An Introduction to Web Development and Programming

The Missing Link: An Introduction to Web Development and Programming provides a broad yet informative overview of web page creation. The textbook presents concepts clearly and visually. However, while concepts of web development are fairly simple, implementation can be challenging. Therefore, the book allows beginners to follow along step by step so they can practice web development on their own. It describes all the different processes that web applications go through from concept to completion. It also provides readers with many tools, not just a few, so they can understand the broad scope of ways to solve problems when programming.

An Introduction to Web Development and Programming splits into sections and chapters. First, the textbook covers basic such as the history of the Internet, current trends, web servers, and fundamental design and development. Then, students will learn about the language used in programming. This includes creating HTML files, page and text layout, forms, tables, graphics and navigation, which are the basic components of a web page. The textbook also gives useful tips on coding for media and mobile devices, as well as styling fonts. The following chapters explain more tools for customizing, such as JavaScript and CSS. The book also dives into data and site maps. It wraps up with tables of tables and figures, which are handy references to peek back on periodically.
