Video: Additional resources

I want to thank you for watching CSS Fundamentals. I hope that you feel better prepared to begin learning CSS and that you have a better overall understanding of how CSS works than when you started. I want to leave you with a couple of additional resources that I haven't yet mentioned in this title. Let's go ahead and take a look at those. The Web Developer's Handbook has one of the most massive lists of CSS resources that you'll find anywhere. They offer links to inspirational sites, tutorials, blogs, tools, and services, and more. Now, some of the links in tutorials are a little old, but that's actually not a bad thing.

I want to thank you for watching CSS Fundamentals. I hope that you feel better prepared to begin learning CSS and that you have a better overall understanding of how CSS works than when you started. I want to leave you with a couple of additional resources that I haven't yet mentioned in this title. Let's go ahead and take a look at those. The Web Developer's Handbook has one of the most massive lists of CSS resources that you'll find anywhere. They offer links to inspirational sites, tutorials, blogs, tools, and services, and more. Now, some of the links in tutorials are a little old, but that's actually not a bad thing.

Understanding some of the challenges that designers have faced over the years regarding CSS will give you a better perspective of its present state. Plus, many of the older links to tutorials features techniques that are still being used today. Since almost every tutorial or site that I would recommend you visit is already listed in the handbook, I just want to mention one or two more by name. SitePoint's CSS Reference is clear, concise, and easy to navigate. You can get the exact same information from reading the specifications, but SitePoint's Reference is easy to read, has fantastic examples, and even better, comes with a chart of browser support for the property that you are referencing.

This is a great reference for any designer, especially someone who is just starting out with CSS. I also highly recommend reading Chris Coyier's blog CSS-Tricks. Chris posts some pretty impressive demos here, although some of them might be a little complex for a beginner. What I really love about his blog though, is his clear approach to describing CSS and his focus on where it's going. This is a fantastic blog to read for both inspiration and staying informed with what's going on in the world of CSS. As always, I recommend checking out the large selection of CSS titles in the lynda.com Online Training Library as well. We're adding new ones all the time and feature CSS titles from some of the best minds in the business.

Well, that's all for now. Feel free to drop me a line on my blog, simpleprimate.com, or through lynda.com, and let me know how you're doing. I'd also love to have you join the conversation on Twitter. My username is @jameswillweb. Feel free to follow me and contact me there. Thanks again for watching, everyone, and I'll see you in my next lynda.com title.
