Paul Sheriff has been rescheduled for our February event!


Most programmers are not artists; but you don't need to be in order for your HTML5 applications to look professional. Just a few little touches such as the use of appropriate styles, color gradients, pictures, animation and a few other UI design tips and your application will look great!

This seminar will present you with a collection of tips that will spice up your HTML5 applications in no time at all. The best thing is you can do all of these in Visual Studio; no need to learn an artist’s tool such as PhotoShop or Microsoft Expression Web. You will be shown how to create a library of re-usable styles, colors, gradients, color palettes, descriptive buttons and many other techniques that will take your applications from drab to fab! You will walk away with a set of styles and resources that you can put to use in your applications immediately!
