Jen began designing for the web in May 1993 as the designer of O’Reilly Media’s “Global Network Navigator.” Since then, she’s written several books about web design, including Web Design in a Nutshell and Learning Web Design. She recently made the switch to mobile as the Senior Designer for O’Reilly Media’s new mobile publishing department. Her first app, “HTML 4 & 5 Complete Reference,” an adaptation of her HTML Pocket Reference book, is available in the App Store now.

The Big Web Show (“Everything Web That Matters”) records live every Thursday. Edited episodes can be watched afterwards, often within hours of recording, via iTunes and the web. Subscribe and enjoy!

Note that, for the time being, the shows are audio only. If you subscribed to the video feed in iTunes, you’ll need to switch to audio. Sorry about that!
