How to build awesome browser applications that scale to mobile devices, even if you've never programmed beforeDo you want to build browser applications that make people say "wow!" when they see it? Of course you do! I do too. How about apps that look great on a mobile device and size automatically for different screens? Yep, I want that too. :)Experiment with the code on the Companion Web SiteThe book has tons of Bootstrap example source code which you can tweak and play with. It's all available at http://joyofbootstrap.com/code.php where you can even edit the code without downloading it. (Go ahead, try it now!) The book will walk you through all the hard code and explain how it works.The Bootstrap book for you....I write books that are easy to read and easily digestible. I group the chapters into easy, logical concepts that work together but still stand on their own. I write in a fun, conversational style that makes technical topics approachable for beginners. When it makes sense I build on early concepts to take you into progressively more advanced (cool) topics and exercises.My books don't cover every function and nuance-- those books are too much like bricks for my taste-- instead my books are relatively thin with the goal to launch you into a subject as quickly as possible and empower you with the basics right away. We'll also continue to use the successful metaphor of "Sam's Used Cars", a fictional web site that gives you a context in which to learn along. We'll take a plain and boring HTML website and bring it to life with Bootstrap.Designed for everyone, everywhere.Bootstrap is a framework that makes front-end web development faster and easier. A couple of guys at Twitter invented it and later made it open source. Other people have joined in and it is now in it's third major release. Bootstrap 3 is good for people of all skill levels, devices of all shapes, and projects of all sizes. But there aren't enough good books out there to help you learn if you're new to it...at all. Amazon has just 12 books on the topic of Bootstrap, as contrasted with 585 books about PHP.

For a couple of decades now, designers have used Photoshop to mock up Web page designs. However, that work generally results in a static graphic of the page, which has to be translated by a developer into the components of a Web page: HTML files and Web-compatible image files. Our multi-device world has shown us that this approach to web design, including full-page comps done in Photoshop, is increasingly problematic. Modern web designers are adopting a new approach: creating flexible web pages whose layout can adapt to suit the screen on which they are displayed. This is “Responsive Web Design” [RWD]. Until now, books on designing responsive Web sites have focused on HTML and CSS – in other words, they've been very code-centric, and visual creativity seems to take a back seat. This new book is aimed at the visual Web designer who’s accustomed to working in Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop CC contains many new features that help streamline the process of converting a static page design to a set of components for a responsive web page. Dan Rose is one of the best-known advocates of this new way of working in Photoshop. He’s observed that only a few people are talking about Photoshop for RWD constructively, yet a majority (63% as of his last informal poll) of web designers are using Photoshop for more than simple asset creation. This transition is a pain point for many designers. His new book will balance coverage of conceptual issues (how to fit tools like Photoshop to the design workflow rather than fitting a workflow to the tools) with practical design exercises tailored to help communicate the overall design direction of the page while respecting the needs of the fluid Web. In addition, he will introduce methods for taking HTML back into Photoshop for further refinement.
