also photoshop gimp books I am horrible with graphics
sorry for sloppy post I stayed up all night reading completely through
just for the sake on continuity i’m pasting in what i wrote in the previous thread:
@JustinBeaird, your second round of questions would probably be better off as a new thread, but since you asked nicely i would recommend you avoid w3schools as much as possible. a lot of their info is out of date or just plain wrong (see: w3fools).
instead of that bookmark Mozilla’s webdev docs, and save yourself a lot of headaches.
as for up to date books on web development, imo you should try to read everything that ABookApart publishes.
i also just recently got Aaron Gustafson’s Adaptive Web Design, and its full of great info on the many ways to apply progressive enhancement to your work.March 24, 2012 at 8:48 am #99837VermaasParticipant
You should buy “Introducing HTMl5” of Remy Sharp and Bruce Lawson. It’s an eye-opening book. I’ve also got all the books of abookapart.com, but i’m not crazy about them.. (haven’t read them all, but the first three where a bit disappointing).March 24, 2012 at 8:22 pm #99874WCMillerMember
I recommend Dan Cederholm’s books. Just recently got his Bulletproof Web Design (Third Edition).
While it’s about 75% a repeat of earlier versions (the remainder touches on using CSS3 features), it’s still one of the most valuable books I’ve come across.March 26, 2012 at 12:10 am #99926ccc630Member
Sitepoint also usually produces very useful, up-to-date books.March 26, 2012 at 7:33 am #99930tobeeornotMemberMarch 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm #99970CameronDuthieParticipant
The book apart series is a must have for the web designer’s bookshelf, so handy and to the point.
and Andy Clarke’s Hardboiled Web design is one i find myself constantly grabbing for -http://hardboiledwebdesign.com/January 24, 2016 at 11:33 pm #237231
What would be the best up to date books now? In 2016.January 26, 2016 at 12:31 am #237304
Can anyone offer me help with this?January 26, 2016 at 2:05 am #237305ShikkedielParticipant
I’ve been wondering why your original topic got closed…
My other thoughts are that a book doesn’t have to be that recent, as long as it describes the currently implemented CSS3 spec at least. So a 2012 book should be fine. Anything that would try to keep ‘up to date’ to what’s actually supported by browsers at the moment would soon be outdated ’cause that’s in constant change.January 26, 2016 at 2:18 am #237307
Thank you :)
