What our readers have to say about the book...

"The Non-technical Guide to Web Technologies presents material in a manner that's easy to understand and fun to read. It's a fantastic resource for people who, like me, are not professional developers but spend a lot of time working with technical people and on technical projects."
Jared Cohen @jaredcohe

"The book is a great resource in a concise package. I found the programming languages section especially helpful in keeping up to date with modern web technologies. If you work with technical people, get this book! Forever is gone to using the terms, rubies on rails, the coffee language, or c-pound."
