Web Development Books

Many developers often ask me what books I read and what books I recommend in regards to web development and web technologies such as AJAX, Javascript, CSS, xHTML, and so on. Therefore, I have compiled a list of Web Development Books for the aspiring web developers wanting to read, learn and fill gaps in their knowledge.

Books are categorised into 4 main categories: CSS, Javascript & AJAX, Mobile Web Development and API & Web Services.
