"Great for beginners and intermediates" - by ekw
I purchased this book primarily for the chapters on JavaScript, JSON, and AJAX. I've been working with HTML and CSS for quite some time so I just skimmed those chapters. However, even tho the HTML and CSS chapters are basic (to me) in some ways, they actually reinforce some best practices that I was glad to be reminded of. I think the book has a clear intention of teaching best practices in programming and for that reason alone it's great for students. The chapters on Node, Mongo, and Redis were the most challenging for me because of my little experience with NoSQL databases and server side programming.

The book outlines a college level course, so it has to assume some students are more beginner than others, but it does a great job of providing valuable exercises for all levels. The instruction is clear and thorough, and ... full review

"Takes intermediate developers to the next level" - by Mike Tarrani (Deltona, FL USA)
This book is an ideal text for providing intermediate-level web developers with a solid grounding in architectural principles and more advanced techniques. Before going into why I like this book I do want to offer one caveat - the authors' approach is towards the Model-View-Controller paradigm, and is based on Java Standard Tag Library, Jarkata struts and Apache. These are solid elements, but if you are working in a different environment you will not appreciate this book as much.
The historical material in this book is not fluff if you approach it with the intent to gain a fuller understanding of the major components of the Internet and web. This material is rich with details about why the core web technologies developed and evolved, including design choices the pioneers made in the face of constraints. In a subtle way this part of the book is a primer ... full review

"Not So Dumb Dummies Book" - by William Hefner (EUREKA, CA USA)
Web Coding & Development is a compilation of 8 different books aimed mainly at entry-level website developers who have at least some familiarity with coding. The material is pretty basic and parts of it are more for reference than for reading straight through.

I was a bit surprised that the book basically ignored the fact that most websites these days are not coded by hand, but rather generated through content management systems (CMS). The average website developer really does not need to know much of the material in this book in order to design a website these days. I believe that this book is targeting people who have written code in other languages before and who want to learn the "under the hood" aspects of how modern HTML design works. In practice, only a tiny percentage of website developers have any idea how to write code by hand, which is what ... full review

"buy this!" - by Hip-Hop Phenomenon
There were a lot of typos/misspellings like using 'loose' instead of 'lose', 'Micrsoft' instead of 'Microsoft', but boy did I learn a lot from this book! I like that it really gets to the essence of the topics instead of being bothered with details. Some new things I learned about were on caching and making the web app be usable without internet connection, writing your own API for local storage, how promises are useful and good practice for AJAX requests. I wish that I read this book earlier!

"Decent, but rough around the edges, expect lots of times debugging examples." - by Amazon Customer
I simply can't give this book more than 4 stars, which is sad. The book is quite well done, by it's basically a template with a bit of reasoning, the examples are nearly impossible to follow. Sometimes I can be stuck in a section for hours, just to find out that there was a tiny bit of information on a picture, which wasn't mentioned in the text. This might not have been so bad if it wasn't for the fact that this book is from March 2017 (i believe), for one thing, ASP.NET Core is now in 2.0 and many of the websites used has changed layout quite a bit.

But it's still quite a good book, and the only one of its kind I could find. But please for the love of good, give a clear indication which files you are working in, it can be frustrating to not know ... full review

"Excellent overview of web app development using Java EE 7 and Spring 4" - by Tosawa (Chicago, IL USA)
Not many programming books are published that not only use the latest versions of the software and programming language at the time of writing, but also go a step further and preview some up and coming technologies that will almost certainly be generally available by the time you read the book (e.g., Java 1.8 was released around the same time this book was published).

This book is a great intro to the myriad Java enterprise frameworks available today. Learn how Java EE 7 has made Java EE relevant for the first time since Servlets were introduced. Not only are the main Java EE topics covered nicely, but there are a few chapters involving the ubiquitous Spring Framework that aid the programmer in implementing features that aren't very well covered yet by Java EE (like authentication that doesn't rely on the underlying operating system).

If you're an enterprise software developer who primarily works ... full review

IBM Lotus Domino: Classic Web Application Development Techniques
by Richard G. Ellis
344 pages
Packt Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-849682-40-4

In the world of Lotus Domino development, we've been able to build Web applications for around 15 years. With each successive release, we got more capabilities as Domino incorporated more Web standards into the development mix. In the last two years, all the talk surrounding Domino Web development has been focused on XPages. But that doesn't negate the fact that there are still volumes of applications out there that are built with classic Domino Web development techniques and may have to stay that way. If you need help moving past applications that only target the Notes client (and you can't use XPages), you will benefit from reading "IBM Lotus Domino: Classic Web Application Development Techniques" by Richard G. Ellis. While this book would have had a greater impact three years ago, it's still relevant, as you don't ... full review

"Great all arounder!" - by Amazon Customer
This book is great and goes over almost all of the basics for creating web applications with Flask. It is a lot easier to navigate this book than the myriad of tutorials and articles scattered across the web. One of the key things a lot of people get wrong when talking about Flask is how the templating works with Jinja2. This book goes into great detail on how to utilize it properly and how the pathing works when using templates. Great read and a great help to an up and coming web developer.

"This is a piece of arts, not just book." - by Nhuy Van
I don't usually write a review for anything I buy on here, but when I do, the product items are extremely good and satisfying. Alright, let me tell you, the author is very thoughtful (in my opinion) about what he said in the book meaning that, every time he showed a code example, he explained why he did it, also, what you should do and shouldn't do. The wording in the book is extremely clear and understandable, the author for sure assumed you have absolutely no knowledge about java servets and jsp, PLUS, he also explained other things in the Java EE suite like the new Persistence JPA API which is a very very convinient and easy way to work with databases as opposed to the old, low-level JDBC API, it is like when you started using color TV, you dont wanna switch to the old black-and-white at all, though, ... full review
