Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Nate Taylor, and welcome to my course, Applying Special Effects to a Site Using CSS. I am a solution architect and Aviture in Omaha, Nebraska. CSS can do a lot more than just control colors and layout. It can also define how objects transition from one state to another. It also is possible to create animations on your site using nothing but CSS. This course is designed to gradually walk you through various effects that you can add to your site using nothing but CSS. Some of the major topics that we will cover include rounding the corners of your objects, creating shadows underneath objects, changing the appearance of objects when their state changes, and even animating objects on your site. By the end of this course, you'll know how to round corners, add shadows, control how objects transition, and even perform those animations using nothing but CSS. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the fundamentals of CSS. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about CSS with the Applying Special Effects to a Site Using CSS course at Pluralsight.
