About CSS3 Workshop

Recent implementation of CSS3 features in modern browsers allow for greater design control and creativity in our Web sites.

In this three-hour workshop, attendees will learn about using colors through RGBa and opacity, multiple background and border images, text and box shadows, CSS-enabled gradients and transitions as well as laying out text in multiple columns.

In addition to font embedding techniques and third-party font bureaus, we look into designing with older browsers in mind when coding with CSS3. 

NOTE: You get a free copy of CSS Cookbook, 3rd Edition for attending! CSS Cookbook's new edition is almost three times as big as the first edition and covers the latest browsers and HTML5 and CSS3.
