Everything you need to know to create professional web sites is right here. Learning Web Design starts from the beginning — defining how the Web and web pages work — and builds from there. By the end of the book, you’ll have the skills to create multi-column CSS layouts with optimized graphic files, and you’ll know how to get your pages up on the Web.

This thoroughly revised edition teaches you how to build web sites according to modern design practices and professional standards. Learning Web Design explains:

  • Everything you need to know about web standards — (X)HTML, DTDs, and more
  • Cascading Style Sheets — formatting text, colors and backgrounds, using the box model, page layout, and more
  • All about web graphics, and how to make them lean and mean through optimization
  • The site development process, from start to finish
  • Getting your pages on the Web — hosting, domain names, and FTP

The book includes exercises to help you to learn various techniques, and short quizzes to make sure you’re up to speed with key concepts. If you’re interested in web design, Learning Web Design is the place to start.

  • Hello, what entire upload an video.? This video was very interesting. I really appreciate this video.I m sure to be very useful for me to investing.Thank your valuable information.

  • First time commenter long tkme viewer, I love this show I watch it

  • That is actually a solid idea. I think it would be great to do an episode on brand strategy that helps remove the “abstract” from it.

  • Thank you. Much appreciated.

  • : ) Yeah – I like it without the timer too. Lot less stress. I can breath more.

  • Glad you like it. That is our goal – to have our viewers drive the show.
    Keep on giving us feedback!

  • i meant the former but both would be cool… come to think of it, theres a part in the documentary “the greatest movie ever sold” where they break down morgan’s personal brand and advise him to contact potential sponsors of similar attributes… interesting excercise

  • Are you referring to me repeating the topic and the questions at the beginning?

  • I agree. You are saying to show the difference between styles based on the attributes that describe them? Or how to decide of visual language based on “brand attributes”? That is a great episode idea.

  • great episode. really appreciate that you’re listened to your viewers and put changes into life in just one week.

  • Great show fellas I will say that I like it without the timer.

  • Great video !

  • I wish you had put up a single slide grid of icons of the same item in different styles … here’s the thing Jose, maybe you and Aure know exactly what simple and bubbly and corporate means but you gotta remember not all of us are wired into the visual language as you are…

  • Too much repeating the same info. What…is there an echo in here?
