In the year 2012, so many awesome articles, tools and resources were released; and so much passion, time and energy was invested in establishing standards and finalizing new APIs.
So for those who think HTML5 won’t be ready until, say 2050… I say “Bah, humbug!”.
Actually that phrase takes me back to the year 2006, and it belongs to a thought leader, whom you (have to) know — sometimes I think that I’ve a photographic memory of some sort
Anyways, W3C has officially announced that HTML5 is done and HTML5.1 is on the agenda. And browser vendors are working aggressively hard to implement as many of the HTML5 features as they can.
I don’t care if some “Sugar Mountain” utters that HTML5 is not good enough to be used in a mobile application — Bah, humbug!
Bottom line of my message was that acing your job interview like a Samurai was only part of the equation. Your aim should be to be “great” at what you do (not to be a great “virtual realitiy” game (i.e. interviews) player, instead).
And it’s not only a message for the book’s audience, but also a reminder for everyone who want to be ahead of the competition. So I have an urge for repeating myself here:
Yes everything is evolving rapidly. And during all this hassle, my aim is to come up with a “time-independent” book, that won’t get “rusted“. And to reach this aim, I…
- Try to provide enough supporting material to establish firm grounds to stand when an interviewer asks you a tricky question;
- Try to “incept” a thirst to read an learn more in the reader (and serve this thirst by providing further reading material which is really hard to gather with a naive google search – have I told you that I have a good memory ?).
Yet I have been (and I will be) thoroughly enjoying writing the book. To be honest, I even use the material for my personal reference. And it’s “awesome” to refer to something you’ve written in your daily work.
I hope the readers of the book are enjoying their read too.
So I owe a big thank you to you, who help me make an impact.
Currently I’m working on the “Patterns” section of the book, and I believe that section will be ready by the end of January, 2013.
Until then, have a good one and enjoy the festive season!
