About this event

CSS3 brings with it a slew of new properties to really make your pages pop. There are also new ways to produce dynamic animations, all with CSS. Come learn the new properties, and how to use them to spice up your website. This class is mostly lecture-driven, so you don't need to bring a laptop unless you'd like to look on at the slides on your computer. The class will run from 7-9pm.

Note: You must sign up with your full name, and you must sign in at the front desk on the 3rd floor.

Because we must have the class list in advance, registration closes the day before this class.

We will cover a wide range of the many new CSS3 effects, including:

Gradients Adding shadows to text and elements alike Rounded corners Element Transforms (scale, skew, rotate, translate) Adding Animation with CSS3 Transitions How to gracefully fall back to CSS2 in older browsers with the Modernizr library This course is taught by Alexis Goldstein, a co-author of the book "HTML5 and CSS3 for the Real World."

Pre-requisite: The Intro to HTML/CSS class, or a working knowledge of HTML/CSS.

If you would like to try out the new CSS3 properties in class, bring a laptop with your favorite HTML editor!

If you don't have one, try Aptana studio version 3.0. It’s available at: http://www.aptana.com/products/studio2/download. Please also ensure you have either Chrome, Firefox or Safari browser installed.

Please note our refund policy: Your payment of $30 guarantees your seat in the course. If something changes after registration and you cannot attend the course, you must notify us at least 3 days before the first class to receive a refund.
