Nothing stops zombies better than HTML5 forms and interactive elements (not even a shotgun or a harsh talking to from their mother). These HTML5 tags are engaging, helpful and don’t require complicated coding. In short they’re like a bazooka to a shotgun, taking down zombies with ease, flair, and panache.
This book covers the gap between code and design, the things zombies hope you won’t learn, usability. It’s how a user interacts with your site and whether they can find the information they came looking for or complete the task they set out to do. Better maintenance and better usability both lead to less crying and fewer zombies. That’s a win and a delayed apocalypse for everyone!
