Book Giveaway – Pro CSS for High Traffic Websites

This book assumes you know what CSS is and can write it to some extent already. If you work in a large team, on a site with plenty of traffic (over 10,000 unique visitors a day), or loads of pages, this book was written for you. If you don’t work on high traffic websites, this book still has plenty to teach you, especially if you’re working in a team of any size. If you don’t work on a team, either, but see yourself working with CSS in the future, you can still benefit by understanding how it all works in a well formed-professional environment.

It’s extremely clear to me that the authors of this book, Antony Kennedy and Inayaili de Leon, are highly experienced and know what they are talking about. They are professionals at the top of the game. Further, being published by Apress indicates that this is a quality technical book.

Antony has worked for the BBC, BSkyB, Tesco, Disney, and Channel4 (among others). Employed as a web developer to CTO to Head of Front End Development, Antony has worked at all levels. This gives him real insight into how anyone working with CSS can help the team work as a well-oiled machine. You can find him on twitter @booshtukka.

Inayaili currently works for Canonical, the organisation behind Ubuntu, takes on freelance work, speaks at a number of events and also writes for the likes of 24 ways and Smashing Magazine. She also writes on her own blog, Web Designers Notebook (which is part of the Smashing Network), on and around the areas of web design. Find her on twitter @yaili.

Assuming you’re interested in finding out more about Antony and Inayaili while the giveaway is running, I’ll be interviewing them both and updating this posts with the links.
