The Web Platform
Building a Solid Stack of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: March 2014

JavaScript, HTML, and CSS provide strong foundations for websites, applications, and content. This unique combination gives developers the power to create document or application structure and content, use native-speed tools to style and even animate that content, and customize behavior and interaction. Though web structures are very different from traditional programming models, they offer unique strengths and opportunities. Their evolution is continuous, helping to drive a new generation of applications that are reshaping the classic desktop market and challenging native mobile contenders.

In The Web Platform: Building a Solid Stack of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, O'Reilly Senior Editor and Fluent Conference Chair Simon St.Laurent explores the possibilities that open when you take web technologies seriously, applying them to a wide variety of projects. Topics include:

  • HTML: Moving Beyond the Standard
  • The Power of Markup
  • CSS Selectors Have Superpowers
  • JavaScript: Not as Expected
  • From JavaScript to Declarative Markup
  • Toward Responsive Web Programming
  • Will JavaScript Take Over the Programming World?

      Comments about oreilly The Web Platform:

      The contents doesn't have a lot to do with building a solid stack. It seems more a cursory glance at 3 technologies of the web with some historical background information.
