Intermediate CSS: Zombie in a Cocktail Dress
The apocalypse happened, but don't despair. There's still one way to fight the zombies and it's not with a shotgun. It's building websites. Crazy? Unbelievable? Fantastic? True. And this is just the book to level up those zombie stomping CSS skills
What You'll Beat Zombies With
The more zombie butt you kick the better it is for the human race, so once you have a basic understanding of CSS, this book will take your zombie butt kicking to a whole new level. We'll discuss specificity wars, pseudo classes, pseudo elements, how to kick zombies in the @font-face, CSS operators, attribute selectors, and how to take your styles to a whole new medium entirely: print.
How You'll Learn to Smack Zombies Around
You won't just passively take in the view, like a zombie shuffling across the mainland. You'll have plenty of combat practice with analogies, examples, and code tutorials you can build, break and fix again. Working with your hands and your head you'll craft code that pleases the eye and knocks a zombie into last Tuesday.
All the code and directions are provided as both codepen tutorials and downloadable html files, so you can fight the apocalypse how and where you like. You can work with them on the codepen site or on your own device.
And later you'll bring those skills together in a final project that cements those skills into zombie smashing muscle memory.
Are zombies just a gimmick? Why would this be any better than a straight laced book that sticks to the facts?
Straight laced books are often straight boring. And if you have insomnia problems go buy that book. The author, John, has read the boring books and knows that staying awake and engaged are also important for learning. But this book uses zombie references and analogies not just to make you smile, but to help the material stick. If a tough technical concept is related in silly terms you understand, like a zombie trying to buy gum at a super market, it's much more likely to stay in that brain those zombies are intent on eating.
If you're looking to pack more zombie punch per ounce, this one's for you. So saddle up your post-apocalyptic ride, hit that buy button, and let's start punching those zombies in the face.
