Video Description

CSS is a deceptively simple presentation language that has significantly developed over the last few years. Front-end developers need to keep style sheets manageable and organized by taking a modular approach to building a website. They can either wrestle with it, or learn how to master it in order to easily apply layouts and styles with precision. This web development video course has been designed to help you build your knowledge of CSS and master one of the most valuable tools in modern web design.

We start off with a brief review of the foundations of CSS by using a good text editor to automate your authoring and set up a CSS baseline. We then move on to creating a layout with floats and a functioning menu with dropdowns, taking a modular-organized approach to CSS. We deep dive into a lot of details of CSS in this course, from creating a modern looking ghost button and a big call-to-action button to the supposedly difficult and scary SVG. We’ll also look in depth at CSS3 properties such as transforms, transitions, and animations.

By the end, you’ll have an understanding of responsive web design, web fonts, icon fonts, and techniques used to support retina devices; all things a modern frontend web developer must know. This course will arm you with all the knowledge, tips, and tricks you need to make you stand out in the world of developing complex, responsive, feature-rich web applications.

Style and Approach

This video course is an easy-going and pragmatic approach to authoring style sheets, and will help you gain a very solid understanding of CSS. The course keeps building your knowledge as each section discusses several features with CSS3 in order to create complex, feature-rich web applications.

What You Will Learn

  • Take advantage of the Chrome developer tools to troubleshoot CSS
  • Explore some of the most solid techniques used to solve the problems of floats, such as the clearfix hack
  • Rename elements with classes, use descendant selectors, and understand specificity rules
  • Become proficient with CSS3 properties such as transitions, transforms, gradients, pseudo classes, and animations
  • Leverage the power of absolute, relative, static, and fixed positioning techniques
  • Delve into modular, reusable, and scalable CSS for more organized and smaller style sheets
  • Understand media queries and the other fundamentals of responsive web design
  • Get creative with the @font-face property, font kits, Google Web Fonts, subscription font services, and icon fonts
  • Optimize the workflow for HiDPI (retina) devices using 2x images, 1.5x images, SVG, and the srcset attribute
  • Learn how to layout features of your web page using flexbox, which solves many of the layout challenges we were accustomed to with float-based layout
