If you are a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files. At any time you should be able to see what files I'm working in and open up the same files to follow along. Some lessons there's also a version of the exercise file that ends in a capitalized DONE where you can see finished version of what we did in the lesson. To do the exercises, you will need a text wditor and an HTML5 compatible web browser, which could be any of the latest versions of Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera or Internet Explorer 9. Also included some source video and audio files so you don't need your own, but I will be showing you how to create those same files later on, so you can do it yourself.
If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can still follow along within your own project.
