HTML & CSS Foundations
Advanced CSS Techniques
Once you have a solid understanding of the basics, you can begin to explore some advanced CSS techniques that can make your code more efficient. Grouping Selectors — Instead of using a single selector, you can group multiple selectors together and apply the styles to all of them at once. For example, you can group selectors together to apply a certain style to all elements inside a div> tag. Nesting Rules — You can nest rules within a selector to apply more than one rule to that selector. This can be useful for applying styles to a specific part of an article> tag. Using Pseudo-Elements — You can apply styles to elements that don’t actually exist in your HTML code. This can be useful for applying styles to the outside of a header> tag, which may include a h1> tag or other elements.
Debugging & Troubleshooting
Accessibility & SEO
When building a website or web application, it’s important to keep in mind accessibility and SEO25. Accessibility and SEO are two different things, but they’re both important for the longevity of a website. Accessibility is the ability of a website or application to be used by all types of users, regardless of their abilities. There are many things that can be done to make your website accessible to a wide audience, including: Using semantic HTML tags, such as h1> tags for the main title, p> tags for paragraphs, and ul> tags for unordered lists. Using img> tags correctly to provide a text alternative and alt attribute. Using ARIA attributes to provide information about the purpose of buttons and links. Keeping page content concise, clear, and concise.
Going Beyond the Basics
Keeping Current with Web Development
As you grow and evolve as a web developer, you’ll come across new languages, frameworks, and tools. It’s important to stay up to date with these new technologies, especially if you want to be successful. To do this, you’ll first need to understand what these new technologies are and what they do. Then, you’ll need to decide whether or not you want to learn these new technologies. If you do, you’ll need to find the resources and time for self-directed learning. You can also take classes and tutorials, or find a mentor.
