> Hi all,
> Wednesday Evening, June 1, 2022, at 7pm Eastern Daylight time Steve Litt
> gives his "HTML and CSS: What you need to know" presentation at the
> monthly GoLUG online meeting.
> When: 7pm Eastern Daylight time on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. Starts right
> at 7pm Eastern Daylight Time.
> Where: https://meet.jit.si/golug
> Subject: HTML and CSS: What you need to know.
> HTML is the foundation of web page construction. No matter what tools
> you use, they eventually boil down to HTML. CSS (Cascading Style
> Sheets) is the modern foundation of web page appearance, decoration,
> and to some extent behavior. All quality tools eventually apply
> appearances via CSS. Consider the following:
> * A deep understanding of HTML and CSS improves understanding of higher
> level web construction tools.
> * A deep understanding of HTML and CSS gives the term "full stack
> developer" a whole new meaning.
> * Making your HTML5 also well-formed XML yields huge benefits in
> debugging, portability, and getting the output you envisioned. Doing
> this is trivially easy.
> * HTML and CSS are all that's necessary to make a responsive,
> mobile-friendly web page.
> * A deep understanding of HTML and CSS plus a zen-coding editor often
> make direct HTML/CSS authoring easier and quicker than some of the
> higher level tools.
> * A deep understanding of CSS makes a world of difference in the
> appearance of quick-author methods such as Markdown, Asciidoc, and
> reStructuredText. Get the best of both worlds.
> * Markdown (or other "wiki" languages) plus tokens plus simple Python
> programming plus a deep knowledge of HTML and CSS produces amazing
> results from the fastest authoring environments.
> * Each HTML element has a peer in the Document Object Model (DOM),
> XML parser (assuming the HTML5 is also XML).
> Topics discussed include the following:
> * Container type HTML elements
> * Non-container type HTML elements
> * Making your HTML5 also be well-formed XML
> - Debugging your XMLized HTML5
> . Much easier than debugging non-XML HTML5
> * The extreme benefits of styles-based authoring
> * Structure of a CSS Style
> * HTML5 validation
> * Making your page responsive
> - Mobile-first authoring
> * Mobile-friendly testing
> If you have anything to do with web authoring or would like to in the
> future, this presentation is for you.
> What is GoLUG? Greater Orlando Linux User Group, Orlando Florida.
> Who will be there? Folks from Orlando Florida, all over the United
> States, and likely internationally.
