How much I liked it: 7/10Back to Book List
This book was not an introduction for me. I have been working with HTML and CSS for some time. The reason I decided to give it a read is because I was having problems with CSS. More specifically I was nit sure if I was doing everything correctly.
I’m not sure this will be making sense to people, but because I was using a lot of margins and paddings, the website layout felt a little forced and not sustainable. Meaning that it is very possible for the layout to break under closer inspection, by a customer/user on a different device.
I wanted to see if there are any best practices or things I don’t know.
This is what I learnt
This book is great introduction to the world of simple web development. However, if you know the absolute basics (like
<p> is a paraghraph where you put text and
<h1> is a header) and know your way around Google (and Stackoverflow you should be able to code up a simple website on your own.
That said, it won’t harm to skim through the book. It is written well and read very easily.
