Hi, Bryson,

Do you have to buy software packages to go along with the lessons in the book? If so, which ones?

Hi, Phil,

We're looking at using D3 on our web site. Do you touch on the relationship between jQuery and D3 at all in your videos, or are they strictly the basics of jQuery?

Hello! This sounds like a great book. Is there any discussion in it of integration of html5 and css3 with other web development code, like java script, jquery, php, sql, etc.?

Hi, Elisabeth and Eric,

What are the things about HTML 5 that make it different and better than previous versions of HTML? Which changes do you think are the most helpful?

Thank you.

Hi, Budi,

I have been wanting to learn Java, but have been intimidated. I've heard learning Java described as "trying to eat an elephant (where do you start?)." Is your book aimed at true beginners, or would I need to have some knowledge of Java before reading it and working through the exercises?

Thank you.

Hi, Antony and Inayaili,

Your book on CSS for high traffic sites looks terrific. I work for a membership organization with over a million members, so we deal with high traffic on our web site.

Does the book give information about changes that need to be made to the CSS depending on the browser?

Thank you.

Hello!

I am starting from zero learning Android, so first, is this a book I can start with, or should I read another book(s) before reading this one? From what I've read about the book, I understand that it guides the reader through the construction of an application, which is wonderful. There's nothing like putting knowledge to practical use to make it stick.

What makes Android applications different from non-Android applications? I get the general vibe that they're better in some way, but I don't know how and why. Anything you can tell me on this topic would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi, Chad and Tammer,

Wow, I looked this book up at Amazon.com, and it looks fabulous. Can the antipatterns described in your book also be used, in a general way, for structuring good code in other programming languages, as well, or just for Ruby? What are the pros and cons of using Ruby over other web programming languages?

Thank you.

Wow, I'm so glad to be learning more about Agile and Scrum. I'd heard the term "Agile" before, but thought it referred to a software.

Does the book contain information on dealing with "Scrumbuts"? If not, can you point me toward some resources?

Do you get much feedback from people using it in their work organizations as a whole (not just in technical situations)? I can see practical applications for Agile and Scrum all over our organization, not just in IT.

Thank you.

Hello!

How does the Android platform differ from other mobile application platforms? What are the best things about it? What are the worst? Also, do I need to know Java in order to program in Android?

Thank you.

Hi, Christophe,

I can do a few things with JavaScript, but am by no means a skilled JavaScript programmer--definitely a beginner. Would your book be suitable for a JavaScript beginner, or would you recommend other reading as a prerequisite? If so, what would you suggest?

Thank you.

Hi, Bruce,

The title of your book sounds very exciting (yeah, I'm a geek). Which languages does it cover, and why did you choose those particular languages?

Thank you.

Hi, Christian,

What is unit testing, exactly, and how does it differ from other sorts of testing?

Thank you.
