General thread for all things web design.
I'm putting together a e-book collection for a friend.
So far I have:
- O'Reilly - Web Design in a Nutshell
- SAMS - Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours
- Schifreen - The Web Book
- Rockable Press - From Photoshop to HTML: How to slice Your Designs Like a Pro
What am I missing?
Don't Make Me Think - Krugman (might be a little outdated but still very sound for the non-designer)
Cool. Thanks, guys.
Do you think I need to scare him with PHP and SQL yet, or should I let him get comfortable with basic web stuff first?
Hello, Runny! I have already gifted you stuff from my library, but let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
It's not a website at the moment, he just wants to do some learning.
I'm going to suggest installing a virtual server like XAMPP and just having a play to get himself accustomed to coding.
He is my sister's boyfriend and cooks a mean curry, so I am wanting to help out.
Added to the list:
- Powell - HTML & CSS: The Complete Reference
At some point, when I am fat and rich, I will actually go offline for a couple of months and read all of these...
- CSS - The missing Manual - David Sawyer McFarland
- PHP Solutions : Dynamic Web Design made easy - David Powers
The above two are good contenders for the list, I feel.
Btw - great to see this thread!
Will add the missing manual to the list, but think I'll hold off the PHP for now. I don't want to frighten the poor boy off before he get the chance to do his first "Hello world!"
[edited to say why I recommend it]
Excellent. Anything to get me out of drawn-out Skype tutorials.
I am lazy.
Thanks for the offer of help, Pixie. I'll [hopefully] have time for more HTML/CSS learning shenanigans by the end of next week.
Good-o. I'm in another one of my knowledge-harvesting binges, so I'm sure I'll have something worthwhile by then.
