Become a Web Designer using this Book 🔥 Lit
24 May 2018
This book is the most straight forward introduction to HTML and CSS that I have found. I started reading a few other books before finding this one, and they all start with lots of unnecessary background information (What is a browser? How does the World Wide Web work?) before getting into the actual "how to" of creating a web page.
The only complaint I have after reading (almost the entire) book is that now, I'm not really sure where to start. It would be helpful as a sort of last step for the author to say, "Now that I've told you all of these things, here's where you should start." But I can also see where it doesn't make sense to do that because everyone is reading the book for different reasons. I guess you just start by writing some HTML and then some CSS to go along with that HTML, upload all those files to your web hosting server, and voila, you have your website. In theory.
I grabbed this book. It is awesome.
+ It's both a how-to and a reference book.
+ It's introductory and has more in-depth information.
+ It looks great with tons of color examples.
+ It has the code to create each example right there for you.
+ It has answered every question that I've bumped into.
+ It has a great index with a couple of reference sections like CSS properties.
Either way, this book has really helped me get started with a web project that I volunteered to take on but have been procrastinating for the past four months. I can't say that the HTML or CSS I'm writing is probably the cleanest at this very early stage, and I'm constantly having to go back and look up pretty much everything, but I have a website started, and I have this book to thank for that!
