Review

"HTML5- und JavaScript-Einsteiger finden hier einen angenehm unaufgeregten Erklärband, kein Nachschlagewerk, und durch die Grundlagenarbeit ganz nebenbei auch noch einen Crashkurs in JavaScript, der ¿ mit weiteren Lernmaterialien ergänzt ¿ die eigenen HTML5-Schritte auf ein solides Fundament stellt." - tobiaskut.de, April 2012
