Web Technologies: A Computer Science Perspective is ideal for courses in Web-based Systems (aka Web/Internet Programming/Systems) in Computer Science, MIS, and IT departments.

This text introduces the key technologies that have been developed as part of the birth and maturation of the World Wide Web. It provides a consistent, in-depth treatment of technologies that are unlikely to receive detailed coverage in non-Web computer science courses. Students will find an ongoing case study that integrates a wide spectrum of Web technologies, guidance on setting up their own software environments, and a variety of exercises and project assignments.

    Poor Print quality - good content

    Jagged text characters, grainy poor resolution black and white screen shots, faded text are not acceptable in a textbook from a major textbook publisher. I purchased this book for a class several weeks in advance of the start date, so it is too late to return the book. I complained to Prentice Hall, but they referred me to Barnes & Noble. This is not just an isolated instance. Several of my classmates have complained about the same issues. Don't buy this book without close inspection shortly after delivery.
