Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the HTML5 Zone (Mar. 7 to Mar. 13). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. What You Need To Know About AngularJS Data Binding

You hear a lot about data binding in AngularJS, and with good reason: its at the heart of everything you do with Angular. I’ve mentioned data binding more than a few times in my guides to directives and filters, but I haven’t quite explained the internals of how data binding works.

2. QueryPath and HTML5

QueryPath enables you to easily work with HTML and XML in PHP. It's similar to working with jQuery but in PHP. The similarity is intentional. Working with HTML5 can have some hiccups because QueryPath uses the parser built into PHP.

3. Rich Object Models and Angular.js: Identity Maps

Using rich object models with Angular opens up the possibility of employing identity mapping in your codebase. I introduced a simple identity map implementation and demonstrated how it can be slotted into the mixin approach. Identity maps have tradeoffs and shouldn’t be used indiscriminately, but are a handy tool to add to your toolbox for certain situations.

4. Backbone.js Patterns and Best Practices

An overview of Swarnendu De's latest book on Backbone.js development where he discusses best practices and design patterns for real-world Backbone.js development.

5. WebGL with Three.JS (Lesson One)

This is our first lesson, where we consider the main basic functions: creating a scene, camera, renderer, controls (OrbitControls). We will also create the simplest directional light, add a dozen objects (of different geometry) with shadows.
