My advice would be to not use HTML5 and JavaScript directly if you can avoid it. I know you said you wish to work directly with code, but the following tools are worth checking out in my opinion:

Game Maker (http://www.yoyogames...amemaker/studio) can produce HTML5 games.

So can Construct2 ( http://www.scirra.com/construct2 )

Baring that there are game libraries such as Crafty: http://craftyjs.com/tutorial/

Or cocos2d: http://cocos2d-javascript.org/

If your goal is to create a game than I strongly advise not to try to reinvent the wheel and to use some existing framework/library/tool as the basis for your game. If you want to start "from scratch" then something like: http://rhuno.com/fla...and-javascript/ may be a good starting point.

Good luck.
