Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. last week introduced its "Learning Modernizr Tutorial," an introductory course for practicing web designers and developers that teaches the essentials of browser support detection with this useful and simple program.

Modernizr is a JavaScript library that runs alongside page load to check a browser for features. It then creates a JavaScript object with the results and adds classes to the HTML element to key CSS code. The program supports a wide variety of tests, making it easy for developers to manage enhancements to websites.

Infinite Skills' Learning Modernizr Tutorial" starts with the basics of loading the program onto a web page and creating a custom build, and advances to its capabilities for conditionally running JavaScript.

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.

Here, Jaffe begins by explaining Modernizr's basic functionality, as well as when and where to use it best.

He provides detailed instruction on acquiring and setting up Modernizr, and then moves quickly into its basic functionality, explaining progressive enhancement in CSS, Modernizr classes, and working with sites without JavaScript.

The course concludes as Jaffe explores Modernizr's use with JavaScript, explaining the Modernizr object, conditionally running JavaScript, adding custom tests, and several lessons looking at Modernizr's extended features which allow developers to test media queries, styles properties, and whether browsers support various events.

"Modernizr is an up-to-date fantastic JavaScript feature-detection library," Jaffe says.
