The action in software development has shifted from packaged software to Software-as-a-Service (SAAS) built with front-end web development tools. All over the world, companies are desperate to hire software professionals with these new skills; job placement services are scrambling to find candidates. Front-End Web Development: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide brings together all the crucial JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3 skills that experienced developers need to succeed in modern front-end development.

Writing for programmers coming from older platforms or different web paradigms, two Big Nerd Ranch boot camp trainers get you up-to-speed fast on tools and best practices you need right now. Each chapter guides you through essential concepts and APIs for front-end web development, as you build example applications that have been carefully crafted and refined through real-world instruction at Big Nerd Ranch's programming boot camps. Step by step, Chris Aquino and Todd Gandee show you how to create rich web experiences, modern websites, and outstanding web/mobile apps.

You'll learn how to:

  • Implement responsive UIs
  • Access remote web services
  • Architect apps with Ember.js
  • Debug and test your code with cutting-edge development tools
  • Harness Node.js and today's powerful npm open-source modules
  • And much more

This is the newest title in the Big Nerd Ranch Press series, straight from the world-class programming trainers at The Big Nerd Ranch.
