A good introductory book on Web programming by the Deitels Oct. 18 2007
By calvinnme - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is much better with more detail and in a more interesting format than the Deitels' other books on computer technology. It has been so in the previous three editions, and this edition continues the tradition while updating the contents to reflect the new technologies on both the client and the server that are available for rich Internet applications. It has a very good introduction to Javascript for the novice programmer as well as a good explanation of Ajax. In fact, it's one of the clearer explanations of that technology that I've seen. I really liked the section on Adobe Flash CS3 and how the authors illustrated the usage of the application by building a simple interactive game. The appendix is very useful with information on XHTML tags,
Javascript, and various coding systems. Very much recommended for someone starting out programming who wants to know what programming on the Internet is like in the year 2007 without already being an expert desktop programmer in C++ or Java. If you're not familiar with the Deitels' approach to technical books, they favor an example-based approach with lots of recipes in numbered steps and "live-code" examples that are usually color-coded so that certain portions of the code are highlighted as the text discusses each portion. For this subject the approach works well and keeps things moving. The product description does not show a table of contents, so I do that next:

1 Introduction to Computers and the Internet 2
2 Web Browser Basics: Internet Explorer and Firefox 28
3 Dive Into Web 2.0 50

Great, thorough, everything in one place Oct. 5 2007
By Devon Cayer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book goes indepth into every possible web development code/means/software it's simply amazing. I have good experience in C++ but none in web development, this book is akin to savitch's book on C++, it's very well done and very in depth I would highly recommend it to anyone who is eager to learn to do web design.

Wide Range of Topics Covered but Overpriced Dec 27 2008
By The Dude - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Your better off buying books specific to the technology your trying to learn. You'll get more details. This book offers a wide range of topics but doesn't go into necessary details for each one. Hard read also and expensive. This was a required book for a college course.

Fun! Sept. 5 2010
By Student - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a required book for a class on web-centric programming. I am really enjoying the programs! It starts at a very basic level of programming, and builds on each concept as you move through the book. Not only does the author introduce the controls and expressions, but they explain (sometimes in detail) why you would want to use one over another if similar options exist. I've taken quite a few courses on C++ programming, so coding in JavaScript was an easy transition.

Used for Univ. Course Aug. 25 2010
By Champika - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers alot of topics and for someone who has previous background in programming, will it very informative with lots of examples. For me as a beginner in this field i found that examples sometimes assumed things i didnt know.Hence i found it a bit difficult to comprehend some concepts and put in to practise. My take is that for a beginner its best to have atleast a basic grasp of the technologies discussed in the book before dwelving in to this book. I am sure then it would be a very good read.
