Intro to CSS Class for Trade School Indy

I gave the second of two classes on Web stuffs—Intro to CSS—for Trade School Indy on Wed, 12 March, 2014.

Slides From the Presentation

Additional Resources

Learn CSS Layout—this is a clearly written explanation on how to layout your content using CSS. It covers the most common techniques, showing the pros and cons of each.

Beginners Guide to HTML & CSS—This dives into many aspects of HTML and CSS and is easy to read.

Team Treehouse is a subscription service for learning a lot of online skills. You can learn HTML and CSS, as well as a whole lot more. You can also download the videos and keep them on your computer.

Code School is another subscription learning service for online skills. They have more robust tests than Team Treehouse above but the videos aren’t as entertaining.

W3Schools—this is an excellent resource to look up specific questions on CSS. It is also has teaching tools to play with CSS.

CSSDesk—If you’re looking to play around with CSS, this is the site for you. Edit the HTML and CSS here to help you figure out how things work.

Once you’re ready for the more advanced stuff, you’ll likely start finding answers at CSS Tricks. Chris Coyier does an excellent job of breaking down complicated subjects.

I also recommend that you check out my Intro to HTML post for other tools.
