Look, here’s an awesome, amazing HTML5 training video. It is one hour and twelve minutes long. For those of us needing to improve our HTML skills and get up to date on the newest version of HyperText Markup Language, this is an easy way to learn.
The video is by YouTube tutorial producer Derek Banas. Derek’s “about” page on YouTube says he will make tutorials on almost any geek topic, based on what you want to learn. Requests are welcome!

Why We Should Upgrade Our Webdesign Skills
Webdesigners must always be willing to upgrade their webdesign skills. It is not enough, in today’s webdesign market, to use HTML4 or any other outdated methods. As ethical business people, we must strive to provide the best possible service to our clients whether they’re aware of new versions or not.
Our clients deserve only the best. How fair would it be to your client to give him a HTML4 website that isn’t responsive? I know from my own stats on my busiest website, that about half of the site visits are from people on smartphones or tablets. It is essential to use HTML5 and to understand how to build responsive websites, meaning, sites that adjust to any size screen without any flaws.
We webdesigners are never done upgrading our skills. Something new will always come along, and we must be prepared to learn more and give only the best to the people, organizations, and companies we serve. Don’t be like that new webdesigner that came to my town, pretending to be able to design websites just because he thought it was easy money. That is unethical, and unkind.
It is true that most people are ignorant enough about webdesign skills that they can easily be deceived, but we can’t deceive ourselves. We owe it to ourselves and our clients to deliver only top quality services.
