That means they will be using the HTML5 semantic elements to mark up the structure of a page. They will be using float and the CSS box model. The last chapter in this section shows your students how to use Responsive Web Design so their pages will work on all screens, from mobile devices to computers.
This, of course, is an essential skill for all web developers. From this point on, the sections and chapters are written as independent modules, so you can assign them in whatever sequence you prefer. These modules let you build modern page layouts without using floating. That includes: How to work with images, which were introduced in section 1, including icons, rollovers, and image maps When and how to use tables, including how to make tables responsive How to work with forms and the HTML5 validation features How to add audio and video to web pages by using HTML5 to work with the players that are built into all modern browsers How to use embedded fonts so all browsers will have access to them How to format web pages for printing How to use the CSS3 features for transitions, animations, transforms, and filters Section 4: Design and deployment Section 4 consists of two chapters.
And chapter 18 shows not only how to deploy a site on a web server, but also how to get the site indexed on the major search engines and directories.
This section and book ends with chapter 20, which introduces some of the third-party development tools that professional developers use These have become essential skills on the job. This provides a nice perspective on what can be expected in the real world.
And although you can use any text editor you choose, this book now uses Brackets instead of Aptana. So chapter 2 provides a short tutorial on Brackets.
Beyond that, every chapter in the book has been improved, enhanced, and upgraded. We developed a new Health case study that you can use as an alternative to the Halloween case study.
Here, though, are features that are specific to this book. Then, after the students understand how websites are implemented, they are ready to learn the principles of web design, which can be taught any time after section 1. Responsive Web Design is emphasized Chapter 8 in this book shows how to build responsive web pages with fluid layout, scalable images, and media queries. It also shows how to use a jQuery plugin called SlickNav to convert the menus for a page to a form that works on mobile devices.
In short, your students learn all the skills that they need for building responsive websites at a professional level. Accessibility and SEO guidelines are integrated User accessibility and search engine optimization are presented in chapter 1. After that, guidelines for accessibility and SEO are presented whenever they are relevant. The continuing application is real world Like other books, our book has dozens of examples that show how HTML and CSS are used in a variety of contexts.
Beyond that, though, our book presents a real-world application that is progressively enhanced from one chapter to the next. In fact, this application is a simplified version of a site that we developed for a local nonprofit that brings six speakers each year to its Town Hall meetings. What courses this book can be used for This book is currently used by colleges and universities around the world for a variety of course titles.
In that case, you can teach section 1, select the remaining chapters that you want to include, and skip the other chapters. Then, your students can use the rest of the book in an advanced course or as a reference for their own work. What software your students need A text editor Although your students can use a text editor as simple as Notepad to code HTML and CSS, we think that a text editor that includes syntax coloring, auto-completion, and error-marking will help your students build web pages more quickly and with fewer errors.
That in turn means that they will learn faster. To make it easy for your students to adjust to this editor, the appendix in our book shows how to download and install the software, and chapter 2 gives a tutorial on using it.
Of course, your students can use whichever editor or IDE you want with this book. The Chrome browser To run and test web applications, your students should use at least two browsers.
So your students will get that practical perspective right from the start. Beyond that, this book uses a didactic approach that works for students with no programming background as well as for students who have already taken a programming course. I asked a student to evaluate it for me, and now I cannot get it back! My thoughts are Murach books are uniquely geared towards two-year colleges. We need books that cut to the chase and hit the ground running.
Thanks for providing affordable and quality books. Finished with the class but I still use this book as reference material. There is so much here and it has helped me a great deal.
