Today more and more traditional developers are moving into the world of Web application development. Proper use of client-side scripts, style sheets, and XML are essential for building high-performance Web applications that provide a rich user experience.
If you are a professional desktop developer (never mind your programming language) and want to start developing for the web, this book is for you. The book assumes you haven't done much client-side Web development and starts from the beginning. In more than 15 chapters, each one starting with "What Will This Cover?" - to explain the purpose of the upcoming chapter; Deborah always uses very clear explanations of the topics covered in the chapter. Each chapter ends with a "Try It" section; it provides a facility for you to practice what you are reading.
To name just a few chapters: "Introduction to Web Development", ..., "Using Style Sheets", ... "Using WebForms", ... "Using Cookies", ..."XSL", "Overview of Server-Side Techniques". As you can see Deborah really tries to cover all the key technologies used when building Web applications and really does a great job.
Again, I think this is a very useful book to have on your bookshelf. Anyone developing Web applications using client side techniques (and who isn't?) will find something useful in the book. It's obvious that in order for a single book to cover so much ground, sometimes there isn't quite as much technical detail as you might like, but each chapter ends with a section that provides some additional resource suggestions by way of books, articles, and links to Web resources.
