As web developers, our job often requires us to put a designer's hat on and make our Web sites look good, even if we're not the most artistically inclined person. In addition, we need to make sites look their best regardless of what device it's being viewed on. A user interface framework can help us tremendously for both.
Bootstrap 4 is a leader in those frameworks. Originally developed for use with Twitter, the framework (now on its fourth major release) gives web developers the tools that they need to build great looking websites while also being fast, small, and customizable.
Font Awesome has been around for a long time. It is the go-to library for many web developers to add icons to their project � but, it can do a lot more. With the recent release of Font-Awesome 5, they've added even more functionality - and a lot of new icons.
In this short course, Shawn will show you how to use the new version of the library, including some of the tricks he's learned for more than just icons, and talk about some best practices in using it in your project.
In this hands-on course based on his very popular Pluralsight videos, Shawn will show you how to build a website using the latest in Microsoft and open-source technologies. In this course, you will learn how to use ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET MVC, Entity Framework Core, Bootstrap, Angular and ASP.NET Identity.
Code reviews often get skipped when schedules are tight. It is only later when there are problems, that code reviews are often part of a postmortem analysis of a project, or are even part of an external review. In this course, Shawn Wildermuth will share with you lessons he's learned from doing many of these reviews for companies.
Building great looking websites that work well with different sized devices can be a challenge. By utilizing Twitter's Bootstrap 3 framework, you can meet that challenge head-on. Bootstrap 3 is a mobile-first responsive design framework for structuring your website's HTML. It includes a great grid system, responsive design, CSS typography and components to solve many of the most common design challenges that face web developers today.
Sometimes you just need to get a site up and running fast. Whether it be a blog, an event site, a wedding announcement or a new business idea. Getting a website working should be a quick and easy task for a developer. This course uses a variety of technologies including ASP.NET MVC, Web API, Entity Framework, Bootstrap, AngularjS and Azure Websites to build and deploy a website.
CSS is a great way to separate your design and markup during HTML development, but there are key pain points that make it more difficult than it should be. Dynamic stylesheet languages like LESS and SASS can make style sheets more readable, maintainable, and easier to write. This course dives into both LESS and SASS and shows you how powerful these languages can be.
