From the Author:

If you are going to get only one book on web development, this is the one.  It's a big book, but that's because I put everything in it that you'll need.Start from the beginning with solid code-based development. No tricks, no gimmicks, nothing to buy. Learn how easy the technology of the web really is. The current edition focuses on XHTML strict with a preview of HTML5.Use CSS to make your pages look great. If you can imagine it, you can make it happen. Many web development books stop at the visual elements (HTML and CSS) but that's where this one starts to pick up steam.  Once you can build a basic page, learn how you can use JavaScript to (literally) make your pages sing and dance.If you're going to go into commercial web development (or want to be a serious amateur) you'll need to learn how to program on the web server. I provide a complete mini-book on PHP programming, which is among the most marketable skills anywhere today.Most commercial web development is really about data. I provide a mini-book on how to think through data problems using the very popular MySQL and phpMyAdmin platforms.Finally I walk you through practical parts of running your own web business: How to work with a web hosting company, how to set up your own test servers, how to use content management systems, and how to work with clients.Best of all, absolutely everything you need is right here in the book (and on my companion web site.) I only recommend free and open source software, so you won't need to buy anything else, and you can use any computer you want.  I can't wait to see what you create!  Drop me a line at andy aharrisbooks.net if you have any questions.
