9780321429193: Codin' for the Web: A Designer's Guide to Developing Dynamic Web Sites

EVEN THE MOST SKILLED WEB DESIGNERS can find the complexities of creating a full-functioned Web site to be a daunting task. Here to help designers create sites that not only work, but work well and are easy to update and maintain is an easy-to-read guide to Web programming basics from best-selling author Charles Wyke-Smith. Just as architects need to understand building materials and their properties, Web designers need to understand the code that serves as the foundation of their sites. Wyke-Smith ensures they do by teaching designers that all dynamic Web sites consist of essentially three components: a browser interface, Web server middleware, and a database. The guide covers everything from Web coding concepts and principles to building sites, designing visual interfaces, developing databases, developing middleware, ensuring a good user experience (through good code!), testing and debugging, and more.

  • Create dynamic Web sites that provide real-time responses to user inputs
  • Understand the basic structures of all coding languages, such as variables, functions, conditionals, loops, and objects
  • Use the power of PHP to program the business rules of your site
  • Learn techniques for validating forms to reject erroneous or malicious data
  • Import and export data from other applications via at les
  • Build and query database tables using SQL to manage the data generated by your site’s activity
  • Develop a simple content management system
  • Develop a password-protected members-only area of your Web site
  • Build a template-based Web site with dynamic navigation
