About the Course

During this 2-day course, participants will learn the most popular, useful, and well-supported pieces of CSS3 through a series of practical but innovative projects. Participants learn by completing a number of practical exercises involving the new techniques of CSS3 to produce a finished web page or section of a page. Participants can adapt these exercises to their own projects, or use them as inspiration for completely different ways to creatively use the new properties, selectors and values they have learnt.

Who should do this course?

This CSS3 course is for web designers who already have experience using CSS, but want to take their sites and skills to the next level.

I was extremely lucky to be the only student in this class which gave me the opportunity to properly understand all topics taught during CSS3. The course was well structured and taught at the right pace. I am confident that I will retain everything covered during this course as the instructor explained all topics thoroughly with adequate detail. I will be back again!

Loved the course. Linda presented the material clearly, logically and with passion. Her whiteboard technique was exemplary, as was her interaction with students and knowledge of the topic. Plenty of extra resources and valuable website references added to the value of the course.
