Workshop Details

With new features and new syntax to learn on the daily, CSS can be a struggle. However, the power of CSS is worth the pain. With an understanding on how to employ CSS correctly, and knowledge of most CSS gotchas, you can reduce development time, shrink maintenance costs, and improve SEO, accessibility and site performance. In this in-person or online four-day workshop you will learn the capabilities of CSS, including new layout techniques, animation, progressive design principles, quirks, time-saving techniques, and debugging. There have been over 100 specifications introduced since the original CSS draft, so while we can't cover everything in this workshop, we will look at some of the specifications with a focus on what specifications are implemented, supported, usable, and shippable.
