Foundation Website Creation with CSS, XHTML, and JavaScript

In a real bookstore

I would have announced this earlier, but somehow with the trip to Taiwan, the subsequent jet lag, and the whopper of a cold I had this past week has delayed me from getting this post out until now. But here it is: My book titled “Foundation Website Creation with CSS, XHTML, and JavaScript” is now out! I saw two copies of it today on the shelf at Barnes & Noble in Walnut Creek earlier today (pictured).

This project came up at a real interesting time. I was just starting the final quarter of my masters degree program through University of Denver in computer information systems, and the last thing I wanted to do was to take on extra work. But of course, this opportunity to collaborate on this project was too good to pass up, so I opted for no sleep for a few months and somehow got both done last June. Man, it feels good to be done.

My fellow authors Jonathan Lane and Meitar Moscovitz and I have put together a book that covers a professional introduction to the core technologies involved in front-end website development. In it we have tried to convey modern best practices from a web standards perspective as well as from a user-centric project management perspective to give the emerging web developer a solid foundation as to what to expect in a professional web design workflow. I hope the readers of this book find the information contained therein to be valuable platforms for further exploration and learning.

The book may be ordered from Amazon, and you might even find it on a local bookstore shelf!
