Robin Nixon has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s (his first computer was a Tandy TRS 80 Model 1 with a massive 4KB of RAM!). During this time he has written ten books, and in excess of 500 articles for many of the UK’s top computer magazines. Robin lives on the southeast coast of England with his wife, Julie, a trained nurse, five children and three disabled foster children, where he works full time as a book author and publisher.

5,0 su 5 stelleA great way to get quickly up to speed.

Reading some of the 1-3 star reviews makes me wonder how someone that did a "web-easy" website would feel this is "the book" to learn how to design a website?
Robin Nixon, in his crisp and concise style used in his other Crash Course books, will bring a reader who has a reasonable level of knowledge HTML and at least slight familiarity with Java script, quickly up to speed using HTML5 features to enhance their designs while modernizing their websites to be currently compliant. The increased knowledge of HTML5 easily gained from this book will also readily assist the designer in the planning, development and deployment or updating of responsive websites.
If there is any criticism of this book, it would be that the proofing editor should realize that when using a spell checker, many when checking the spelling of "Spell Checker" will have no problem validating "Spill Chuck-er"

1,0 su 5 stelleBad recommendations on programming practices
26 marzo 2014 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
As a retired software engineer, I was appalled to read programming recommendations to use single character method names in this book. Readability contributes significantly to not only understanding the code base, but also towards maintenance (which may not be performed by the original author). Yet, Mr. Nixon hypes saving 22 character strokes by obfuscating a method name down to one character. The propagation of such practices is shameful, and does not lead to providing understanding in this book. Method names, and variable names for that matter, should always be descriptive to the greatest extent possible.
Because of Mr. Nixon's coding practices, I cannot recommend this book. Nor would I hire him...
I got Robin Nixon's HTML5 Crash Course: Learn HTML and HTML5 in 20 easy lectures because it was availible for the KIndle, it was free and I wanted to learn exactly what HTML is. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. The book explaines HTML and how to use it properly. The invention of HTML changed everything because with it there is a way for all computers to stay in touch with each other and a way for documents to be stored in a multitude of places and still be only a click away. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the internet and how the website works. The Kindle price is free, so why not try it?
2,0 su 5 stelleNot a bad book, but doesn't teach best practices
24 agosto 2013 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
I stopped after skimming through the first few chapters. There is a lot of good information here, but also not the best practices. It was easy to follow, but unfortunately I'll no longer continue reading as I'd much prefer to learn the correct way than the incorrect way.
