Web Accessibility

In this course you’ll get hands-on experience making web applications accessible. You’ll understand when and why users need accessibility. Then you’ll dive into the “how”: making a page work properly with screen readers, and managing input focus (e.g. the highlight you see when tabbing through a form.) You’ll understand what “semantics” and “semantic markup” mean for web pages and add ARIA markup to enable navigating the interface with a range of assistive devices. Finally, you’ll learn styling techniques that help users with partial vision navigate your pages easily and reliably.

Browser Rendering Optimizations

Performance matters to users. Web developers need to build apps that react quickly and render smoothly. Google performance guru Paul Lewis is here to help you destroy jank and create web apps that maintain 60 frames per second performance. You'll leave this course with the tools you need to profile apps and identify the causes of jank. You'll explore the browser's rendering pipeline and uncover patterns that make it easy to build performant apps.

Responsive Web Design

In this course you'll learn the fundamentals of responsive web design with Google's Pete LePage! You'll create your own responsive web page that works well on any device - phone, tablet, desktop or anything in between.

You’ll start by exploring what makes a site responsive and how some common responsive design patterns work across different devices. From there, you’ll learn how to create your own responsive layout using the viewport tag and CSS media queries. As you proceed, you’ll experiment with major and minor breakpoints, and optimizing text for reading.

Responsive Images

Did you know that images account for more than 60% of the bytes on average needed to load a web page?

In this course you will learn how to work with images on the modern web, so that your images look great and load quickly on any device.

Along the way, you will pick up a range of skills and techniques to smoothly integrate responsive images into your development workflow. By the end of the course, you will be developing with images that adapt and respond to different viewport sizes and usage scenarios.

Offline Web Applications

This course is focused squarely on user experience, and seeks to show developers how thinking offline-first is the best way to ensure that applications perform their best in all scenarios, not just ideal ones. You'll learn to recognize the differences between good, poor, intermittent, and missing connectivity for your users , and master how to make applications that navigate these conditions with ease.

Using the skills you master in this course, you'll conclude by building an app that that works both online and offline, and loads in new data when it can. You'll be a master of the cache! Your web apps will interact with the network just like native apps do. This will lead to better user experiences even in traditionally challenging connection scenarios like being stuck in a train tunnel, having to rely on over-crowded conference Wi-Fi, or traveling through a cellular “dead zone!”

Building High Conversion Web Forms

Any meaningful experience on the web has a form. Whether it's a form made of text boxes, toggles, buttons, checkboxes, or touchable widgets, web developers need to be purposeful about forms to make users happy and increase conversions.

In this course, you'll learn best practices for modern forms. You'll practice your skills along the way with a few self-directed projects, including an e-commerce checkout and an event planner app!

As a special treat, you'll also watch a series of interviews with Luke Wroblewski, Google Product Director and author of Web Form Design, to get his take on interactions for the modern web.
