Preface: Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language I’ve been explaining what’s now the Wolfram Language to people for more than 25 years, and I finally decided it was time to take what I’d learned and write a minimal introduction that people could read on their own. This book is the result of that effort. When we first launchedMathematica—the precursor of the Wolfram Language—in 1988, I published a book that provided both a tutorial introduction and reference guide to the system. The book was very popular and I think contributed substantially to the early success of Mathematica. Over the next decade or so, The Mathematica Book, as it came to be known, went through five editions, and steadily grew until it was nearly 1500 pages long.

Responsive Web Design Tools, Techniques, Templates and Frameworks The need for excessive on the go mobile browsing, and an excessive amount of devices now allow for a responsive web design corresponding with the website. Web designers and web developers today have to design websites that are functional across multiple screen resolutions. That means websites should be available for browsing on smartphones, tablets, netbooks, or standard monitors, without losing their screen resolution, according to the user’s screen size. Multiple viewing mediums have certainly made the job a tad more difficult for the modern web designer. A responsive web design will ideally allow the website to be viewed and respond according to the medium that is being used to view it, so for example if a user is browsing the website on a 320px smartphone, or 768px or 1024px tablet, or a 1680px netbook or monitor, it will respond and look the same way. So, how do you go about designing a responsive web design?
