The author invented the term DRA, Development of Rapid Applications, as opposed to RAD, Rapid Application Development. This is a collection of tricks and tips that make a Web site fast, usable, maintainable and aesthetic. It provides convincing evidences, why we should abandon the What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get Web development environment and should work from scratch. Following the examples of the book you will become an advanced developer much faster than if you keep reading those beginner's books, or keep pointing-and-clicking in a code-generating software. The new edition contains AJAX tips that speed up the web site.
