HTML5 and CSS3 New Features

Power up your existing web design knowledge in HTML and CSS with the new capabilities of HTML5 and CSS3. HTML5 and CSS3 represent the cutting-edge of contemporary web technologies. With new tags for video and audio, HTML5 eliminates the need to use third-party plugins like Flash and Silverlight to embed media into the page. New structural tags like 'header' and 'footer' allow for more accessible and legible code, and the language's syntax has been simplified. Forms now include built-in validation and an auto-suggestion attribute, which make building forms and filling them out much more enjoyable and efficient for developers and web users. CSS3 has several new properties and features as well. Popular stylistic effects are easier than ever to implement. Rounded corners, drop shadows, complex gradients and resizable backgrounds all have their own properties. Transitions and animations are also easy, and no JavaScript is required! This training will also explore how to code for browsers that don't support HTML5 or CSS3. Staying at the forefront of web technologies is vital in a fast-changing internet world. Our HTML5 and CSS3 training will give you a jump-start, and put you ahead of the game. Upon completing this training, you will be able to:
