Learning Web App Development

Learning Web App Development Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grasp the fundamentals of web application development by building a simple database-backed app from scratch, using HTML, JavaScript, and other open source tools. Through hands-on tutorials, this practical guide shows inexperienced web app developers how to create a user interface, write a server, build client-server communication, and use a cloud-based service to deploy the application.

Each chapter includes practice problems, full examples, and mental models of the development workflow. Ideal for a college-level course, this book helps you get started with web app development by providing you with a solid grounding in the process.

  • Set up a basic workflow with a text editor, version control system, and web browser
  • Structure a user interface with HTML, and include styles with CSS
  • Use JQuery and JavaScript to add interactivity to your application
  • Link the client to the server with AJAX, JavaScript objects, and JSON
  • Learn the basics of server-side programming with Node.js
  • Store data outside your application with Redis and MongoDB
  • Share your application by uploading it to the cloud with CloudFoundry
  • Get basic tips for writing maintainable code on both client and server

Synopsis:

Web application development comes in many different styles, making it hard for learners to figure out which path they should explore. Learning Web Application Development provides a foundation, introducing readers to the major components of client- and server-side web application development and demonstrates commonly used frameworks.

  • Uses a single programming language—JavaScript—for the client, the server, and the data storage solution
  • Includes a section on "mental models" in each chapter. These sections explicitly outline, through images and text, what goes through a programmers head while he/she is writing code.
  • Concludes, rather than starts, with the idea of the Model-­View-­Controller architecture.
