About this Book


This book was written for professional .NET developers primarily focused on C# and ASP.NET. While it’s useful for other professionals, the focus has been on developing server-side code in C# and ASP.NET MVC, with as little overhead as possible.

Our target reader is a professional who has been placed in the role of developer on a project that is already on an HTML5 and ASP.NET MVC platform or is being transitioned to this platform. Emphasis is placed on as many stable parts of the HTML5 specification as possible, so that while the developer learns effective use of JavaScript, he or she is also able to learn to use these very powerful APIs.

Please note that while the JavaScript and HTML5 techniques you learn in these pages are useful for Windows 8 development, this book does not claim to be a Windows 8 development reference.

How the book is organized

This book is divided into two parts. The first part, consisting of chapters 1 and 2, will give you a general understanding of what HTML5 is and how it can interact with server components using JavaScript and ASP.NET MVC. Chapter 2 focuses on markup and how semantics play a role in HTML5 web application development.
