You remember: To celebrate the relaunch of our official Google+ Page we decided to do you (and us) some good. We decided you should be able to win a high-grade smartphone, while we hoped to strengthen and extend our followership over at G+: a classical win-win situation for the two of us. Last weeks winner has been drawn, so let’s go for the last of four N4. Conditions of partaking are even easier to meet, so read on and secure the last chance…

Webdesigner’s Basics: 10 Questions You Need To Be Able To Answer


  
diaper-w550 Wouldn't it be fun to let our readers test their knowledge through a quiz once in a while, we thought over here at Noupe HQ. As we like to play these kinds of games, we assume you might too. Our first quiz covers some of the basics of HTML from past to present. Don't expect full coverage, we only got 10 questions to go. Have a try!

Nettuts+ Quiz #12: Quirky HTML Tags

Taking a break from the relatively technical focus of the past few quizzes, we’re going to do something very offbeat today. Yes, Offbeat with a capital O. Be it front end or back end programming, I’m sure you’re working with HTML tags every day. But as the saying goes, can you ‘catch ‘em all?’ Or rather, can you figure out what these rarely used HTML tags do?

I can already hear you chuckling with mirth, grasshopper. I’ve added a few deprecated tags just to keep you on your toes. Get everything right and prove that your HTML-fu is strong!

Nettuts+ Quiz #11: Do You Know SQL?

In 2012, we plan to take our quizzes to a whole new level with ones aimed at all languages and catering to all competencies and tastes. This month, we’re covering a little SQL.

With more frameworks being bundled with an ORM, SQL is quickly becoming a lost art and is mostly relegated to the nerdiest of our clan — those pesky database people. Why not take today’s quiz and see whether you DB-chops have really gone the way of the dodo?

Nettuts+ Quiz #10: Basic CSS3 Techniques

In 2012, we plan to take our quizzes to a whole new level with ones aimed at all languages and catering to all competencies and tastes. This month, we’re covering some basic concepts and techniques in CSS3.

The prime focus today is on the easier, more accessible portions of CSS3. If you’re a hardcore CSS3 fan, don’t worry — transitions, animations, gradients and media queries are on the way!

Nettuts+ Quiz #9: The Absolute Basics of PHP

In 2012, we plan to take our quizzes to a whole new level with ones aimed at all languages and catering to all competencies and tastes. But what better language to start off the new year than PHP, the darling of the masses?

In this test, aimed at beginners, your knowledge of the absolute basics of PHP will be tested. Yes, we know PHP is a bit old school but it still powers a massive portion of the web and is a force to be reckoned with. And don’t get complacent with the difficulty level of this test either! More difficult ones are on the way — we just like to take it nice and slow. Or maybe we like lulling you into a false sense of security…

Nettuts+ Quiz #5: CSS Specificity and Cascading

A lot of developers think that CSS is a complete pushover to master. While it’s true that the ceiling is a little lower compared to others, it can still make you want to tear your hair out!

In this month’s quiz, you’ll be testing out your mastery of how CSS rules are applied.


Quiz Scenario

This will be the HTML code against which the CSS will be tested. Have it opened up in another window if needed.

<div id="main" class="container">
    <p id="foo" class="bar boo">Something clever goes here</p>
</div>

As an alternative, here is the JSBin page.

The answer is the color of the text in the page after the CSS given in the question is applied. Simple as that!

Good luck, ladies and gentlemen! And let us know if there are any specific topics that you’d like covered in the upcoming quizzes.





A Few Notes

This quiz isn’t meant to be hard or confusing but it invariably turned out so. If you have a strong grasp of CSS, this is a cakewalk but if that’s not the case, this will be a difficult test.

This topic today was also chosen in a tentative step towards real world applicability of tested knowledge. Any one who has maintained CSS will attest to the skills that are being tested today.
