Build web applications that can change as you grow

How do you create a mission-critical site that provides exceptional performance while remaining flexible, adaptable, and reliable 24/7? Written by the manager of a UI group at Yahoo!, this book offers practical steps for building rock-solid applications that remain effective even as you add features, functions, and users. You’ll learn how to develop large web applications with the extreme precision required for other types of software.

—Avoid common coding and maintenance headaches when small websites add more pages, code, and programmers

—Embrace the virtues of modularity, encapsulation, abstraction, and loosely coupled components

—Get comprehensive solutions for refining HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and Ajax for large-scale web applications

—Use tried-and-true techniques for managing data exchange, including working with forms and cookies

—Discover how object orientation narrows the semantic gap between a program and what it models

—Learn often-overlooked best practices in code management and software engineering

—Understand how the techniques in this book can be used collectively to solve real-world problems

Familiarity with web development tools, including JavaScript, PHP, HTML, and CSS, is recommended.

“Developing Large Web Applications teaches the design of lean client/server applications in a disciplined fashion that does not require use of heavy frameworks or knowledge of intricate academic concepts. It is simple, to the point, and provides the reader with a modular framework that is easily extended to cover new requirements. Kyle Loudon has done an excellent job condensing key PHP, CSS, and JavaScript concepts into a cohesive whole that will stay maintainable over time.”

—Christoph Dorn, Long-time PHP and JavaScript programmer, and author of “FirePHP”

“I found Kyle's book to be extremely well-organized and clearly thought out. As a professor, I am constantly searching for good reference material for my students which will help them move beyond a simple procedural approach to web development. This book will definitely help in that respect. I will be recommending this book to my students and expect it will pay dividends in what they can produce for me, in the classroom, as well as in their jobs after college.”

—Steve Griffith, Professor of Interactive Multimedia, Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada


Kyle Loudon leads a UI development group at Yahoo!. He previously worked on the user interface for the original Apple iPod, and led the UI group at Jeppesen DataPlan, a Boeing company involved in the development of a flight planning system used by airlines around the world.
