Most of the readings for this course will be available online, but there is one required text - Web Design in a Nutshell , 3rd Edition.
It should be available at Student Stores. It is useful not only for the topics we will be covering in class, but also as a reference tool for future thinking about web applications. Be sure to get the 3rd Edition.
This book is also available for free to UNC students through Safari Books Online.
To quote the publisher's web site:
Other online readings
These will include links to a variety of additional resources, to more fully explain or expand on topics discussed in the notes. Some of the linked sources may include:
- online documentation from UNC's Information Technology Services,
- other information sources available via the Web,
- or readings that will be sent to you as email attachments or as blog posts.
Pay attention to the schedule and to the class blog. Session notes will be posted prior to each class and you would do well to look over the links prior to coming to class. If there is something that you should read prior to class, it will be included on the session notes for the session prior to the class you will be preparing for.
