Interact With Web Standards - A Holistic Approach to Web Design

This recent discovery is authored by a group of web designers and usability architects in the industry from the US and Western Europe. The book is divided into three sections and starts off with a solid background into web design and its fundamentals. Part Two dives into planning and strategy, while Part Three gets down to the nitty gritty: implementation.

Readers will benefit from the overall perspective of the entire web process and what it takes to get content sourced and brought online. The book's sections on CSS and and coding will get a beginner programmer/web designer up to speed with laying out a site. This book will also aid companies in hiring a web team. Anyone with an interest in learning what goes on behind the scenes will benefit from this read. In addition, many useful web links are provided in the right spots to augment the reading experience while not getting too technical in any given area.

This is one guide that can also serve as a handy reference when talking through a project with clients. They too will benefit by reading the content strategy area, in order to learn how to best approach building a site for the first time - a daunting process for the uninitiated.

I'm an individual who has a fairly decent sized personal library of web design and development books and I consider myself to have intermediate level skills in the area of web design. With these two things said, I give the highest level of praise to this book.

I don't have a personal connection to any of the authors of this publication but I feel fortunate to have met the book's Project Manager, Aarron Walter, at a 2010 web design conference. After our brief meeting, hearing his presentation at the conference, and now reading this work, I can tell you that this is a person who deeply cares about the education of future web professionals. And that caring shines through in the book. The multiple individuals who contributed chapters to this publication also show concern for web education as they guide readers through web design's best practices and standards with an easy and light-hearted style. I did not have any trouble adjusting to each individual author's approach to the various chapter topics. And I think it's also important to mention that this group of authors is donating 25% of their proceeds to the W3C's Open Web Education Alliance, a group formed to promote standards and best practice based education for web professionals.

More specifically, one of the really great things about this publication is that it includes "Try it yourself" sections, that offer exercises to practice the techniques you learn about in the book. There is also a companion website that provides code downloads for the HTML and CSS chapters. I found the Accessibility chapters particularly helpful. The final chapter provides a very good overview of all the topics presented in the book by guiding readers through the process of planning and building an entire website.

I teach a course on Web Application Development at the graduate school level. As a result I end up buying a dozen or more books in this topic area per semester. This book has moved to the top of my recommended list for experienced and new learners. The book does a great job of breaking down the real aspects of developing websites into meaningful topics, arranged them in a great manner and had real experts on those topics cover them. Let me emphasize the "REAL" aspects, there are a ton of other books that cover, say, PHP object oriented abstractions and other technical aspects of developing websites. This book does the best job of recognizing the reality, the human aspects, of the process and ongoing nature of developing a website. This is done with a high level of professionalism while keeping it real and engaging.

Students starting in on the topic will benefit from a great roadmap of best practices. "Seasoned" developers will benefit from the thoughtful review of best practices to add [back] to your business.

This is a great book for understanding the ways of the html and css and how to build a website. It has very interesting perspectives from several different writers. I like this style because it helps me understand the material better since each writer was very skilled in his/her certain topic.

It was almost like reading a novel at times. I'll have to admit, after a while, I ran out of time and didn't read the last quarter or so. But what I read was really helpful with my class.

The state of web design education is improving but there always seems to be a gap in our industry between curriculum and employment. The topics covered in this book help bridge that gap, providing a solid, essential foundation for any aspiring web professional. Whether you teach web designers, want to be a web designer, or just want to make sure you're up to speed, I highly recommend this book.
