HTML5 canvas resources for beginners

HTML5’s <canvas> element is one of the large driving forces behind my excitement for HTML5 development. Canvas provides a wonderful way to add extra shine and glitz to your HTML5 application beyond what JavaScript can provide via animations and events. Prior to HTML5, the solution to providing that extra glitz was to embed an Adobe Flash or Microsoft Silverlight object into your application. Now there is a non-proprietary solution: HTML5’s canvas. However, not every web developer is currently familiar with canvas. To help those who are unfamiliar, I’ve gathered a few handy links to help those interested in working with the canvas element.
