A practical go-to reference for Web developers programmingcustom software for Web sites
Most advanced Web sites or Web platforms have specificrequirements that go beyond standard functionality; to meet suchrequirements, it's often necessary to develop custom software. Thisis the point where code and content meet, and where this bookbegins. Where Code and Content Meet presents a collection ofreal-world, tried and tested patterns that address content-relatedaspects of custom software development for advanced Web sites orplatforms.
Mined from a series of successful Web projects, the patternsrepresent collected expertise of designers from several softwaredevelopment teams and serve as a practical guide to designing yourown content-related custom components for your Web project. Thepatterns are independent of specific tools and technologies, andfocus on non-functional requirements, with the overall goal ofdefining sustainable software architecture.
* Presents a collection of tried and tested software patternsmined from a series of successful Web projects
* Includes checklists for managing Web projects and real-worldpatterns from PLoP conferences
* Illustrates use of software patterns through a case study thatruns throughout the book and gradually evolves as the patterns areapplied to it, one by one
* Covers content modeling and content organization, navigation,findability, personalization, and user participation
By employing the software patterns included in Where Code andContent Meet, you'll learn how to program custom softwarefaster and more efficiently.
