  • Overview
    Our Responsive Web Design Course trains students in the core technologies of modern responsive web design: HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. HTML is used for semantic markup, CSS3 defines presentation, and JavaScript implements behavior. Many web sites use the jQuery JavaScript library to simplify coding. The Response Web Design course shows students how to apply these technologies together, combined with the popular jQuery utility framework, to create rich web sites that adapt to a wide range of client devices, using the techniques of Responsive Web Design.
    In this five day training class students explore these crucial technologies. It starts with HTML, continues with CSS and concludes with JavaScript fundamentals, jQuery and Responsive Web Design. The class includes numerous hands-on labs allowing students to use all of these technologies together to build web sites.
