Dive Into® Web 2.0 introduces the principles, applications, technologies, companies, business models and monetization strategies of Web 2.0. The e-book provides you with basic Web 2.0 literacy and points you to resources where you'll find additional information. Dive Into Web 2.0, along with the many free Resource Centers on our website, evolved from research we’ve done to build our own Web 2.0 businesses. In the spirit of Web 2.0, we are sharing this research with the community.

Dive Into Web 2.0 is a chapter from our book, Internet and World Wide Web How to Program, 4/e. By offering this chapter as an e-book, we’re able to keep it up-to-date with the rapidly changing landscape of Web 2.0. Check the site regularly for the latest version. In addition, we have enhanced the e-book version of the chapter with hyperlinks to create a more robust learning experience. In this e-Book you'll learn:

  • The defining characteristics of Web 2.0.
  • Why search is fundamental to Web 2.0.
  • How Web 2.0 empowers the individual.
  • The importance of collective intelligence and network effects.
  • The significance and growth of blogging.
  • Social networking, social media and social bookmarking.
  • How tagging leads to folksonomies.
  • How web services enable new applications to be quickly and easily “mashed up” from existing applications.
  • Web 2.0 technologies.
  • Web 2.0 Internet business and monetization models.
  • The significance of the emerging Semantic Web (the “web of meaning”).

Is Dive Into Web 2.0 right for you? Dive Into Web 2.0 is designed for anyone—entrepreneurs, programmers, non-programmers, managers, marketers, students, teachers, etc.—who want to know what Web 2.0 is, who the leaders of the Web 2.0 community are and where to find additional Web 2.0 information. Maybe you just want to learn the Web 2.0 lingo. Or perhaps you want to know a bit more about the technologies behind Web 2.0. Dive Into Web 2.0 is a great starting pointing for Web 2.0 literacy and will point you where you need to go to find more information.

Internet and World Wide Web How to Program, 4/e

Internet and World Wide Web How to Program, 4/e introduces students with little or no programming experience to the exciting world of Web-based applications. The book has been substantially reworked to reflect today’s Web 2.0 rich Internet application-development methodologies. A comprehensive book that teaches the fundamentals needed to program on the Internet, this text provides in-depth coverage of introductory programming principles, various markup languages (XHTML, Dynamic HTML and XML), several scripting languages (JavaScript, PHP, and Ruby/Ruby on Rails), Ajax, web services, web servers (IIS and Apache) and relational databases (MySQL/SQL Server 2005 Express/Apache Derby/Java DB)—all the skills and tools needed to create dynamic Web-based applications. The text contains comprehensive introductions to ASP .NET 2.0 and JavaServer Faces (JSF). Hundreds of live-code examples of real applications throughout the book allow readers to run the applications and see and hear the outputs. The book provides instruction on building Ajax-enabled rich Internet applications that enhance the presentation of online content and give web applications the look and feel of desktop applications. The chapter on Web 2.0 and Internet business exposes readers to a wide range of other topics associated with Web 2.0 applications and businesses. After mastering the material in this book, students will be well prepared to build real-world, industrial-strength, Web-based applications.
