Development, not design
on 30 November 2013
Bit confused why this book is called "How to design websites" when it doesn't have much to say on things like wireframing, UX design or graphic design.
What it provides is a very basic overview of some basic web development areas, but none in enough detail to master them.
A lack of concern for SEO (use Flash! use Frames! host on wordpress.com!) and security issues (install 3rd party plug-ins!) suggests to me that this is a designer writing about development rather than the designer-writing-about-design book I'd hoped for.
(I am reading the 2011 edition and am only half way through... it might get better)
