A Comprehensive, Well-Rounded Intro to Web Development and Design
Updated and expanded in this Eighth Edition, Web Development and Design Foundations with HTML5 presents a comprehensive introduction to the development of effective web sites.

An emphasis on hands-on practice guides readers, as the text introduces topics ranging from configuration and layout to accessibility techniques and ethical considerations. The Eighth Edition contains updated coverage of HTML5 and CSS, expanded coverage of designing for mobile devices, and more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author
This is an exciting time to be in the field of web development -- HTML5, CSS3, the mobile web! The field is constantly changing and this book provides a well-rounded foundation in coding and design concepts. The approach of the book reflects my personal philosophy of teaching web development and emphasizes hands-on practice exercises. Case studies are included throughout the book to provide students an opportunity to apply their new skills. The textbook companion website at webdevfoundations.net has a page for each chapter with hyperlinks for websites listed in the book, information on emerging trends, additional examples, corrections, and review games. Instructor materials are available from the publisher's website.

5I LOVE this textbook
By Katelyn Ma
I LOVE this textbook. One of the best textbooks I've ever used in my life. It's very simple and easy to understand - with examples of code demonstrated. Lots of pictures to illustrate concepts. Best yet - the book is based on a hands-on style. It's not meant to be read through from cover to cover. Instead, a plethora hands-on exercises are provided that walk the reader through coding something and learning by example.

At the end of each chapter, more projects are provided to reinforce the learning.

I love this text so much that I plan to purchase it after my rental period expires.

1Over priced trash
By Amazon Customer
This book is just a shame. The content in the book is so messy, outdated (Java applet? Excuse me?), poorly organized (I can't believe that the author managed to stuff multimedia, javascript, jquery, java, ajax, css transform, css transition in ONE CHAPTER, which is only 30 pages).

I don't understand why schools have to make students use such lame textbooks, when there are obviously much cheaper, and much better materials around (w3schools, tutorialpoint, CSS tricks, which are FREE, and HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites, which is 1/3 of the price of this one and hundred times better). The producer of such crappy material can only count for textbooks to make profits I guess.

3Why Do Teachers Make You Buy Textbooks To Look Up Things That You Can Just Google?
By Chris Bryan
I never used it, since you can look up anything online, but it seems useful to someone without immediate internet access.
