Designing with CSS Grid Layout

https://www.amazon.com/Designing-Grid-Layout-Ahmad-Ajmi-eboo...
Layout in CSS has always been a tricky task: hacking solutions using positioning, floats, and the one-dimensional flexbox has never been very satisfactory. Fortunately, there is a new tool to add to our arsenal: CSS Grid Layout. It is an incredibly powerful layout system that allows us to design pages using a two-dimensional grid - offering the kind of fine-grained layout control that print designers take for granted! Grid Layout has been in development for a while, but has recently been made a W3C candidate recommendation and has been added to most of the major browsers, so is ready for prime time.This short selection of tutorials, hand-picked from SitePoint's HTML & CSS channel, will get you up and running with Grid Layout and using it on your own sites in no time.This collection includes:
  • An Introduction to the CSS Grid Layout Module by Ahmad Ajmi
  • Seven Ways You Can Place Elements Using CSS Grid Layout by Nitish Kumar
  • How to Order and Align Items in Grid Layout by Nitish Kumar
  • A Step by Step Guide to the Auto- Placement Algorithm in CSS Grid by Nitish Kumar
  • How I Built a Pure CSS Crossword Puzzle by Adrian Roworth
This book is suitable for front end developers and web designers with some CSS experience.

Modern JavaScript

https://www.amazon.com/Modern-JavaScript-James-Kolce-ebook/d...
It's not uncommon these days to see people complaining about just how complex JavaScript development seems to have become. We can have some sympathy with that view when it's coming from someone new to the language. If you're learning JS, it won't take long for you to be exposed to the enormity of the ecosystem and the sheer number of moving pieces you need to understand (at least conceptually) to build a modern web application. Package management, linting, transpilation, module bundling, minification, source maps, frameworks, unit testing, hot reloading... it can't be denied that this is a lot more complex that just including a couple of script tags in your page and FTPing it up to the server.Included topics:
  • The Anatomy of a Modern JavaScript Application by James Kolce
  • An Introduction to Gulp.js by Craig Buckler
  • The Basics of DOM Manipulation in Vanilla JavaScript (No jQuery) by Sebastian Seitz
  • A Beginner's Guide to Webpack 2 and Module Bundling by Mark Brown
  • React vs Angular: An In-depth Comparison by Pavels Jelisejevs
  • Retrofit Your Website as a Progressive Web App by Craig Buckler
  • 10 Tips to Become a Better Node Developer by Azat Mardan
  • An Introduction to Functional JavaScript by M. David Green
  • An Introduction to Chart.js 2.0 : Six Simple Examples by Jack Rometty
  • Learning JavaScript Test-Driven Development by Example by James Wright
This book is for intermediate level JavaScript developers. Some experience of JavaScript development is assumed.

Better PHP Development

https://www.amazon.com/Better-PHP-Development-Bruno-Skvorc-e...
PHP powers the vast majority of the web today. It is by far the most ubiquitous and accessible mature web language, and welcomes thousands of new developers every day. It is this ease of access that can, admittedly, sometimes give it a bad name - good resources are few and far in between, and the competition is real, driving people to take shortcuts, skip best practices, and learn on-the-fly.With PHP 7+ came some improvements that make it harder to make mistakes, and 7.2 is making things even safer, even more structured. If you're just getting started with the language (or perhaps youve been using it a while and have learned some bad habits), you're in luck. Not only will it be ever harder to slip up and make mistakes, but content such as this - hand picked from the excellent SitePoint PHP channel - will help you get started the right way.This collection comprises:
  • How PHP Executes - from Source Code to Render by Thomas Punt
  • Getting to Know and Love Xdebug by Bruno Å kvorc
  • Localization Demystified: Php-Intl for Everyone by Younes Rafie
  • Event Sourcing in a Pinch by Christopher Pitt
  • Disco with Design Patterns: A Fresh Look at Dependency Injection by Reza Lavaryan
