Basics of Web Design & AJAX

Ajax (Advanced Java Script and Ajax XML Access) is a client-side web technology that enables web pages to exchange data with servers without refreshing the entire page. AJAX utilizes HTML, XML, JavaScript and JavaHttpRequest in combination to update parts of websites asynchronously.

Ajax can make websites feel more responsive by giving the impression that information is being updated instantly. When users click a button to view a news article, they expect to immediately see their new data appear; if AJAX can’t deliver what users expect immediately, Ajax displays a loading spinner while data is being fetched in the background.

Combining AJAX and Flash can be an extremely powerful combination for creating more interactive websites. Kongregate, for instance, combines these technologies to update player profiles as they win badges while playing their favorite games using Ajax / Flash technology, so players can track their own progress over time.

AJAX stands apart from traditional screen-based systems by enabling users to complete tasks on one webpage using richer interactions features than previous forms. Furthermore, AJAX helps reduce bandwidth use and page load times by restricting how often requests are forwarded to servers.

The 10th edition of this text teaches students the fundamentals of Web design with HTML5 and CSS stylesheet. The emphasis placed upon new layout systems such as Flexbox (CSS Flexible Layout Module) and Grid Layout provides a solid basis for further topics in web development, making this text suitable for introductory courses in Web design or development.

Utilizing hands-on practice exercises and case studies of successful Web sites as motivation, this text presents all the essential lessons required for building and promoting effective sites online. With an even blend of hard skills (HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript) and soft skills (Web design, eCommerce platforms, and promotion strategies), all Web developers will learn what is needed.

Basics of Web Design & JavaScript

Internet content comes in various forms – text, audio, video and images – that must be organized for end-users with varied technical expertise and experiences to access easily. HTML, CSS and JavaScript all play an essential part here.

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a markup language designed to describe page structure and style, without being considered a true programming language itself. While not essential for front end web development projects, web developers must become acquainted with its basics before progressing further with languages like JavaScript.

Students enrolled in this textbook will learn the fundamentals of HTML and CSS through hands-on, step-by-step interactive exercises designed to introduce them to key web design and development concepts. Developer tools and browser features will also be introduced so students can make sense of their code created during development. Finally, all their skills gained throughout semester are put together into a final project to showcase everything learned!

As its title implies, this web design textbook introduces learners to the “holy trinity” of coding languages — HTML, CSS and JavaScript – that enable web designers to build websites that are both functional and beautiful.

This new edition provides up-to-date coverage of HTML5, expanded coverage on designing for mobile devices and much more. Students will learn the benefits of responsive Web design in terms of creating better user experiences across platforms and devices.

The Pearson eText provides an intuitive learning experience designed for mobile devices that enables students to highlight and take notes as they read. Teachers can track student progress with this eBook’s companion website that features instructor manuals, test banks and additional resources like videos and PowerPoint presentations – providing valuable insights into student engagement with course materials.
