tricks that will make your clients happy to server-side configurations that
will make life easier for you and your users. You’ll find a mix of tried-and-true

Who’s This Book For?
If you make things on the Web, this book is for you. If you’re a web designer
or frontend developer who’s looking to expand into other areas of web development,
you’ll get a chance to play with some new libraries and workflows
that will help you be more productive, and you’ll get exposed to a little bit of
that server-side stuff along the way.
If you’ve been spending a lot of time on the backend and you need to get up
to speed on some frontend techniques, you’ll find some good recipes here as

One last thing—a lot of these recipes assume you’ve had a little experience
have that experience, read through the recipes anyway and pick apart the
provided source code. Consider the more advanced recipes as a challenge.
