Web Hosting and Web Site Development: A Guide to Opportunities

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-These straightforward, accessible texts do just what their titles suggest-present aspects of various career opportunities within the e-commerce and Internet fields, with suggestions for how young people can get a start in this constantly changing environment. Web Hosting is the more general of the two, giving a broad overview of the entire industry. Careers focuses on the actual creation of a Web site, with some helpful design "do's and don'ts," as well as profiles of several successful individuals, and the paths they took to their current jobs. There is some understandable overlap in the two titles, but the real downside is, of course, that any book on the subject is invariably dated by the time it hits library shelves. The main problem here is that there is no mention of the recent dot-com bust and the difficulties that one may encounter in securing employment in the current economic climate. However, both authors are clearly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Web, and they point out to kids that they're never too young to think big, and that this may be the one industry in which youth is a distinct advantage. Neither of these books is an absolute necessity, but both are serviceable if you have lots of dot-com enthusiasts.-Ronni Krasnow, New York Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
