Facebook opens HTML5 Resource Centre for developers

Developers now have access to Facebook's HTML5 Resource Centre in order to assist them in developing HTML5 compatible web apps.

The social networking site is keen to promote and support HTML5 development and, in addition to the Resource Centre, has created a HTML5 Blog and Developer Group.

Writing in a post on the new HTML Blog, Facebook engineer Matt Kelly said: "Today we are releasing three new HTML5 resources to help developers learn from our experience and the experience of other industry leaders building HTML5 apps."

The aim, says Facebook, is to aid developers in the entire process from build to test to deployment of web applications. Industry experts will be contributing to the blog and developers are encouraged to raise questions and share tips and insights in the HTML5 Developer Group.

The increasing use of HTML5 by developers, including Facebook, for mobile products means reaching users across many different devices is getting easier and with over 800 million users accessing Facebook it's the perfect way for developers to get their apps noticed.

"The web already allows developers to create great apps, and things are advancing rapidly. We hope these new HTML5 resources help accelerate the rate of innovation and improve the user experience of web apps," added Kelly.
