    Understanding CSS3 Gradients
    04:59
    Refer here for the full tutorial: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/quick-tip-understanding...

    The process of creating an image only for the purpose of displaying a gradient is inflexible, and is quickly becoming a bad practice. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, they very well might still be required, but hopefully not for much longer. Thanks to Firefox and Safari/Chrome, we can now create powerful gradients with minimal effort. In this video quick tip, we'll examine some of the differences in syntax when working with the -moz and -webkit vendor prefixes.

    Waste of time

    Half the videos don't work, the rest are simply culled from YouTube and other sites, meaning this course is basically just a playlist someone put together.

  • Mohammad Assad Arshad
    What is the course about?

    I signed up because it is free, but frankly I dont get what the course is about?. A lot of the lectures are not even working.

  • Marek Przepiorka
    A very disappointing experience.

    It's not a course. It's just a bunch of random videos found on the web put together without any idea. Waste of time.

  • Rasmus Himmelstrup
    Many of the videos are not working

    Content is probably good, but when you can't get it, it sort of diminish the purpose of watching it.

  • Kaaviya Umapathy

    audio is not clear in some video
