Upgrade your selection skills using CSS3 selectors to build modern websites
CSS is a deceptively simple presentation language that has significantly developed over the last few years. Front-end developers need to keep style sheets manageable and organized by taking a modular approach to building a website.
Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
In this Video Learning Path, we start off with a brief review of the foundations of CSS by using a good text editor to automate your authoring and set up a CSS baseline.
We then move on to explore the power of CSS3 selectors and how they can be intelligently leveraged to create powerful interactive sites.
As we proceed, we'll master the usage of a wide array of selector techniques and tricks, manipulating inner content, understanding structural selectors, and more.
By the end of this Video Learning Path, you’ll have complete control over every element of your web page to make it behave exactly the way you want it to.
This Learning Path is authored by some of the best in the field.
