Overview

With organizations and individuals increasingly dependent on the Web, the need for competent, well-trained Web developers and maintainers is growing. Helping readers master Web development, Dynamic Web Programming and HTML5 covers specific Web programming languages, APIs, and coding techniques and provides an in-depth understanding of the underlying concepts, theory, and principles. The author leads readers through page structuring, page layout/styling, user input processing, dynamic user interfaces, database-driven websites, and mobile website development.

After an overview of the Web and Internet, the book focuses on the new HTML5 and its associated open Web platform standards. It covers the HTML5 markup language and DOM, new elements for structuring Web documents and forms, CSS3, and important JavaScript APIs associated with HTML5. Moving on to dynamic page generation and server-side programming with PHP, the text discusses page templates, form processing, session control, user login, database access, and server-side HTTP requests. It also explores more advanced topics such as XML and PHP/MySQL.

Suitable for a one- or two-semester course at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level, this comprehensive and up-to-date guide helps readers learn modern Web technologies and their practical applications. Numerous examples illustrate how the programming techniques and other elements work together to achieve practical goals.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"How do you teach web development for any type of device, and what do you include? What do you use for instructional materials? Where do you begin if you want to teach yourself? This book is where you start. It is suitable for instruction at the upper-division undergraduate level or the first-year of graduate school, as well as for self-study. The scope of topics is broad, including Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and HTML5, cascading style sheets (CSS), the document object model (DOM), JavaScript, PHP programming, MySQL database support, Apache web hosting, Extensible Markup Language (XML), Ajax, scalable vector graphics (SVG) and MathML, and mobile device computing. This is an ambitious list of topics to cover in a little over 600 pages. Fortunately, it looks like the author succeeded in his goal."
