1 Review
Over the last few years, Web technology has grown so rapidly that it is hard for interested readers to learn and keep up with the techniques. It would be extremely useful to have a single book that collectively describes not only the underlying areas from which internet technology derives its solutions, but also details the specific solutions to important applications on the World Wide Web. Foundations of Web Technology covers the basics of Web technology while being specialized enough to add value to experienced professionals working in this field. Most books on the Web focus on programmatic aspects of languages such as Java, JavaScript, or description of standards such as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) or Wireless Markup Language (WML). A book that covers the concepts behind the infrastructure of the Web would be indispensable to a wide range of audiences interested in learning how the Web works, how techniques in Web technology can be applied to their own problem, and what the emergent technological trends in these areas are.
Foundations of Web Technology ranges from fundamental areas such as information retrieval and data markup to applications such as web search, instant messaging, mobile access and web services. It assimilates the different technologies that make up the foundation of Web technology. After reading this book, one will be able to grasp the fundamental techniques that power the Web and be able to apply them practically towards building internet applications, in addition to gaining deep insight into the latest research in this relatively new field. Foundations of Web Technology will be useful for a number of years to come since Web technology has matured considerably, and the concepts discussed in this book will continue to be applied universally.
Foundations of Web Technology is designed to meet the needs of practitioners and researchers in industry, and as a secondary text for upper undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science and Engineering.
