HTML5 Zone is brought to you in partnership with:

I was born in 1981 in one little city. Since I was 10y/o I programmed in different languages. My first languages were basic, then C++/MFC, after .Net (C#, VB.Net, J#, ASP.Net), XSL+XML processing). In the last 5 years I worked with web languages (HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, XML, XSL, JavaScript). After university I worked in several different companies, eventually becoming a blogger. This is my hobby too. Andrey is a DZone MVB and is not an employee of DZone and has posted 109 posts at DZone. You can read more from them at their website. View Full User Profile
