This brief but important book lays out a specific five-step strategy--called the Core Process--that can always be applied to the development of Web sites and fine tuned to almost any type of project. Each step--defining the project; developing site structure; visual design and testing; production and QA; and launch and beyond--contain three related but distinct tracks. The text begins with a brief overview of each of the steps, then delves deeper into each with detailed explanations as well as specific forms and project management strategies. This book does not cover back-end server side programming. Instead, it focuses primarily on the visual conventional components of a Web site.
Authors Kelly Goto and Emily Cotler compiled this book in an attractive, easy to read format. This process guide uses numerous full-colour screen shots to illustrate site examples, as well as plenty of site diagrams and sample forms. The book even has a companion Web site with downloadable forms in PDF format to put the Core Process into immediate action. --Stephen W Plain --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
