Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "CSS3 Properties Tutorial," an advanced CSS3 training course teaching important new features that empower developers with greater flexibility and range in web design and layout.
CSS3 is a style sheet language used to describe the look and formatting of a document written in HTML. The new version offers a wide array of new features that allow developers to include custom design elements with more control over layout options. The new features greatly reduce dependence on external frameworks and software applications, and allowing developers to save time and work more efficiently.
Infinite Skills' CSS3 Properties Tutorial offers a detailed guide for learning several key new features, including options for backgrounds, text effects, transitions, and more.
Course author Ben Jaffe is a freelance front-end web developer and instructor in the San Francisco Bay area. He has several years of experience in software development, as well as teaching and consulting. In addition to training and media development, Jaffe is the co-host of the radio show and podcast, Geek Speak.
Following a brief introduction, Jaffe explores the new layout and user interface features, demonstrating new unit options, flexbox, and border options.
The course then looks at color and the new ability to work with transparency and opacity.
Other key topics include applying multiple backgrounds and using gradients with backgrounds, creating effects with text and custom fonts, working with transitions and animations, and a review of new selectors in CSS3.
The course closes with a chapter containing several projects applying and synthesizing earlier lessons, showing how they work together to create great effects in web design.
"First of all," Jaffe begins, "it's important to understand that CSS3 is the best thing to hit browsers pretty much ever."
"CSS3 adds a whole set of new features to the CSS3 specification. These new CSS features are really tools in your toolbox. We'll see how to use properties together to create a full effect for your websites.
