Smashing Magazine - HTML5 Resource of the Day

Brent Schooley / Thursday, May 16, 2013

I can’t say enough about today’s recommended resource for HTML5 developers and designers. Smashing Magazine has simply become a must read for me on a daily basis. The quality of content at the site is some of the best in the industry and spans a variety of topics from programming to design. If that wasn’t enough, they also have print and eBooks available from the site as well as a very active job board. Let’s take a look at what’s available on this great resource.


The “magazine” portion of Smashing Magazine is where the site gets its name and it is nothing short of smashing in terms of high quality content. The magazine is broken up into the following major sections: Coding, Design, Mobile, Graphics, UX Design, and Wordpress. Each of these sections is further broken down into subsections. For instance, the Coding section is broken down into CSS, HTML, JavaScript, and Techniques.




Smashing Magazine has book sets available in both print and eBook form. These are sold either as bundles or individual books. For instance, The UX Bundle is a collection of 10 books on user experience for $42.40, but each individual book such as Navigation & Interaction can be purchased for $4.99. The print books are collections of useful topics that span multiple disciplines and are printed in a high quality color format. These are definitely coffee table caliber books and are worth checking out.



Smashing Magazine is an amazing resource for people developing and designing in the HTML5 world. The content is second to none and there is a lot of it produced every week across the various disciplines represented on the site. This is definitely a site you will want to visit frequently.
