This is an excellent introduction to webdesign for anybody who wants to learn how to create websites for the real world. It's also a great tool to get those who already know the basics up to current standards. Stefan Mischook focuses on essential parts and only provides the background details that actually matter. No time wasted dissecting frogs, this book takes you directly to the meat of webdesign. The cover says 'A no-Nonsence, Jargon-Free Guide to the Fundamentals of Web Design" and that is exactly what this book delivers.
This is an excellent book anyone who has no programming experience. This book teaches the reader with the skills to build a simple, clean, and professional looking website. The first half of the book covers basic HTML and CSS, while the second hard dives deeper into the topics and fill in the details (HTML5/CSS3).
Fast forward to 2017 and the terrain is more clear: HTML 5 is the standard, Jquery and Bootstrap are looking like the future of simplifying the web development world, and CSS3 has replaced Flash as the multimedia heavyweight on the web. My problem was where the heck do I start? There's so many ways to skin the web design cat, and so many technologies to put it altogether. It's overwhelming and intimidating. I needed a good overview of the process and common practices in the field. This is the book for that. Will you be able to develop sophisticated sites with the knowledge from this book? No. The book focuses on breadth, not depth. That said, you could most definitely get something up and running from the contents of this book alone. Again, it won't be winning any awwwards anytime soon, but it's workable.
This book is a directory in that it guides you through the busy world of web development and design, and then presents all of the different paths to pursue a career in the web world. From there, it's up to you to further your education in the path of your choosing. Good luck!
