Building a Web site for dummiesUser Review - Book Verdict
While web developers add pizzazz with Flash and other advanced tools, beginners still need guides on creating their first sites. Enter these two nonthreatening introductions, which assume knowledge of just the absolute basics of HTML. Dummies starts with a nice overview of how and why to plan a site's design and purpose before jumping into page creation, then summarizes HTML basics before moving into ways to make sites look and perform their best. It offers ideas for using easy add-ons like polls or guest books, venturing into e-commerce, and publishing and publicizing your site. Its CD includes trial and freeware graphic and web design software from multiple vendors, a clickable list of URLs mentioned in the book, and photos. Most appropriate for small businesses and others who can't afford professional design yet want to include features that visitors expect and will keep them coming back; recommended for all libraries. The smaller and less-thorough Dave's focuses on the basics. Readers may appreciate its straightforward, how-to approach and clear, concise coverage of using Cascading Style Sheets. "Dave's Advice" sidebars add relevant tips, and the real-world example of planning out and creating a web site for the book's own publisher (as well as nice examples of resolving problems when an initial layout doesn't work as planned) helps relate concepts to real-life situations. For all libraries.
Review: Building A Web Site For DummiesUser Review - Goodreads
I thought it was a good primer on building a small web site. i picked it up to get a better understanding of the terminologies. Marginally helpful for understanding terms used in enterprise website build.
