Responsive Web Design in the Browser

Lynda.com - Sun, 03/27/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: Morten Rand-Hendriksen

Released On: 3/28/2016

With all the web design software available, why would you design in the browser? We are living in a brave new world of responsive design. Websites can be read on mobile devices, tablets, desktops, and even on the smart watches on our wrists. Most static web design tools don't account for that. The browser is an endless, flexible canvas. It's a natural place to code, and its dynamic design surface and instant feedback allows for more responsive web designs.

In this course, Morten Rand-Hendriksen explains his approach to designing in the browser, which starts well before he even starts coding. He shows how to define the layout on paper and create a "language" for the site, and then builds a baseline document with HTML5. Then he uses CSS to guide the look of the site and the layout, using media queries and Flexbox to add responsive behaviors. In chapter 3, Morten improves the site's interactivity using CSS transitions and transforms. Finally, he reveals how to use these techniques to build WordPress themes in the browser.

Each step involves design strategies, best practices, and actual code examples that will turn the web browser into your new favorite design tool.

Learn Microsoft Azure: Active Directory

Lynda.com - Sun, 03/27/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: David Elfassy

Released On: 3/28/2016

Many administrators are familiar with Active Directory and its long history as Microsoft's premiere directory service. Active Directory is the key to managing access to resources and enterprise directories. Now Microsoft has released a service-based approach to Active Directory. It's a version that lives in the cloud, hosted in Azure, but can integrate in a hybrid scenario.

Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides most of the rich functionalities of Active Directory, with the conveniences of cloud-based computing. Azure AD also offers developers a great way to integrate identity management into applications. In this Azure training course, David Elfassy introduces the terminology and feature set in Azure AD. He shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multifactor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect makes sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) In the final chapters of the course, David reviews the more advanced reporting and features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premise Active Directory and Azure AD.

Audio for Video: Production and Post Sound Techniques

Lynda.com - Thu, 03/24/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: Scott Hirsch

Released On: 3/25/2016

Video producers are adept at making all the visual aspects of their carefully shot projects look great. However, when it comes to the sound, many suffer unnecessarily. Audio for Video: Production and Post Sound Techniques is aimed at video professionals who are looking to manage their audio better—from start to finish. The course will take a three-point approach to

  • Capturing audio and following the proper workflow for optimum results
  • Sound editing—improving and restoring audio in post-production
  • Mixing and exporting audio or preparing it for handoff to a professional audio engineer


The second and third steps feature Adobe Audition CC, a powerful audio post-production program with a host of tools to clean up, sculpt, and finesse your sound design. The seamless workflow to and from Adobe Premiere Pro makes it a powerful audio toolset. However, author Scott Hirsch's techniques work equally well in other video and sound editing applications. Watch this course to learn practical techniques for getting better sound in all your productions.
