CSS linear-gradient() and repeating-linear-gradient() functions allow to compute amazing gradients without the need to use external graphics software. On the other hand, SVG provides similar capabilities, are rendered inside browser the same as CSS gradients, yet you can create and customize the gradients in an external graphic tool such as Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Designer or free Inkscape, Figma, Canva etc.

In the next hour I will guide you through all the modern and legacy ways how to create and use a gradients on your site. We will start by creating linear gradients using CSS linear-gradient() function. Then we will produce more fancy gradients with the use of radial- and conic-gradient() CSS functions.

In the second section, we will use SVG – scalable vector graphics – and try to reproduce the effects from the CSS section. This will allow you to compare pros and cons of both technologies.

Finally, we will have some fun going legacy and seeing how the world looked when CSS did not have gradient creation capabilities, and when SVGs were barely supported.

This course is for you if you want to learn modern up-to-date CSS3 and SVG gradient skills in an agile, hands-on, no-nonsense manner. So don’t hesitate and enroll to this course for free!
