I am very happy to have made a small contribution to a very large publication. The 4th Edition of Web Style Guide, Foundations of User Experience Design (Yale University Press, Patrick J. Lynch, Sarah Horton, and Ethan Marcotte) is a necessary part of learning proper design in this field of Web Development. ‘This new revised edition confirms Web Style Guide as the go-to authority in a rapidly changing market’ (Yale University Press).
“With this new edition, the authors update the book to include important changes in the field of web building. This book will appeal to the professional web builder, the instructor, the scholar, and, of course, the student.”—Greg O’Toole, author of Sustainable Web Ecosystem Design
As a faculty member in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University, I teach many courses related to building with web technology. I focus on leading languages, software and methods that scale up to the demands of the assembled web that users expect across any number of mobile devices and platforms. In the contemporary world, every environment is a web environment and users expect a beautiful and personal experience.
I also use these technologies in National Science Foundation funded research projects across different Penn Sate institutes and colleges working to discover and implement new ways to augment scientific collaboration, development, and teaching across the planet.
I am proud to be a part of the growing intellectual community at the European Graduate School. With the main campus in beautiful Saas-fee, Switzerland and a new campus in Malta, this important academic institution continues to make beneficial and necessary impressions on the world. My role at EGS is to advise and consult with the web team that builds www.egs.edu.
The first edition of one of my books Sustainable Web Ecosystem Design is published and available from Springer as part of their Springer Briefs in Computer Science Series. I am at work on edition number 2. Free downloads are available in chapter format or full book from Springer.
It’s great to see that many people are finding interest in this important topic, and over 7,000 downloads are currently totaled by Bookmetrix.
