0:00 In our previous section together we built some really cool webpages we used some HTML5 techniques to build some really nice forums that work
0:09 doing client-side validation and accepting just the right kind of input, giving lots of feedback. But what we did not do is make those sites look good.
0:18 One of them looked straight out of 1996, on purpose and all the other ones we were going to build if we built them, they would look that way too
0:25 because we hadn't talked about CSS and design and that sort of thing. That's what this chapter is all about.
0:31 Taking just client-side HTML, whether that's generated through some kind of server-side framework a frontend JavaScript framework
0:38 or however you get it, and making it look really nice and learning just enough about web design to be comfortable and getting our sites to work
0:47 the way we want. Often, web design can be something super frustrating for people who are like
0:52 I would love to write a website but I don't know web design and I'm not a designer, I'm not a graphic artist I'm not artistic or creative or whatever
0:59 you don't need any of that stuff. You'll see there's a bunch of clear little steps and clear little topics that you need to learn
1:05 and then you'll be quite capable with web design. Then you go and find some assets, other places we'll talk more about that as we get into the chapter.
1:14 I think everyone can do web design and I'm going to show you what I consider to be the foundational core elements
1:21 things you have to know to be successful here.
