Synopsis for Essential CSS 3 training course

It's not just a pretty face, few people get below the surface of CSS and use its incredible depth of functionality.

Cascading Style Sheets are used when web developers need to design interesting and exciting web pages. So it's just used to make text a different colour? It’s a four day course, that can be taught in a few minutes !

CSS is one of the four main skills needs by web developers; HTML, JavaScript, PHP and of course CSS. We teach three of these, HTML we feel although the renderer of everything created and used by the other three, can be picked up without our training services.

Ideally Delegates should attend all three of our courses in no particular order although we recommend PHP, JavaScript then CSS.

What is CSS? Amongst other things CSS is a way of standardising the look and feel of web pages across the entire site, imagine for example, that a big website is created and maintained by a team of 12 people, each of the, responsible for an area of the site; One is a hipster who likes brown colours and a Victorian text font, another is a Goth who likes everything to be black and greys, you get the idea ? all in all a team with different taste and styles … and here is where CSS comes in, each individual can create the content they need for their various pages, but CSS can be used as the standard for colour, fonts, sizes and feel, in other words, presenting a professional and uniform looking website.

You are probably reading this synopsis of the CSS course on a handheld device, maybe your phone or a tablet, as a web developer we don’t know what you'll be using to view this, therefore CSS has to be used to give different renderings of the page according to the size of the device being used, this page, to use an example varies its text size according to the size of the screen being used, it’s the same page but if you view it in landscape, images will change size compared to their portrait version. This happens because we have CSS sets in the background reacting to your device and browser. If you are viewing on a desktop, the page will have the same content but will be rendered differently because we have a lot more real estate to fill.

So we have covered a few basic uses of CSS, reacting to device, varying and standardising look and feel but there is still a lot more to CSS. Did you know for example, CSS is now used for formatting the output of data, in the old days, web developers used the <table>, <tr> and <td> tags to create lines and columns of records? Nowadays CSS is used to control the 'stripes and rows' as we refer to it.

We're not going to tell you much more about what's in the course, below the synopsis we have reproduced the course index for you to review, all in all this amounts to 800 slides presented and discussed over a four day course.

Standard courses commence at 9am and finish each day at 4pm, this of course is flexible, if the Delegates need more time to work on the exercises or absorb some points, our Consultants will stay until everyone is happy.

When we are presenting our courses at your venue we can also offer you not only the choice of start date (weekends are not unheard of) but also the start and end times, this will allow your Delegates to fit the course in with their normal routine, recently on of our clients requested a 10am start so that the Delegates could attend various staff meetings each morning … happy to oblige !

Just before we finish, we forget … did we mention that you can change the colours of a font using CSS ?? ;-)

We're not going to tell you much more about what's in the course, below the synopsis we have reproduced the course index for you to review, all in all this amounts to 800 slides presented and discussed over a four day course.

Standard courses commence at 9am and finish each day at 4pm, this of course is flexible, if the Delegates need more time to work on the exercises or absorb some points, our Consultants will stay until everyone is happy.

When we are presenting our courses at your venue we can also offer you not only the choice of start date (weekends are not unheard of) but also the start and end times, this will allow your Delegates to fit the course in with their normal routine, recently on of our clients requested a 10am start so that the Delegates could attend various staff meetings each morning … happy to oblige !

Just before we finish, we forget … did we mention that you can change the colours of a font using CSS ?? ;-)
