Remember when serious browsing of the internet on anything other than a desktop or laptop would be laughable? Well, those days are long gong now. The great advancements made with smartphones, and the introduction of tablet devices, have made it now so that there is no assurance of what way any website will be viewed.
So the need of ensuring websites appear as close to pixel perfect in every browser, has now become a need to ensure every device gets a quality experience. What is there for a web designer and /or developer to do?
This book is an introduction into Responsive Web Design, best suited for those just beginning learning it. Responsive Web Design is the hottest, and most useful practice of the moment. Responsive Web Design cuts the development time down tremendously when trying to target different viewing devices, and better prepares your website for the future.
This eBook covers all you’ll need to know to get started turning your older websites into Responsive Websites, while providing a solid process for creating Responsive Websites. Starting out with a brief introduction into Responsive Web Design, and ending with great advice on how a quality responsive experience should be, it is a knowledge packed read throughout.

Are you using HTML5 yet? Well if you’re not, its understandable. HTML5 isn’t yet fully cross browser supported, and its not complete yet so changes/updates can easily appear suddenly. That’s good enough reasoning not to use HTML5, right? Wrong!
HTML5 is the future, and everyone should be developing with it right now. The improvements and advancements made with HTML5, were all done with the purpose of making a better coding experience and the Web a better place to browse. However, for those just venturing into HTML5 there is going to be a lot to take in. A guided tour of HTML5 is a great way of getting introduced to this new technology, that is sure to be around for a while.
This ebook is an introduction to HTML5, aimed at those looking to get a good first look at it. The book discusses the new features of HTML5, HTML5’s history, its semantic differences from HTML 4, its pros and cons, and why you should be using it now!

In art, its history is clearly defined into movements titled after the prominent style of that time. Web design is slightly different. The prominent styles defining moments in time for web design are better defined as trends. The dominant trends of the moment define the popular design practices and styles of the moment, while also showcasing what can be done for the web at the time.
As all know, the internet is constantly evolving form of technology. It is the job of web designers and developers to be able to maximize their work, within the limitations of the web. So each different web design trend movement, if you will, was heavily influenced by what could be done at the time.
After reading this thus far, an understandable question might be popping up in your head. How is knowing any of this going to benefit me? Well, there is an easy answer to that.
To be able to foresee the possible future, one must first have a grasp for the present. To have a grasp of the present, an understanding of the past is required.
Web Design Trends(2010, 2011, 2012) is a brief look at the web design trend movements of the two previous years, and our current one. The three years covered here will be looked at in four different sections. These sections being: code and technology, layout and usability, graphics and typography, and social and mobile media.
