(PRWEB) February 05, 2014

Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its “CSS3 Dropdown Menus Tutorial,” an advanced-level course providing targeted instruction on how to create menus using CSS3 animations, allowing developers to build custom menus without employing JavaScript.

CSS3 offers a wide array of new features that allow developers to include custom design elements such as text effects, drop shadows, gradients, and more, reducing dependence on external platforms and software applications, and allowing users to save time and work more efficiently.

Infinite Skills' CSS3 Dropdown Menus Tutorial offers an in-depth guide to using some of these new features to include custom menus in your projects, allowing developers to work inside CSS3 to include features like animation and multi-tiered menus without employing external languages like JavaScript.

Course author Ben Jaffe is a freelance front-end web developer and instructor in the San Francisco Bay area. He has several years of experience in software development, teaching, and consulting. In addition to training and media development, Jaffe is the co-host of the radio show and podcast, Geek Speak.

Following an introduction to some key features of CSS3, Jaffe covers the basics of building a menu with CSS3, explaining hover functionality, selectors, how to employ new CSS3 properties, and finally how to work with CSS3 animations.

From there, the course teaches how to begin including these features in your menus, starting with building a simple menu that employs HTML, dropdown styling, and hover functionality.

The course teaches how to add advanced techniques to create a multi-level menu, starting with using basic HTML, and continuing to advanced topics such as how to use CSS3 to style various levels and add animation.

“CSS3 adds a whole bunch of new features to the CSS3 specification,” Jaffe explains, “allowing us to layout our pages in unprecedented and beautiful ways.”

“For me, CSS3 means being a web developer is a whole lot more fun. It means spending less time in Photoshop, and really allows you to get things done more quickly.”
