"In this book, the reader is guided through an extensible and scalable web application development methodology. The tools used to carry out the methodology include Perl, CGI, HTML and XML. The recommended methodology is based on object-oriented and decoupled functionality concepts. By the time you reach the book's end, you will have developed and examined a series of web applications that apply each design concept or programming convention."
"The authors presume the reader possesses at least an intermediate level of experience with computing and programming technologies. With this framework, the book states the concept to be applied or the task to be performed. The rationale for why each concept or task is important is also presented. What you will not find is a list of the steps required to perform the tasks. Extending what you learn to your own applications is where the intermediate to advanced experience comes in. What's presented will generally get you up and running. Other resources are required if you want more specific details."
"By the time you reach the end of this book, you will have explored conceptual constructs, models and tools you can use to develop web sites. These sites should be easier to deploy, update and maintain. More importantly, web site content changes will not always require programming expertise to implement."
