Bert Appward of the Google team recently released a superb interactive book titled “Field Guide to Web Applications“. Through the literature Bert presents the best skills and practices of building modern web apps. The guide covers the following topics:
- KNOW YOUR WEB APPS
- DESIGNING WEB APPLICATIONS
- CASE STUDIES OF WEB APPS IN THE WILD
- BUILDING GREAT WEB APPLICATIONS
Not only is it a great read but a fun experience. The guide has an almost tangible feel to it as the pages flip and has a strong emphasis on texture. I recommend checking it out.
