this affirmation is the fact that there is no official fifth version, it’s a draft that may be improved by anyone. Anyone who wants to know the latest news about HTML5 must visit the above address. There, you can find the official draft. It’s complete and offers a good vision but it’s pretty difficult to read and somehow the website isn’t very attractive.
