The Modern Web, and The Future of Web Design

Warning This article was written over six months ago, and may contain outdated information.

The cover of the book, The Modern WebI am delighted and very proud to announce my new book, The Modern Web. It’s about the modern open web technologies — HTML5, CSS3, SVG, JavaScript, DOM APIs, et al — that are required to build websites and applications in the new multi-device era. Basically, it’s about the Web Platform, but my publishers didn’t think the word “platform” was sexy enough so I had to drop it.

It’s not quite finished yet — I’m still in a final round of edits — but is planned for release in April. I’ll be further promoting it nearer that time (of course), but if you’re interested in pre-ordering you can get good prices from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Or, if you prefer, you can pre-order “The Modern Web” directly from No Starch Press and get a 30 percent discount and a free eBook copy. It’s a great deal.

I’m equally delighted to announce that I’ll be speaking at Future of Web Design in London, in May of this year, along with a great line-up of excellent speakers. I’ll also be giving a one-day CSS3 Masterclass before the conference. Tickets are on sale now, and if you book before 1st March you’ll get £100 off the total price. Another great deal.
