The style I chose was based off of Google’s format, and that was probably the most fun part of this project for me. I chose my e-commerce site to be a Music based, directing users towards concerts in their area using the information gathered from the Registration page. It was really fun to make the theme centered around music. I connected a concerts section connected to what was searched in Scroogle that worked as my e-commerce site.
Here’s my site!
The site "When Can I Use" is a terrific resource for understanding browser support for emerging CSS properties.
As noted in my recent message to the class mailing list, new CSS properties completely transform our approach to multiple column layouts. This will be very useful for responsive design and for attempts to incorporate grid systems.
The only catch is that not all browsers support these new specifications. For example, IE 9 cannot handle the multiple column tags. IE 10, which will eventually become the standard browser on Windows platforms, does support the columns.
When using any of these emerging CSS properties, you need to first determine which browsers will support them. You can find the answers at a site called When Can I Use (http://caniuse.com). The site lists all of the CSS properties and explains the extent of their browser support.
The talk that Kathryn Cornelius delivered yesterday was both inspirational and informative. Before we all head out on Spring Break, I wanted to jot down key take-aways from her presentation. Near the end of class, she mentioned that she gets new ideas by browsing web galleries such as Design Fridge, CSS Mania, and The Best Designs.
Additional notes from Kathryn’s presentation follow the break.
This a cropped portion of a longer web comic by Brad Colbow. Visit his personal site for the complete archive of web development themed comic strips.
This short video highlights the key arguments from Eisenhower’s farewell address, reducing a lengthy speech to a compelling clip that is only 151 seconds long. Of course it goes without saying that there was not a somber musical score in the background when President Eisenhower originally delivered this speech. If you’ve never watched this clip, it is definitely worth three minutes of your time.
However, this assignment was simple and pretty straightforward. I felt confident going in when making this badge and I believe the “6 Best Blogs To Follow If You Are A Web Designer” was one of the most useful, because the majority of the work I feel took place in just searching for different websites that focused on HTML and Web design rather than creating the actual site itself. So overall I didn’t have any problems and I’m so excited about how much I’ve improved on my coding skills! Yay HTML Intermediate Badge!
