    Book details

Foundation Website Creation with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript shows the entire process of building a website. This process involves much more than just technical knowledge, and this book provides all the information you'll need to understand the concepts behind designing and developing for the Web, as well as the best means to deliver professional results based on best practices.

Of course, there is far more to building a successful website than knowing a little Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). The process starts long before any coding takes place, and this book introduces you to the agile development process, explaining why this method makes so much sense for web projects and how best to implement it. We also make sure you're up to date by using the latest HTML5 features. Planning is vital, so you'll also learn to use techniques such as brainstorming, wireframes, mockups, and prototypes to get your project off to the best possible start and help ensure smooth progress as it develops.

An understanding of correct, semantic markup is essential for any web professional; this book explains how HTML5 should be used to structure content so that the markup adheres to current web standards. You'll learn about the wide range of HTML5 elements available to you, and you'll learn how and when to use them through building example web pages.

Without creative use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), websites would all look largely the same. CSS enables you to set your website apart from the rest, while maintaining the integrity of your markup. We'll showcase the new features of CSS3 and how you can use them. You'll learn how CSS3 works and how to apply styles to your pages, allowing you to realize your design ideas in the browser.

JavaScript can be used to make your website easier and more interesting to use. This book provides information on appropriate uses of this technology and introduces the concepts of JavaScript programming. You'll also see how JavaScript works as part of the much-hyped technique Ajax, and in turn, where Ajax fits into the wider Web 2.0 picture.

While a website is being built, it needs to be tested across multiple browsers and platforms to ensure that the site works for all users, regardless of ability or disability, and this book explains how best to accomplish these tasks. Then, it discusses the process of launching and maintaining the site so that it will continue to work for all its users throughout its life cycle.

Foundation Website Creation with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript concludes by covering server-side technologies, acting as a guide to the different options available. With insights from renowned experts such as Jason Fried of 37signals, Daniel Burka of Digg and Pownce, and Chris Messina of Citizen Agency, Foundation Website Creation with CSS, XHTML, and JavaScript provides invaluable information applicable to every web project―regardless of size, scope, or budget.

    What can you say... awful, riddled with code errors. Do not buy this book if you are learning code... you will only learn how to create bugs.I am a software tester and currently spend a lot of my spare time and money learning code, primarily via books and the internet.I saw this book and thought it may give me some great insight into CSS3, HTML5 and something I've never touched on JavaScript.Well it may well be useful for that if it wasn't full of error's, the code snippets it gives you are full of errors, hence the reviewed by a monkey comment. If the people who wrote and reviewed the code in this book worked with me, I would be seriously grateful that they were keeping me in a job.. but they would be likely to get sacked very soon after they started as I could only presume they lied on their CV.If you want to learn code... do not buy this bookIf you know code and can handle the and pick up on the code errors then you might learn something though you'd be better off looking on Microsoft's Channel 9 for useful information.Examples of errors - (Friends of ed, Lane Barker & Lewis Moscovitz you can have these examples for free)Page 64 and 65 "ChocloateChips" not "ChocolateChip s"Page 65 - Last line there is a space between "<a" and "href" it's not "<ahref="Page 65 - last line there is no space in the URL between "h" and "ttp"I can't be bothered to give you any more, you can read your own pile of rubbish and figure it out. My book is now going to live under a monitor rather than me buying a monitor riser..

    I can't believe this is being sold for almost £27. There was only one example, a registration form. More examples to show off the versatility of HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript would have been nice. Also, there were far too many proof reading errors; random spaces in the middle of words missing spaces and semi-colons, etc. I have bought similar books for less that contained more useful content. Might be useful for a beginner if you can find it for under £10, otherwise I recommend you spend your money elsewhere.
