Html5 history API workshop on treehouse?

I think it would be amazing to get some insights in form of a workshop, or course about the html5 History API. Id especilly be interested in the inner workings of a site like this: http://minimalmonkey.com/

It creates an app like experience, with animations and transitions between pages, while keeping clean urls. Im assuming this is a combination of AJAX and the History API. And that it makes you able to avoid full page loads.

I'd very much like to know how to go about doing this. Most material online seems to assume a lot of pre-knowledge or maybe i just need it explained in video.

As a sidenote id be interested to know if its doable to integrate this type of design with wordpress? I can imagine that would be hard, but maybe im wrong?

What do everybody else think? Am I the only one interested in such a topic?

I would be very interested in learning the history API. I think it would be great if we could have the history API explained in a video. A lot of us are visual learners and we can learn the history API better and faster by watching it explained and applied in a video rather than reading a book or a 100 articles about it.

Thank you so much! - ill be looking in to those links soon. I'd still like to se a more practical approach in terms of a treehouse video, but should definitely get me started.
