Part of what course those achievements are from?

Hi, I've tackled this interesting user profile while I saw some achievements that I haven't found their courses, I'm especially interested in the HTML5 one (because I've looked up this subject and haven't found), does anyone knows where are those achievements from? '''achievements'''

I couldn't find it either. Perhaps it's part of a gold account?

Look at the date on the achievement. HTML5 is what is being taught now. If you see <!DOCTYPE html> you know it's HTML5.

There is no HTML5 course, and in the current HTML course there are no HTML5 materials.

I'll say it again. Look at the date on the achievement. HTML5 IS what is being taught now. If you see <!DOCTYPE html> you know it's HTML5.

I'll ask again, what course those achievements are earned from?

Now now children, behave.

Jeff, you're not understanding what it is that Oron is asking. "Where is that achievement from?", not "Where can I learn HTML5?"

In the time Treehouse has been around various courses have come and gone. Those badges are no longer available. So that's probably where the badge came from.

You can always email Treehouse support (help@teamtreehouse.com) they should be able to answer any of your questions about any other badges you're curious from around the site.

Hi James, thanks for your answer,

Do you have any idea why this course is gone?

No idea I don't personally ever remember looking at, that's why I mentioned Treehouse support.

If I had to guess ... since I've been on Treehouse most content that's been retired is because it become outdated.

Since no course covering HTML5, it is weird they've deprecated it (:

Ok, Thanks James, I'll contact support for further information.

Keep in mind badges are for sections of courses, so a badge with an HTML5 logo doesn't imply there was an entire course on HTML5 only that there was at least one badge related to HTML5.

I'm keeping it in mind,

but this time you must agree that Video badge sounds just about right for the "video" element in HTML5, and Graphics Basics pretty fit the new Canvas and SVG HTML5 tags (:

> Video badge sounds just about right for the "video" element in HTML5

Yes, in fact I checked on the name of that image and it's HTML5_Video.png


> Graphics Basics pretty fit the new Canvas and SVG

Actually Graphic Basics is about how images work and is a current badge.

The "Basics" badge is: HTML5_New_Tags.png (:

And there was also CSS3 course that doesn't exist anymore :( https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/25165464/css3.PNG

The CSS3 content was outdated, I did that course. It's now part of the CSS Foundations it covers CSS3.
