Class Description


What you'll learn in this html class:

In this hands-on class, you’ll expand your knowledge of what CSS & HTML can do, enabling you to create well-designed webpages.

From more advanced ways to visually style content, to better ways of targeting elements with CSS, this course will supercharge your CSS skills.

Take control over the layout of your webpages by learning about an alternate box-model called border-box, use vector graphics (SVG), and create visual effects such as CSS gradients, shadows, transparent colors (with RGBA), and more. Gain a deeper understanding of how positioning works (relative, absolute, fixed), target elements with advanced CSS selectors, and learn the power of CSS variables. You’ll better optimize your pages with responsive images using CSS media queries, img srcset, and the picture element.

This course builds upon Web Development with HTML & CSS, and is the second class in our Web Design & Web Development Bootcamps.
