If you are a developer using the Yahoo! User Interfaces then you are always looking for good resources for learning more about coding with the library.

  • Create consistent web pages using YUI CSS tools
  • Work with Containers—implementation, skinning, adding transitions, and tabs
  • Debug, maintain, and update applications with the Logger control
  • Examples included in the book:
