lack of a good tittle: HTML5, your Portable apps, and what programing languages do you use.

Curiosity killed the cat, Its a good thing I'm not a cat because I'm curios Blum .

Questions:
Have you done any Html5 coding? How do you like Html5?

How many Portable Apps have you made? How many are you working on?

What programing languages do you use? What is your favorite programing language?

My Answers:
I have Smile I'm building my home page with it. I like it, it is more organized, no more having to tag each div Blum .

I have made one so far. I'm currently working on one, but I plan to work on two more.

I'm not much of a programmer but I'm learning Smile . My favorite is web programing language would be PHP, and the normal programing language would be ahk.

Thanks for taking the time to answer Smile

I was not asking on how to

I was not asking on how to make a portable app. I was wondering how many app other people have made portable. And what programing languages other programmers use, if the work on something other than portable app launchers.

At first when HTML5 was

At first when HTML5 was released, the first thing I said was, NO!!! I have to RELEARN HTML!!!!

But it ended up to be fun Smile
It was like revisiting my child hood days (Or a year ago, not that long :P)

I'd have to say my favorite has been PHP, though I still haven't completely finished learning it (all that's left is SQL). Smile

HTML5 is not been

HTML5 is not been released...its current in Last Call. It probably will be finalized sometime about 2014.

Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.

CSS 2.1 is still not approved...

CSS 2.1 never got to be approved, it is only a "Candidate Recommendation", nor some fixes to HTML 4, but that never stopped users from using it. The sooner everybody starts using HTML 5 the faster it will be done!

Blue is everything.

Re:

agdurretteHave you done any Html5 coding? How do you like Html5?

Haven't used it yet; I'm still learning "regular" HTML.

agdurretteHow many Portable Apps have you made? How many are you working on?

Depends on if you count KidSafe or not, since I created that from scratch instead of portabilizing an existing app.
So far, I've portabilized TopOCR, MWSnap, Photofiltre, and now Iron, so I guess the answer to this one is 4 or 5, depending on how you count KidSafe.

agdurretteWhat programing languages do you use? What is your favorite programing language?

I know VB6, REALbasic, Java, Flash, HTML, and enough CSS to get by; I've started learning C++, but have barely gotten past the "Hello world" stage. I also know a bit of AHK and a bit of NSIS.
My favorite programming language, by far, is REALbasic. It's nicely object-oriented and event-driven, making "clean" coding easy; it's also cross-platform, which is a huge bonus. Add in a RAD IDE and an easy-to-learn BASIC dialect, and you've got one lean, mean language. Smile

What do you mean learning

What do you mean learning regular HTML?

HTML5 is regular HTML. It isn't a new language, it's just an update on web standards. It's pointless to learn HTML4 and learn HTML5 later, it's the same language with new commands and attributes. Biggrin

Meh

I know it's the same language, but I'm learning something earlier, probably HTML 4 or maybe even HTML 3.
My school-provided textbook is Copyright 2003, so... yeah.
(The textbook has screenshots from Mac OS Classic, if you can believe that)
It's a good, informative textbook, just 6 years behind.

Read online material.

I am sorry to hear that. Use current references that are online.

If you want to learn html,

If you want to learn html, check this out http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp , it has helped me out a bunch.

I've already got a fair amount of HTML under my belt (got 18 of 20 questions correct on the W3Schools HTML test), but I don't know HTML5 yet.
Thanks for the link! I'll see if I can grab a couple of hours to go over it later today or tomorrow.

html5 has most of the old

html5 has most of the old tags, some have been taken out because they were useless or were replaced with other tags. And more tags have been added so your code will be more organized.

*sigh* Time to redesign my

*sigh*
Time to redesign my pages, I think. Time to get a much more thorough grasp of CSS, too, since the HTML trend seems to be "replace tags with CSS attributes".
What new tags are there, though?
EDIT: nvm, I found a nice reference here.
EDIT 2: Anybody care to visualize the malware possibilities here? <video>, <canvas>, <figure>, <source> - somebody is going to figure out how to take full advantage of them, just like people have already figured out how to take advantage of QuickTime, WMP, and all the other multimedia players out there to spread malware.
I have an idea these news tags are going to give security guys big fat headaches.

EDIT 3: wow, they dumped a lot! No more <s>, no more <frame> or <frameset>, no more <applet>! I wonder how HTML4 pages are going to look in HTML5 browsers.

I don't think you need to

I don't think you need to worry about upgrading any thing yet. Html5 is not yet supported by all browsers *cough-ie-cough*.

www.w3schools.com is the best place around Smile

Not surprised by IE; MS has always been the last to support anything and the first to break it. Firefox supports HTML5, though, and I believe Chrome does too.

Yep, I agree. I'm working through their JavaScript tutorials right now, as a matter of fact. Smile

I'm pretty sure that's because w3schools is managed by the w3 consortium?

Nope

Otherwise they wouldn't have revamped the site a couple years back.
