I was wondering what were you thought on being able to build an app similar to prezi (presentation app) using HTML 5.

Also while you're at it, I'm looking for a good HTML 5 book recommendation. Thanks!!

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Some work already being done on alternatives, all SVG-based:

these are pretty cool too! I like the concepts. Thank you! – mukaiji Jun 28 '11 at 4:43

Prezi is written in Flash/ActionScript, but there's no reason you couldn't attempt something similar with HTML/JavaScript. (Note that you won't be able to create an application like Prezi with HTML5 alone. You will need JavaScript too.)

Here are my favourite books on both subjects:

HTML5 books

JavaScript books
