Product Description

Do you want to really understand Web Development but don't know where to start? If you want to get your hands around the whole process of web development but feel there is just too much to learn, then this book can help you.
The Web development arena is vast and it is ever growing. There is no way for any one person to know it all. If there were just one critical skill that anyone involved in web development, that is a practical understanding of the whole web development arena. It doesn't matter if you are a designer, a content author or perhaps someone that has been tasked to bring the whole thing together. With the knowledge you get from this book, you will have an understanding of all the major areas of web development and the highly important touch points.
I start off with some of the key concepts of successful web design. Some of these are often overlooked such as the development lifecycle and Search engine optimization. Others you may know something about but are not sure how it impacts the success of your site. The first section of this book gives you the foundation you need to get your site off the ground
Next, I go over web security and how it has become a major topic of discussion and concern for anyone involved with Internet technologies.
The last section goes over all of the technologies that make up websites and applications. By the end of this book, you will know what each of the technologies are and what they do. This book does not intend to teach you how to write or use any of these but instead gives you enough understanding about each to know where you want to focus your learning next.
This book is all about understanding. Once you have that the rest is up to you. Do you want to learn to code it yourself or farm that work out to someone else. You will have the skills to make that decision and be well on your way to becoming a first class developer.

5Comprehensive web design guide at your finger tips
By deluxeczech
This is a very comprehensive overview of web development from conception to security to maintenance. Each chapter is precisely written to a topic with no fluff to confuse or distract you. It can be read from beginning to end (for full usefullness) or chapters referenced individually (say, if you are a tester and want to understand the different interface testing methods and tools). I would definitely recommend this guide to beginners in the world of web development and - having worked in IT myself for many years - it would be a helpufl refresher to some experienced personnel.

Don't be fooled just because you've been 'doing this for a while' (blows on fingers arrogantly); web technologies, security postures, and the public's changing needs and wants makes web development a living and dynamic entity. This guide will help you stay on top of key concepts and industry norms.

1High expectations dashed to pieces...
By JakeTheFatman
Many of the chapters are only one or two pages long, very generic and superficial overviews... Lots of bad spelling and grammar... I quickly grew tired of reading the word principals when the author clearly meant principles... The only good thing about this book, which I completely abandoned half way through, was that it was on sale when I bought it...
