Skill Level Beginner
Well, we've come to the end of our look at CSS Visual Optimization. I hope that you enjoyed the course as much as I enjoyed teaching it, and I hope by now you have a better appreciation for what it takes to write clean optimized CSS, and I hope you understand the importance of doing so as well. If you're looking to take your CSS knowledge to the next level, here are some great courses from lynda.com online training library that I would recommend. If you're just getting started with CSS, you might want to check out James Williamson's CSS Fundamentals Course. This is a great course that takes you on a high level overview of cascading style sheets, and teaches you the basics of the CSS syntax.
Another great course for beginners is going to be CSS Page Layouts, also by James Williamson. In this course, James walks you through the basic concepts of controlling layouts with CSS and then shows you how to apply those techniques to create fixed, fluid, and yes, even responsive designs. I highly recommend this one. Finally, if you are a more advanced CSS user looking to improve your skills set, you might want to check out CSS with LESS and Sass by Joe Marini. This is a great course that teaches you the ins and outs of both LESS and Sass and shows you how to implement them into your workflow and hopefully cut down the development time of those really complex CSS documents.
Like I said before, it's been fun, and I'm happy you joined me for this course. Again, my name is Justin Seeley, and I hope to see you again real soon.
