Progress of reading #packt5dollarTweet

I bought iPad Air 2 for reading eBooks that bought at #packt5dollar sale. it gave me better experience for eBooks reading than my MacBook Pro Retina 15". I prefer epub than PDF because epub can adjust font size freely and I like continuous scroll mode in iBooks. PDF is well-layouted but some of PDF has wider margin at around the content and fonts are too small still.
I finished these books:
WildFly Configuration, Deployment, and Administration - Second Edition
Description about deployment mechanism was good for me because I did’t know how to deploy applications as exploded. the book has many description for large scale use case such as domain, clustering and load-balancing but that doesn’t make sense for me much because I used WildFly in standalone. also sections of detailed configuration are good, especially a section about web container Undertow. I would look back this book as a reference sometimes later.
Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3
I’m terrible at client side web technology but the book doesn’t demand much background knowledge so I think I understand most. my knowledge level is something like that I can barely create typical multi-column website which fixed width and non responsive with struggling. I learned such things: how responsive design and fluid layout are important, and basic of HTML5/CSS3 (including media queries) and how to apply polyfill to these latest specs for older web browsers such as IE 6/7/8. at first, I would make my blog to responsive for practice.
