"Learning by doing"
Be the developer
With this book you will not just read - you must also do. Throughout the book you write every single code and add every single detail on your own project on your own pc. When done, you have a professional product created by your own bare hands; a template for future projects.
Realistic development work
Relevant, realistic web development project
Our goal was to avoid irrelevant "hello world" examples out of thin air just to illustrate theoretical points. The development work in this book is instead built around a realistic project that could have been taken straight out of the real world.

We have therefore invented the story about the imaginary restaurant Eos Café, whom you will be developing a proressional website for. Every code and every page has relevance and influence on the final result.
Highly pedagogical
Speaks to everyone
Colourful text book, written in a fresh language as the "voice in your head", as were you a professional web developer. No technical prerequisites needed, perfect for upcoming, eager developers and for self-study. Feel how you take the role of the developer, and a website comes to life page by page.
For the beginner and intermediate
Level and target audience
Made for the beginner or intermediate html-and-css developer. No technical prerequisites needed. The book brings the reader past the introductory developing level, and prepares him or her for exploration into the possiblities of the coding languages in future projects with fundamental understanding of and training in their usage, rules, content and structure.
Factual and thorough
Html & css, the two fundamental coding languages

Thorough introduction to the coding languages html and css - the two fundamental languages for web development with their elements, attributes, properties and selectors from which any website on the internet is built.

The book provides fundamental training and theory in typical web development work in these languages. It contains an abundance of fact boxes as well as look-up tables and the like for your overview, and it inspires towards further study on you own.
