Class has still been pretty quiet on the CSS learning front, but it's time to move on.
You can always look at the syllabus to see where we are. Our previous class was the second part of the lesson HTML and CSS overview; Examining with browser developer tools. Next week, we will review the foundation of core2 layouts.
So, this week I want you to find some resources you might want to use for your layout. There's a list started here:
Feel free to suggest your favorites--for instance, I'm not sure what the landscape of image hosting is currently like since I have my own webhost.
I want you to think about the following:
- The color scheme for your layout. You'll need foregrounds (for text), backgrounds, and accent colors for things like links. If you are making an S2 layout, I recommend two sets of color schemes: one dark on light and one light on dark, to give you the best base to work from.
- Graphics you might want to use--backgrounds, accents, etc
- The positioning of layout elements you want to aim for--sidebars, no sidebars? What's in the header?
I totally recommend you chatter in comments about things you're thinking about and what you find that you like, along with giving your favorite resource recommendations.
