Praise for the First Edition

Natalie MacLees does a brilliant job of getting the momentum going and teaching you the essentials and best practices to make your way into this critical part of the web today. She doesn’t waste her time with diatribes, and instead focuses on teaching the fundamentals and critical time-saving methodologies — like employing plug-ins in your projects.

Natalie should be congratulated for making a potentially impenetrable and dry subject accessible to a novice like me. The author’s passion for the subject is clear, and despite their expertise the content is digestible without going either too slow or fast. Coders are often much better at making things work “under the hood” than making sites visually sparkle. This book provides an important bridge between code and cosmetics.

Even for persons with little experience with web development the examples are easy to follow. Everything is explained in detail and all the code and plugins that are used in the book are available to the reader.
