5.0 out of 5 stars Sebesta Is One Of The Best 30 November 2012
By Agrippa's Epiphany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sebesta is well-known for his text on programming language theory. These books on the application of languages in the domain of world wide web programming are timely and well-written. I have a few editions of this text, each represents a different mix of topics which address the most popular technologies of their era such as AJAX, XHTML, PHP, CSS, and etc. I would recommend any of the text for someone who has an interest in learning some of the fundamentals of web development. With a computer with a web browser, one might get started using some of the technologies. Internet access is not a requirement for learning the basics. And, and older edition such as this one is excellent for the neophyte. In most instances, the technologies have not changed so over a decade that the work which can be done based on these books would be considered "dated" or "obsolete". This book is very accessible and might be a great holiday gift for that inquisitive middle or high school student who has an interest in computing. Also, coupled with one of Dan Goodman's refences on Dynamic HTML (DHTML), a professional developer has a nice set of works for quick reference on his desk. I taught a computing elective in Internet Programming using LAMP technologies for non-computing majors at a university using this text in the middle of the last decade, and all of my students produced professional-grade websites which small businesses could use within the semester.
4.0 out of 5 stars Covers the basics of most web programming topics. 28 February 2009
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was the textbook for a college web programming course.

Things I liked and reasons to buy:
The thing I like the most about this book is that it covers the basics of what seems to me to be about every possible important programming technology for the web. Coverage is solid but there is a potential downside (see below). What I also liked was that in the early part of the text it sticks to teaching you XHTML/CSS programming rather than wasting time with older HTML. This book is written by a college professor and he gives you a lot of background information that will give you insight that will allow some deeper understanding.

Things I didn't like and reasons not to buy:
This book covers about 15 technologies (and a few of those each have related technologies that need and get some explanation). Plus: Appedix A is an intro to Java and Appedix C is an intro to Java Applets. The coverage provided for all of these technologies will get you started and teach you the basics but if you plan to program with these technologies you are going to need additional resources. I find the web itself to be a good resource. Finally, this book is expensive. The 5th edition (for whatever reason) is about $30 cheaper. Just get that one. In looking at the reviews of the 5th ed (where someone listed the TOC) I can see that these books appear to be identical. What looks dissappointing to me in the newer 5th edition though, is that it does not include coverage of Groovy/Grails a new web development technology based on Java coding. See grails.org or en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grails_(framework).

Happy web programming!
3.0 out of 5 stars Very brief 31 December 2012
By K Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Pros: Great overview of web programming concepts for people who are completely new to it. Gives a few tips and tutorials for one or two things (HTML, CSS, JavaScript).

Cons: It's not a very in-depth guide. I feel that the few tutorials and chapters they have on different languages could easily be found and accessed for free on most web programming forums. I couldn't justify advising people to purchase a book that I don't think will really teach them what they are trying to learn. If you want to learn HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and Ruby on Rails, then purchase books specific to those. Don't go with a book this broad.

Verdict: 3 stars for the general layout and for giving tips and tutorials. Wouldn't advise people to purchase this, as it only gives a broad view vs. an indepth understanding.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book has very good explanations of concepts and shows great examples 23 June 2016

This book has very good explanations of concepts and shows great examples. The exercises make use of what you have learned in the chapter and is a great help in learning these concepts! I've learned a lot about internet programming I didn't even know existed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow. Difficult to master! 18 November 2013
By Alan F Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well written, other than a few typos here and there. I like the way the author explains the topics and lists some programs to use for editing the various languages mentioned (such as HTML, XHTML, Javascript, and XML).

The only complaint I have is that sometimes the text can go over my head. Luckily for me, I have an instructor for help, but take that into consideration when making a purchase.
