Intermediate CSS3 and HTML5

Today's websites require streamlined code that adapts to a variety of devices, screen resolutions, Web browsers, and user needs. CSS3 and HTML5 are the keys to creating that, and they're the foundation upon which all modern websites built (not to mention many mobile apps, games, and even desktop apps). This means today's software developers need a deep understanding of CSS3 and HTML5. 

In this course, you'll take your CSS and HTML skills to the next level and learn how to create professional-quality websites. You'll find out the methods the pros use to quickly build effective sites that are easy to maintain and modify. You'll discover the secrets to ensuring you keep total creative control over every aspect of a site. You'll master specific techniques for using background images and controlling opacity, visibility, and scrollbars. You'll create picture thumbnail galleries, cool hover (mouse over) effects, drop-down menus and fly out menus, and animation effects that work on hover as well as touchscreens like the iPhone and iPad. You'll also discover wonderful easy-to-code methods for creating responsive layouts that scale well to all screen sizes and devices.

Intermediate CSS3 and HTML5 Outline
Expand All
Week 1

Start off with a quick review of what CSS and HTML are all about, the syntax of each language, and the key concepts and terminology. Then we'll go hands-on and actually create a new website to use as working example for more hands-on practice throughout the course. You’ll also come to understand the viewport and its importance in Web design, and apply it to some advanced techniques for background images. 

Week 2

Learn how to take your Web design skills to a whole new level with CSS static, relative, fixed, and absolute positioning. You'll also find out how to position things exactly where you want them, even stack and overlap them, just like the pros do. Then develop an understanding of CSS properties such as values necessary for controlling opacity, visibility, and scroll bars from which drop-down menus, pop-up thumbnail galleries, and scrolling textboxes are built.  

Week 3

Learn how to apply advanced techniques like visibility, absolute positioning, and hover to some fun things like thumbnail photo galleries and interactive facts. Then, learn of downloadable fonts and the modern Web Open Font Format (WOFF), as well as the CSS @font-face rule that make them possible. With this knowledge, you'll be able to choose from thousands of fonts for your website. 

Week 4

In this lesson, you’ll learn to create cool-looking navigation bars and tabs like you see in professional sites. Then, use the skills you've gained so far to create some complex navigation tools with drop-down and fly out menus like the ones you may have seen in some large, professionally developed websites.

Week 5

Step back from the fine details on which we've focused for the past few lessons, and look again at the bigger picture of the entire page layout. You'll see how pages are likely to look going forward with HTML5 and CSS3, and you'll pick up some new tricks for making your pages better for the browsers and devices of today and tomorrow. Then, you'll learn smart and relatively simple techniques that you can start using right now to ensure that your site looks and behaves its best across all those different media.

Week 6

Learn some of the upcoming features of CSS3 and HTML5. And finally, expand your horizons into other areas of Web development and app development. You'll learn the purpose of JavaScript and jQuery. You'll also understand server-side technologies like PHP, MySQL, ASP.Net, and SQL Server—what they are, how you'd use them, and why you might want to learn them.
