How to Master CSS

Trying to get into web development? Either way, CSS is a core technology that every Web Dev needs to know. But, as experience can tell you, pages don't always render the way you want them to. Watch experts Christopher Harrison and Helen Zeng, as they show you the CSS ropes, in this informative and practical Web Wednesdays course.

These popular presenters teach you how to get CSS to do exactly what you want. Take a look at media queries, CSS preprocessors (like LESS), and page layouts on different screen sizes. See cool demos on reflowing, transitions, and more. You know that CSS is used everywhere, so find out what you need to get going with it!
