Programming the World Wide Web is your comprehensive introduction to the tools and skills required for both client- and server-side programming. You'll learn how to develop platform-independent sites using the most current Web development technology. The text presents essential programming exercises using a manageable progression. You'll begin by working on a foundational website and learn to employ new languages and technologies to add features as the course progresses.

The 8th Edition has been updated to reflect advancements in programming and includes a completely new chapter on the structure and development of Android applications. The basics of view documents (written in an XML-based markup language) and activities (written in a form of Java) are introduced, and several examples are offered to illustrate this new approach to building Web applications for mobile devices.
