Web Development Recipes

For Immediate Release: January 4, 2012

Modern web development takes more than just HTML and CSS with a little JavaScript mixed in. Clients want more responsive sites with faster interfaces that work on multiple devices, and you need the latest tools and techniques to make that happen.

Web Development Recipes (Pragmatic Bookshelf, $35.00) gives you more than 40 concise, tried-and-true solutions to today’s web development problems, and introduces new workflows that will expand your skillset.

You’ll see a full spectrum of cutting-edge web development techniques, from UI and eye candy recipes to solutions for data analysis, testing, and web hosting.

Make buttons and content stand out with simple cross-browser styles; do animations that work on mobile devices without plugins; build and test HTML emails; and build a flexible layout that works on desktops and mobile devices. You’ll use the Backbone and Knockout JavaScript frameworks to build responsive user interfaces, and you’ll learn how tools like CoffeeScript and Sass offer better ways to develop and maintain your client-side code. You’ll write tests for your code that run in multiple web browsers, use Git to keep track of your work, and even get a little one-on-one time with the Apache web server.

Whether you’re new to front-end development, or you’ve got a few years of experience, you’ll become a more versatile developer by finding out how–and why–to use these solutions in your next web development project.

Available in epub, mobi, and PDF direct from the publisher and in paperback from fine bookstores worldwide.
