Web Development Foundations
About the Bundle
What is Web Development? A huge field consisting of a great number of technologies, tools, and processes. What is at the core of Web Development? HTML and CSS. The “Web Development Foundations” bundle includes perhaps the largest web development glossary there is, The Web Development Glossary, a brief collection of real-world HTML snippets to be analyzed and improved, Upgrade Your HTML, and an introduction into the craft of CSS and its optimization, CSS Optimization Basics, all by ex-Googler and O’Reilly author Jens Oliver Meiert (meiert.com).
The Web Development Glossary
More Than 2,000 Key Terms for Developers
The glossary then goes beyond web development, touching computer science, design, typography, usability and user experience, information as well as project management, other disciplines of interest and relevance to the modern developer. It goes beyond, encouraging to stay curious to learn more about the Web and the people creating and using it. And still it is a glossary, of a couple of thousand terms for developers, leaning on (and giving back to) Wikipedia and the MDN Web Docs.
👉 This is the book if you choose to extend and validate your web and software development knowledge.
CSS Optimization Basics
