This book teaches the way I learn. It starts with an overview of the entire subject and then goes into each part in depth. The overview gives me a structure to hang the in depth knowledge on. When an author goes into depth without giving an overarching understanding it's hard to see how the in depth information relates to the whole picture.
This book was just what I was looking for. After years of watching web developers do their magic, I wanted to dive in and learn what it was all about. This book was absolutely perfect - from cover to cover it's filled with clear, instructive, chatty coverage of just about every front end tool and technology I've ever heard of. The samples and exercises were great to exercise every concept - usually supplemented with thing I came up with on my own to try. I now feel I have a very solid foundation in front end development and am ready to take it further. The author is clearly fully up to date with the latest trends, but also covers the foundations with remarkable thoroughness. Just great. My only complaint is that the publisher's site makes it just about impossible to submit errata (there is some, but not much for a book with this heft). Thank you, Julie, for very many enjoyable hours over the last few months!
Explanations moved too slowly and didn't seem to follow a logical progression. Too wordy for a beginner's book and not enough content for a reference. And frankly, just a dry read.Clicking on code examples stranded my reader in the appendix with no way to navigate back to the section I was reading.Can you return digital content?
Don't know good or bad but extremely boring to read. Since I am not a beginner it was just boring to go on reading something in which author has made little effort to make a connect with user. Couldn't have the patience to finish and left midway. An absolute no for someone having basic knowledge of the subjects.
It was exactly the book that I needed for my college course. I wish I would of bought the paperback version instead of the Kindle book.
Just what I needed for school. I recommend for anyone wanting to become a web programmer.
Enjoyed every chapter. Now rocking on client side scripting.
