9780130161437: Internet and World Wide Web: How to Program

This innovative new book in the Deitel's How to Program series offers an alternative to traditional introductory programming courses. The fundamentals of programming no longer have to be taught in languages like C, C++, and Java. With Internet/Web markup languages (such as HTML, Dynamic HTML, and XML) and scripting languages (such as JavaScript® and VBScript®), one can teach the fundamentals of programming "wrapped in the Web page metaphor." The book offers a thorough treatment of programming concepts, with programs that yield visible or audible results in Web pages and Web-based applications. The book discusses effective Web page design, server- and client-side scripting, ActiveX® controls, and the essentials of electronic commerce.

Review:

A solid jack-of-all-trades reference, The Complete Internet and WWW Programming Training Course comes straight from the school of college textbooks--and your outlook will determine whether it is for you. If you find the terse writing, heavy reliance on spot illustrations and strict end-of-chapter exercises that characterise textbooks to be helpful, this package will be invaluable to you because it provides a lot of content and is a perfect set for the corporate trainer or teacher. But if you are looking for a chatty style, in-depth coverage on specific topics, or lots of asides on how things work in the real world, you may want to look elsewhere.

The book itself proceeds in a very linear fashion, and has evidently been written in a course style, starting with the basics, each chapter building on the last. In this it works nicely. It starts off with simple HTML and table structures and then moves into the simplest of scripting languages (JavaScript, natch), spending five chapters and various exercises teaching the reader the basics of programming and programming techniques. Variables, arrays, input methodologies, functions and simple object-oriented concepts are all covered clearly and concisely in various small programs. Once JavaScript has been thoroughly explained, the book moves on to the more global performance-enhancing suite of using "Dynamic HTML", covers multimedia and then ends up on the heavy-hitting topics of client-side scripting, databases and electronic commerce. When you finish, you will definitely have an industrial-strength overview and understanding of Web programming issues under your belt.

The CD-ROM is somewhat of a disappointment; it is mostly an expanded version of the book transported to HTML format. You will find code samples, which are always helpful, but no examples of live Web pages with the code already programmed in and the questions in the end-of-chapter live examinations are ridiculously easy. There is a lot of content here, and this CD-ROM would be ideal for business and mass-training purposes, where an easily portable and wide-ranging format is necessary, but it may be a bit of a disappointment for the individual user. --William Steinmetz
