So this book shows web developers how to create their own event-handling libraries of browser-compatible code. That training also enables them to appreciate…and profit from…the extensive libraries of tested code that are included in the downloadable applications for the book.
#4: It shows 20 complete applications that can be used as models for new apps
The key to mastering client-side web development is to have plenty of applications that show how the features interact and what problems might occur in building a website. So this book shows complete code for 20 professional applications, ranging from forms validation to revolving slide shows.
These can be downloaded for free from the Murach website, so developers can experiment with them on their own.
#5: The paired-pages format lets developers set their own pace
Murach books have a distinctive format. Each two-page spread presents a single topic: the lefthand page explains the topic, while the righthand page shows the critical details, using syntax, code, screen shots, and how-to notes. Both beginning and experienced developers find that this format makes it easy to focus on the information they need, whether they’re using the book for training or reference.
