What people are saying:

"Web development is multifaceted work, and this little book fits right in. Densely packed with creative ideas drawing from Alan’s decades of experience, it spans a wide gamut of creativity – from photography and video, to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you do creative work on the web, this is worth checking out."

- Dave Ceddia: Developer, blogger, @eggheadio instructor. Author: Pure React

"With experience what I have learnt is web development is not just about the ability to code, rather it’s more about the ability to create something wonderful, something different. Unlike the traditional coding books where the author focuses just on the technical aspects, in this book Alan talks about other important things like photoshop, photography, content creation, etc., which all of us web developers struggle with at one or other point in time. I highly recommend this book for developers holding any level of experience."

- Ishwar Rimal: Software Developer.
