Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing course requirements, part of Building an Advanced To-Do List with HTML5.
To follow along with this course the requirements are pretty straightforward. From a tool's perspective you'll need a code editor and a number of browsers for testing. You can use whichever code editor you prefer. I am going to be working with Aptana on the Mac; a free editor for both Mac and Windows. Most of our browser demonstrations and testing will be using pretty current versions of standard-based browsers like Mozilla Firefox. As the focus in this course is on some of the most recently released technologies I'll point out where you might run into a problem working with some of the more popular recent browsers.
Although I'm going to be going through all the details of applying HTML 5 technologies to a specific project, you'll get the most benefit if you keep your mind open for other ways you can apply the same lessons to your own work.
