Three Must-Read Books for Web Developers.

3.28.2013

Here are 3 books that I'd recommend as critical for folks just learning, or re-learning, web development. Each of them is a full of head-starts and tricks that practiced developers are already using.

  1. Bulletproof Web Design - Dan Cederholm: This is a compendium of practical build walk-throughs with seamless best practice advice.
  2. Smashing CSS - Eric Meyer: This is filled with brilliant modern CSS techniques, but I wish there was a second edition to fix many of the typos and silly errors present in the first edition.
  3. Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja - John Resig and Bear Bibeault: Old JavaScript books are pretty crusty and out of touch, and you'll need something modern to get you going quickly. This is the one.
