Although HTML5 has a ton of bells and whistles, it's very much an integral part of the coming Web, and not everything about it is flashy and sexy. HTML5 actually offers a lot in terms of enhancing your web forms. Further, you can now build applications that function when your users aren't connected to a network. This Breakdown teaches you how to build 21st century forms: they'll validate your data, respond to data type mistakes, and even keep working when the WiFi goes down.

The experts in the O'Reilly Breakdown live video series not only break down the concepts of difficult and complex subjects, they also demonstrate practical implementation and use. Each episode features an experienced programmer, developer, or software designer working on real-world challenges, ranging from iPad user interface design and multi-tasking on Android phones to caching in cloud-based applications.
