This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Takes me back to Java Network Programming and university days. Congrats on the new book, it's about time we saw an end to some of the crazy HTML and CSS that comes back from design agencies... maybe this will help...
Hey guys, I haven't been lurking around too much but when I got the email about this book I had to stop over and check it out. Is there a chapter list on Amazon? I can't seem to find one. Any excerpts? I read the chapter 3 stuff that you posted on your blog and it looked great.
At any rate, what do you see as the largest problem in people writing bad HTML? From what I've read on your blog I'm already doing these standard and basic methods of writing well formed code. How in depth do you go? How much deeper do you go than standards compliance, well-formed code, doc types and the like? I have yet to jump onto the XML train as I've been using JSON and Serve Side SQL for my data processing since starting in web development a year ago.
For someone who already writes clean code by hand and pays attention to these details and does not really do anything in the ways of XML, is there anything in this book for me?
