    As someone currently in a SuperHi course and reading the book, it's muy bien. Super helpful at breaking down what seem to be complex web solutions into digestible and manageable pieces. I have done Codeacademy and other online coding "courses" and this is much more structured and feels oriented towards those who want a more clear understanding of front-end/designers wanting to build their own front-end designs.

    As someone who's been on (and loved) a SuperHi course, I'd expect this to be really high quality. Rik knows his shit and more importantly is a great tutor.

    Hi! Excited for this to come out. I've read HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites by Jon Duckett and enjoyed how it was explained (maybe a little dated 2011). How does your book compare to the quality? I haven't taken or known of the SuperHi course. I'm trying to set an expectation for myself before purchasing the digital book. I am a Sr. Web Designer with an understanding of Front-end (conceptually) and I want to strengthen my Front-end skills as a design tool so that, I can prototype my ideas and bring in motion to designs.

    Thank you for the time you all put into adding this as a resource.

      Hey Carlos,

      Jon's book is pretty much the best one out there, he's already a really nice dude too. Personally, my problem with most guides (including Jon's) is how they separate out HTML and CSS in two (or three if you include Javascript).

      When you're learning, there's a continual progression with all three of HTML, CSS and Javascript together – you don't learn all of HTML, then all of CSS, then all of Javascript. They're all incredibly interlinked.

      Ours is aimed more towards designers and people who work in the creative industry, rather than a mainstream audience, so there's a lot more "design" techniques in there rather than theory about coding.
