Adobe Business Catalyst is a hosted application for building and managing online businesses. Using this unified platform and without back-end coding, Web designers can build everything from amazing Websites to powerful online stores, beautiful brochure-ware sites to mini-sites. To work in BC, designers use Dreamweaver (CS4 or later) with the free Business Catalyst extension installed. The cost of hosting a site with BC ranges from a few dollars a month and up, depending on the size of the site and the level of traffic, and the designer can pass on the cost to their client.

This is the first official book on using BC. In this comprehensive, hands-on, step-by-step guide, the reader will learn how to set up eCommerce on the hosted solution. As they work through the chapters, the readers can also follow along with the video tutorials linked in from AdobeTV (tv.adobe.com).

This book covers how to set up a new site, work with web pages, organize the site hierarchy, upload assets via FTP, configure modules, and customize their appearance. It includes best practices to set up site navigation, forums, password-protected areas and web forms. By the end, the reader will have their own working online business.

Once it is live, the designer or the client can use the robust reporting interface in Business Catalyst to review metrics and run custom reports in the customer database. By analyzing the data, the online store can be optimized to improve sales revenue and increase customer adoption.

At the start of every web design project, the ongoing struggles reappear. We want to design highly usable and self-evident applications, but we also want to devise innovative, compelling, and exciting interactions that make waves in the market. Projects are more sophisticated than ever, but we have fewer resources with which to complete them. Requirements are fuzzy at best, but we’re expected to have everything done yesterday.

What we need is a reuse strategy, coupled with a pathway to innovation. Patterns are part of the game. Components take us further. In Web Anatomy: Interaction Design Frameworks That Work, user experience experts Hoekman and Spool introduce “interaction design frameworks”, the third and final piece of what they call “The Reuse Trinity”, and resolve these issues once and for all. Frameworks are sets of design patterns and other elements that comprise entire systems, and in this game-changing book, Hoekman and Spool show you how to identify, document, share, use, and reap the benefits of frameworks. They also dive deep into several major frameworks to reveal how the psychology behind these standards leads not only to effective designs, but can also serve as the basis for cutting-edge innovations and superior user experiences.

Web Anatomy delivers:
A complete guide to using interaction design frameworks An examination of the psychology behind major frameworks A thorough look at how frameworks will change the way you work for the better Citing examples from both the successful and not-so-successful, the authors break down the elements that comprise several common interactive web systems, discuss implementation considerations, offer examples of innovations based on these standards, reveal how frameworks work hand in hand with patterns and components, and show you how to integrate frameworks into your process.

Read Web Anatomy now. Benefit from it for years to come.

Jared Spool is a world-renowned design researcher and the founder of UIE.com. Robert Hoekman, Jr. is a veteran user experience specialist and the author of Designing the Obvious and Designing the Moment.

From Ben Mezrich, the New York Times bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and Bringing Down the House, comes Bitcoin Billionaires--the fascinating story of brothers Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss's big bet on crypto-currency and its dazzling pay-off.

Ben Mezrich's 2009 bestseller The Accidental Billionaires is the definitive account of Facebook's founding and the basis for the Academy Award–winning film The Social Network. Two of the story's iconic characters are Harvard students Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss: identical twins, Olympic rowers, and foils to Mark Zuckerberg. Bitcoin Billionaires is the story of the brothers’ redemption and revenge in the wake of their epic legal battle with Facebook.

Planning to start careers as venture capitalists, the brothers quickly discover that no one will take their money after their fight with Zuckerberg. While nursing their wounds in Ibiza, they accidentally run into an eccentric character who tells them about a brand-new idea: cryptocurrency. Immersing themselves in what is then an obscure and sometimes sinister world, they begin to realize “crypto” is, in their own words, "either the next big thing or total bulls--t." There’s nothing left to do but make a bet.

From the Silk Road to the halls of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Bitcoin Billionaires will take us on a wild and surprising ride while illuminating a tantalizing economic future. On November 26, 2017, the Winklevoss brothers became the first bitcoin billionaires. Here’s the story of how they got there—as only Ben Mezrich could tell it.
