HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery with Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5: Learn by Video

Video box and diskAfter years of slow progress, web designers face a host of new challenges and opportunities. Although still evolving, HTML5 and CSS3 have burst onto the scene far more quickly than anticipated. Thanks to widespread support in all recent browsers, many aspects are ready for use now—and if used correctly, they degrade gracefully in older browsers. But perhaps the biggest challenge and opportunity comes from the phenomenal speed at which web-enabled smartphones and tablets have spread. Designing and building a website has suddenly become more complex. Fortunately, JavaScript libraries, such as jQuery, reconcile browser incompatibilities and make light work of adding dynamic features to websites.

Dreamweaver CS5.5 has risen to the challenge by providing designers with the tools needed to build modern websites with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery. In this video course, which contains nearly eight hours of practical lessons, you'll learn which parts of HTML5 and CSS3 you can use now with confidence. It shows how to convert existing pages to HTML5 and build new ones from scratch. You’ll also learn how to create CSS3 effects—such as drop shadows, rounded corners, and transparency—without the need for images. In addition, the course shows how to choose the right CSS selector, knowledge that you’ll find indispensible not only for creating style rules, but also for working with jQuery.

The videos take you through the process of adapting for mobile phones and tablets a website that was originally designed for desktop computers. You’ll learn how to use CSS media queries to apply different styles depending on screen width, viewing the changes in real time in Dreamweaver’s Live view. The course concludes with an introduction to jQuery, and demonstrates how to enhance online forms with the help of Dreamweaver CS5.5’s built-in code hints for jQuery.

Note: This course is aimed at the intermediate to advanced level. The DVD is Mac/Windows compatible, and the videos cover both versions of Dreamweaver CS5.5.
