"Until now, my websites looked great but have been coded with what seems like 'duct-tape and bubble-gum' methods, just for appearances and not for professionalism or compliance. This book taught me all that is possible with HTML and CSS coding]]. What a game changer!" That's what one web designer posted about a previous edition of Murach's HTML5 and CSS3. Now, this 4th Edition updates and improves all the HTML and CSS content in the book...and it adds coverage of Flexible Box and Grid Layout, two new CSS3 ways to implement page layouts. So whether you're a web designer, a JavaScript programmer, a server-side programmer, or a rookie, this book delivers all the HTML and CSS skills that you need on the job. This book begins with an 8-chapter hands-on course that teaches you HTML and CSS from scratch, including the latest HTML5 and CSS3 features. This short course ends with a chapter that teaches you how to use fluid design and media queries to implement Responsive Web Design so your pages will look good and work right on any screen, from phone to tablet to desktop. After that, the unique design of this book lets you go on to any other chapter to learn new skills whenever you need them. For example, chapters 9 and 10 show you how to use Flexible Box and Grid Layout. Chapter 13 shows you how to work with forms and data validation. Chapter 14 shows you how to enhance a site with video clips. Chapter 16 shows you how to use CSS3 transitions, transforms, and animations.

I cant count how many PHP books I have purchased over the years trying to learn the language. Murachs was the first book that helped me grasp the concepts and got me onto actually scripting in PHP. Thats what one developer posted on the first edition of Murachs PHP and MySQL. Now, this 3rd Edition does a better-than-ever job of delivering the skills you need to develop database-driven websites using PHP and MySQL, the way todays top web professionals do. Section 1 is a quick-start course that shows how to use the latest versions of PHP, MySQL (or MariaDB), and the Apache web server to build your first PHP applications. Right from the start, youll learn to create applications that conform to the MVC pattern, so theyll be easier to maintain as they grow. In addition, youll learn how to create applications that prevent SQL injection attacks and guard against XSS attacks. Section 2 takes you deeper into PHP by covering the skills youll use every day, like how to work with form data, dates, arrays, sessions, cookies, functions, objects, regular expressions, and exceptions. Likewise, Section 3 dives into MySQL, teaching you how to design and create a database, as well as how to access and maintain database data from your PHP programs. Finally, Section 4 teaches you important web programming skills like how to secure web pages, send email, upload files, and process images. Along the way, youll find out how to take advantage of PHP 7 enhancements like scalar data type declarations and improved error handling, as well as new operators and functions. Complete sample applications and chapter exercises provide training support throughout. A great choice for any developer who wants to master PHP without a lot of frustration and unnecessary expense.
Today, jQuery is used in over 60% of the million most-visited websites, and that makes it one of the technologies that every web developer should master. The problem is that jQuery is difficult to learn, especially for those with limited programming experience. But now, this new edition of our jQuery book makes it easier than ever to learn how to use jQuery to create the dynamic user interfaces, fast response times, and special effects that todays users expect. In brief, sections 2 and 3 of this book present the essential jQuery and jQuery UI (User Interface) skills for developing professional jQuery applications. With those skills, you will be able to add all of the popular jQuery features to your web pages: image swaps, image rollovers, slide shows, accordions, tabs, carousels, and much more. Then, section 4 shows you how to use Ajax and JSON to get data from a web server and add it to a web page without reloading the page. It also shows how to use Ajax and JSON with the APIs for websites like Flickr and Google Maps and with HTML5 APIs like Geolocation, Web Storage, and Web Workers. What about section 1? It provides a four-chapter crash course in the JavaScript skills that you need to use jQuery. That means you do not need to know JavaScript before you start using this book, and that makes this the right book for programmers who are not familiar with JavaScript, as well as for programming novices. This section also becomes the ideal reference for the JavaScript thats used for the jQuery applications in this book or for any jQuery application. The last section of this book shows you how to use jQuery Mobile to develop mobile websites. This requires little or no programming, and it is a great alternative when its impractical to rebuild an established website with Responsive Web Design.
Today, JavaScript is used in 89.9% of all websites, including the most heavily-trafficked sites like Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Amazon. That is why every web developer should know how to use JavaScript. The problem is that JavaScript is surprisingly difficult to learn, not only for programming novices but also for experienced programmers. But now, Murachs JavaScript makes it easier than ever to become an accomplished JavaScript programmer. To make that possible, section 1 of this book presents a six-chapter course in JavaScript that gets you off to a great start. This section works for programming novices as well as experienced programmers because it lets you set your own pace. When you finish this section, you will be able to write, test and debug JavaScript applications of your own. Then, section 2 builds on that base by presenting the additional skills that every JavaScript programmer must have. That includes working with arrays and web storage, creating and using your own object types in object-oriented applications, using regular expressions for data validation, and much more. For many developers, sections 1 and 2 will be all that they need to know. But for those who want to move on to the expert level, section 3 presents the skills that will get you there. That includes skills like how to bulletproof your applications by using closures, namespaces, and modules; how to make your functions more useful by using callbacks; and how to use JSON to transmit and store data. Then, the last chapter in this section introduces you to jQuery and shows you how it can make your JavaScript code even better.

Learn about the most important concepts surrounding web development and demystify jQuery. This book gives you the confidence to abandon your jQuery crutches and walk freely with the power of the web API and JavaScript. Beyond jQuery doesn't just throw code at you - everything is explained in detail from the perspective of a jQuery developer. jQuery is often injected into web applications and libraries with no logical reason for pulling it in as a dependency. Many web developers don’t really know when they need to use jQuery, and when they don’t - it's just a standard step when setting up a new library or web application. But relying solely on jQuery as your window to the web leaves large gaps in your knowledge. This in turn results in frustration when the abstraction that jQuery provides “leaks” and exposes you to the native aspects of the browser. This book educates developers, reveals the magic behind jQuery, helps you solve common problems without it, and gives you more confidence to embrace the power of the web API and standardized JavaScript. What You'll Learn Use the web API and standardized JavaScript Determine when you need jQuery and when you don't Review common JavaScript utility functions Work with HTML elements Who This Book Is For Any web developer who is interested in learning how to live without jQuery, and deepening their understanding of web development.
