Diving in Deeper with HTML5 & CSS3

If you're comfortable using HTML for marking up your content and CSS for styling it, you're ready to take the next step! HTML5 and CSS3 are still being developed by standards bodies and browser manufacturers, but there are many pieces you can use today.

HTML5 offers a number of new ways of marking up content more explicitly and additional features that allow even a simple webpage to behave more like a desktop application. CSS3 has more powerful selectors, new properties that can remove the need for tricks we used to do with images, and even interactive functionality and animations. The best part is that if you already understand HTML and CSS, using the new stuff is no more difficult than learning some new keywords and techniques!

This 2-class course runs the weekend.

Here are the class dates:

Class 1: Saturday, September 21st, 10am-1pm

Class 2: Sunday, September 22nd, 10am-1pm

    It's great that GDI offers HTML5 and CSS3 to dig deeper into what the browser can do for us to make richer user experiences without needing a lot of js-heavy-lifting.
