"Develop a solid mastery of leading edge web design technologies
Unlike most Web design and development books (which focus on either a single programming language or a single development tool that is often not available in school labs nor on students' own PCs), this text helps students develop a solid mastery of leading-edge technologies by using the many and varied development tools that are available either at school computer labs or as free Web downloads. Using an integrative approach throughout, each chapter focuses on both Web design and development methods and offers cumulative real-world, hands-on exercises and projects.
- Straightforward language supported by well-planned illustrationsSimplifies and communicates complex and difficult concepts.
- Allows students with no Web-programming experience to learn the leading-edge Internet/Web skills and work through the topics with interest, comfort, and success.
- Use of free software ("Buy Low") to develop advanced skills ("Sell High")Because lack of updated hardware and software and restricted access to institutional Web servers are the two main bottlenecks limiting students' hands-on learning activities of Web design and development, this text shows students how to "buy low" by identifying and taking advantage of free-download trial or beta versions of Web servers and development tools, and how to develop advanced Web skills that they can "sell high" on the job market.
- Provides students and instructors with quick-access sources to important handbook information.
