Meet the Author

Andy Harris began his teaching life as a special education teacher. As he was teaching young adults with severe disabilities, he taught himself enough computer programming to support his teaching habit with freelance programming. Those were the exciting days when computers started to have hard drives, and some computers began communicating with each other over an arcane mechanism some were calling the Internet.

All this time Andy was teaching computer science part time. He joined the faculty of the Indiana University/Purdue University — Indianapolis Computer Science department in 1995. He serves as a Senior Lecturer, teaching the introductory course to Freshmen as well as numerous courses on Web development, general programming, and game programming. As manager of the Streaming Media Laboratory, he developed a number of online video-based courses, and worked on a number of international distance education projects including helping to start a computer science program in Tetevo, Macedonia FYR.

Andy is the author of several other computing books, including Beginning Flash Game Programming For Dummies and Game Programming: The L Line. He invites your comments and questions at andy@aharrisbooks.net.

Chris McCulloh has a bachelor’s degree in Media Arts and Science from Indiana University/Purdue University — Indianapolis (IUPUI), a certificate in Applied Computer Science from the Computer and Information Science Department (CSCI) at IUPUI, and is a full-time PHP Developer working at CIK Enterprises. He loves to teach, write, and read, and is currently teaching server-side programming for CSCI at IUPUI. He writes a programming-related blog on his Flash game site at blog.chomperstomp.com, and maintains a popular Firefox extension located at statusbarcalculator.com.

    Great Book for Beginners and Old Hands Alike

    I picked up this book to learn about what is new in web design. Each section that I have read has been full of information presented in an easy to understand format. I also like the fact that the authors shows you how to build a website without all kinds of specialty tools; in fact, the philosophy of this book it that anyone can and should build a website using tools that teach you what to write yourself, so you learn the language, not just learn how to use some web design tool. The result is a website that you know how it works and is easily maintained.

    I recommend this book whether you are someone who has never built a web site before, or someone who has some experience and would like to gain new knowledge. It covers the XHTML 1.0 Strict language standard very well, and encourages designers to write pages that will validate and run well with any browser. It also covers testing and compatibility issues with older web browsers, such as Internet Explorer 6.

    Great book to break into web standards

    I like this book a lot. It is clear, practical and straight to the point. Also, when I had a question I emailed the author and he responded very quickly to answer my question. Great buy.
