6.1 Final Thoughts

I hope you have learned a lot about what’s in store for CSS in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled, and many of these features may soon be fully supported.

6.1 Final Thoughts

Hello, and welcome back to the CSS of the future. It's difficult to talk about what lies ahead for the future of CSS, because the future of CSS changes, every day. Features that I've discussed in this course may, in the next few months, be completely taken out of the of the W3 specifications. Just because I've shown you some really exciting features in this course, doesn't necessarily mean that those features are all going to see the light of day when all is said and done. So even though I presented this in kind of a tutorial format, I want you to think of this as more of a demonstration of some of the things. That may lay in store for us in the next few months, or in the next few years, as it relates to CSS. But before we sign off, I just wanna remind you one more time of a couple of very helpful websites when it comes to learning more about what lies in store for CSS. And what features you can use right now. As we've seen before, if you go to the website you can get a lot of information about the current drafts of the current specifications. And usually when I come to the website it's thru a Google search. I very rarely just type in and then search for what I'm looking for. Now you can also find a lot of blog entries out there with people demonstrating various CSS features that will hopefully be coming to us one day. But keep in mind those blog posts aren't always up-to-date. If you wanna see the most up-to-date draft of what the W3C is working on. There's really no better place to look than the W3C website, and then the second website. I just wanna remind you about, I know we've talked about it a lot in this course, and that's the website. Again, this is a fantastic website for figuring out what browsers support the features that you're trying to use. As well as what vendor prefixes might need to be used or what features that might need to be turned on, that might not be turned on by default. So again, we've talked about a lot of features in this course. That some of which look like they're most likely gonna end up being a part of the official CSS specification some day. Some of which might be a little bit on the edge of fading, getting into obscurity. But at least it gives us a good ideas of the kind of things the W3C is discussing. The kind of things they're thinking about and hopefully the kind of things we can look forward to using in the next couple of years. Once again, my name is Craig Campbell. Thank you for watching and I'll see you next time.
