In this workshop, you'll take your HTML & CSS learning to the next level by working with HTML5 features like semantic elements and forms, and you'll learn new CSS3 properties and abilities including transformations, transitions, and animation. Finally, we'll dig into responsive design and browser compatibility. You'll leave with readily-applicable skills and we'll be there to answer any questions you may have along the way!

NOTE: You are not required to take our introductory workshop before taking this one, but it is recommended if you have no previous HTML/CSS experience. If you are unsure if you should take Intro or Intermediate, use the topic list below to help to determine which class is more suited to your skills or post a question in the comments.
