Secrets of a Web Developer
Over the years students have asked/suggested/cajoled that I write a book with the information I present in my classes. For starters I decided to pull together all of the tutorials I have written for my Web Development course.

The Secrets of a Web Developer is now available for $39.00. You can view some excerpts from the book as well as the complete table of contents out on the site.

There are over 300 pages covering all the major aspects of web page development with lots of screen shots and graphics and step-by-step instructions.

  • The
    Web and the Internet
  • XHTML markup
  • Page styling with CSS
  • Page layout
    using CSS
  • SEO – Search Engine Optimization
  • Design Principles and the Design Process
  • Web Marketing
  • An introduction to JavaScript

These tutorials were written for anyone interested in learning
how to build web sites with no prior knowledge of programming or HTML.

This is an entry-level book and all you need is an understanding file
management and basic typing skills.

The tools are all free. You will need a color-coded text editor (such as NotePad++)
and a browser. FireFox is recommended because of the many add-on tools that are available.
