Designing for Performance

“This practical book helps you approach a new project or redesign with page speed in mind, and shows you how to test and benchmark your design choices' impact on performance. You’ll also learn how to create semantic HTML and CSS that are easily repurposed and edited later, saving not just page load time but also your own time during development.”

Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, 3rd Edition

“The post-Ajaxian Web 2.0 world of wikis, folksonomies, and mashups makes well-planned information architecture even more essential. How do you present large volumes of information to people who need to find what they're looking for quickly? This classic primer shows information architects, designers, and web site developers how to build large-scale and maintainable web sites that are appealing and easy to navigate.”

High Performance Responsive Design

“Responsive Web Design (RWD) requires a more abstract way of responding to a user's behavior and environment. There’s a delicate balance between designing for a user's context and insuring that the performance of the design is not weighed down by special elements.  High Performance Responsive Design is the first book to approach RWD with performance in mind. Author Tom Barker, a software engineer, solutions architect, and technical manager, shows you how to create website designs that are both high performing and compelling for the context of the user.”

Interactive Data Visualization for the Web

“Create and publish your own interactive data visualization projects on the Web—even if you have little or no experience with data visualization or web development. It’s easy and fun with this practical, hands-on introduction. Author Scott Murray teaches you the fundamental concepts and methods of D3, a JavaScript library that lets you express data visually in a web browser. Along the way, you’ll expand your web programming skills, using tools such as HTML and JavaScript.”
