2. Ruvalcaba and Boehm: Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3: Training & Reference. Paperback – 17 Apr 2015


“Until now, my websites looked great but have been coded with what seems like ‘duct-tape and bubble-gum’ methods, just for appearances and not for professionalism nor compliance. This book taught me all [that is] possible with simple HTML5 and CSS3 coding…What a game changer!” That’s what one web designer posted about the previous edition of Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3. Now, this 3rd Edition adds professional coverage of Responsive Web Design-a must for all web developers-while it updates and improves all the content in the previous edition. So whether you’re a web designer, a JavaScript programmer, a server-side programmer, or a rookie, this book delivers the HTML/CSS coding skills you need today. It begins with an 8-chapter hands-on course that teaches you HTML5 and CSS3 from scratch, showing you how you can’t use one without the other nowadays. This quick-start course ends with a chapter that teaches you how to use Responsive Web Design (RWD) so your pages will look good and work right on any screen, from phone to tablet to desktop and beyond. In fact, you’ll learn more about RWD in this one chapter than you can in many full books on the subject! After that, you can go on to any other chapter in the book to learn new skills whenever you need them. For example, you can learn how to enhance a site with audio and video clips, forms with HTML5 data validation, or CSS3 transitions and animations. You can see how to use JavaScript and jQuery to add features like accordions, tabs, and slide shows to a page, or to create a mobile site when a responsive site is impractical. You can learn the principles of web design, as well as how to deploy your finished sites. And no matter what, you can use the book as a time-saving reference whenever you have a question about HTML and CSS.
