We first started with some practical arrangements, specially because we are doing this thesis together.
- our team name: HTMobieL
- setting up a shared Google calendar
- looking for a appropriate timetracker tool for teams
- setting up WordPress, Dropbox, Google Docs, our team name hashtag #HTMobieL on Twitter
- a rough schedule for the whole year, comparing each others examen schedules, our class schedule and our personal calendar (a Gantt chart for the first semester will follow)
Next, we had to grasp the basics of HTML5 without using any frameworks yet. We searched the online library of the KU Leuven, safaribooksonline.com and the web. We found out there is much documentation available. What follows is a list of literature we started reading:
- HTML5 Architecture, Wesley Hales
- Introducing HTML5, Bruce Lawson; Remy Sharp
- Practical CSS3: Develop and Design, Chris Mills
The following list are the books we are planning to read:
- HTML5 & CSS3 For The Real World, Estelle Weyl; Louis Lazaris; Alexis Goldstein (ordered from the KULAK library)
- HTML5 Mobile Websites, Matthew David
- Pro jQuery Mobile, Brad Broulik
We are looking forward to the first thesis meeting. For this meeting, we already prepared some specific questions we want to ask.
