  1. In Topic: Can You please suggest me some books for HTML Designing?

    Posted 11 Oct 2013

    I completely agree with you on the coursework being valuable for learning all things web, however, you can easily find these resources online. I mean, even W3schools.comhas value to a beginning web developer (although I would suggest that once you are grounded in the basics, you move onto better resources, like the Mozilla Developers Network Mozilla Developers Link). The question was what texts are valuable, and my answer to that question is that online resources are a better, more up to date, and usually cheaper alternative to buying and reading books.

    I don't discount books completely, like I said, they provide a good reference, but rather than spend money on them, and take the time to read them, just look for developer tool networks and learn there. In HTML/CSS, the basics never really change; a <head> tag will probably always be the same, linking documents to a webpage won't change, there isn't much to cover beyond that. As far as design, no book is going to keep you current better than online information, or developer blogs. It just isn't possible.

    In addition to what BetaWar said, Web Design and Development changes so quickly now, that the only thing you would get out of reading almost any book is the basic foundations of HTML/CSS design. While that might sound like a worthy endeavor for you, honestly I would suggest picking at/copying source code(for non-commerical use of course) and messing with it. Just google something simple, "Cool website designs", then right-click and view source. See what's going on. That's how you should learn web development. Books are mainly used for reference.
