HTML5 and CSS3 are changing how web pages are developed in some exciting new ways! The trick is learning how to use this new functionality as quickly, as easily, and as sensibly as possible.
That's where this book comes in. Whether you're new to web development...or whether you’re an experienced web developer who's been frustrated by the slow pace and gaping holes in the other training you've tried...this book was written for YOU.
Get going fast
In just the first 6 chapters of this book, you'll learn more about web development than you can from most full books.
It's true! In fact, by the end of the crash course in Section 1, you'll be developing web pages the way today's best professionals do.
That means you'll be using HTML5 semantic elements to mark up the structure of the content on the page and CSS to format and lay out that content. If you're new to the subject, you'll see why you need to use floating and the CSS box model right from the start. If you've used earlier editions of CSS, you'll be amazed at how easily CSS3 lets you create pages with text and box shadows, rounded corners, gradients…all without having to spend time on custom images for each effect!
But that's just the beginning
In Section 2, you'll see how to refine your web pages with the features that users expect today. That includes:
- Ensuring that elements like links and images work in an intuitive way
- Adding audio and video clips to your pages (HTML5 features let you take advantage of the players that are built into all modern browsers, but you'll also learn how to use Flash as a fallback solution for older browsers)
- Formatting your web content for easy printing
- And more!
So Section 3 in this book gets you started. It shows you how to:
- use jQuery to enhance your web pages with features like accordions, carousels, and popup boxes
- use jQuery Mobile to develop web pages for mobile devices with the look and feel of native applications
Design and deployment
Finally, Section 4 rounds out your skills with chapters on web design and deployment.
Once you have a good grasp of how to develop web pages, you can understand the kinds of decisions you have to make in designing a site, and chapter 17 shows you how to do that using today's best practices. Then, chapter 18 shows you not only how to deploy your site on a web server, but how to get the site indexed on the major search engines and directories.
