Web Application Design Handbook
Soms is het goed even stil te staan bij het feit dat het web in feite een geheel van complexe software is. Of het nu websites zijn met talrijke pagina's of webapplicaties met uitgebreide interactieve functies en mogelijkheden. Vanuit een pragmatische invalshoek beschrijven Susan Fowler en Victor Stanwick in dit handboek principes, vuistregels en hulpmiddelen om kwalitatieve webapplicaties te ontwerpen.
The standards for usability and interaction design for Web sites and software are well known. While not everyone uses those standards, or uses them correctly, there is a large body of knowledge, best practice, and proven results in those fields, and a good education system for teaching professionals "how to." For the newer field of Web application design, however, designers are forced to reuse the old rules on a new platform. This book provides a roadmap that will allow readers to put complete working applications on the Web, display the results of a process that is running elsewhere, and update a database on a remote server using an Internet rather than a network connection.

This book adds flavor to the standard Web design genre by juxtaposing Web design with programming for the Web and covers design solutions and concepts, such as intelligent generalization, to help software teams successfully switch from one interface to another.
