Organized, fast, efficient -- CSS done right!

About the book

CSS has grown from a language for formatting documents into a robust language for designing web applications. Its simplicity is deceptive, however. It belies the complexity of the box model, stacking contexts, specificity, and the cascade. CSS mastery lies in understanding these concepts and how to mitigate them.

This book will show you how to write better, more efficient CSS, and to take advantage of the plethora of the new cutting-edge CSS features available to the front-end developer. You’ll also learn to master tools that will improve your workflow.

  • Organize your CSS to create efficient, reusable, and maintainable code
  • Discover complex layout techniques: grid layouts, multi-column layouts, and more
  • Use advanced effects: transitions, transforms, filter effect, and animations
  • Take advantage of custom properties: re-use and dynamically control properties
  • Combine CSS and SVG to create seriously powerful graphics

This book is for designers and developers with some HTML and CSS experience.
