Overview

This book is about implementing websites on servers and on browsers. Rather than concentrate in fine detail upon specific technologies, Chris Bates has provided a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the essentials of web development, covering an ever-expanding field in a single volume. Focusing on immediately useful code rather than theory, this is a how-to book for programmers who need quick answers.

Starting with client-side development using HTML and CSS, and moving on to more complex server-side applications written in open source languages such as Perl and PHP, the new edition of this successful textbook has been substantially revised and updated to include increased coverage of PHP and new sections on database design and configuration, Apache and MySQL. Based on years of successful teaching and taking an insightful, example-led approach, Web Programming is the complete all-in-one introduction to website programming and development, ideal for classroom use or self-study.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bates (Sheffield Hallam University) introduces some of the basic technologies for creating and processing content on web sites. The book concentrates on immediately useful code rather than theory, but is still quite suitable as an undergraduate textbook. Individual chapters discuss HTML 4.0, XHTML, Dynamic HTML, JavaScript, Perl 5, CGI scripting, XML, and protocols. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
