Learn How To Style Web Pages With CSS Starting 3/2

CSS

What is CSS, you ask?

It’s Cascading Style Sheets and it is what designers use to style web pages. With CSS we add art direction – typography, layout, color and background images to our pages.

My next CSS class on FIT campus  starts Sunday, March 2 and ends the following Sunday. We go from 10 AM – 5Pm and if you’re nice to me  I will even let you take me to lunch.

Here are the topics we do with hands on exercises and demonstrations:

1. Smart ways to set font size.
2. Working with color and background properties.
3. Tried and true layout techniques.
4. Rollover navigation without javascript.

Plus we will get a good look at what Responsive Design is all about.

Yes, CSS3 is built into what I teach.

Since most web sites today are built upon a pre-existing framework I will introduce you to that idea as well. And if you have ever seen me create a customized WordPress theme and want to do it yourself this class is a must!!

This class is good for anyone but web design and developer wannabes wool love it the most. You will need to know some HTML before you take this class.

Now Go And Register Before It’s Too Late!!

 

Bud Kraus teaches CTD 600 Web Design: HTML , CTD 605 Web Design: Cascading Style Sheets, and CTD 613: WordPress.

4 Reason To LOL About Learning Online

Thinking of taking an online class, like my Web Design class, here at FIT?

Let me give you some reasons that you will not see any where else on why learning online just might be fore you.

  1. You can eat anything you want in class. Order a pizza and a coke and spill it over your keyboard. No one will tell you that you can’t have food in the lab.
  2. You can wear anything you want. Fashion is totally up to you when you take an online class. Work in your T-shirt or even a little less.
  3. When you get up at 2am, rather than eat a piece of chocolate cake, you can feed your brain with something good to learn.
  4. Didn’t swallow a bottle of Scope just before class? Not to worry. Bad breath is not a problem.
