About the content

Any meaningful experience on the web has a form. Whether it's a form made of text boxes, toggles, buttons, checkboxes, or touchable widgets, web developers need to be purposeful about forms to make users happy and increase [conversions](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversion_marketing). In this course, you'll learn best practices for modern forms as taught by Google's Ido Green and Udacity's Cameron Pittman. You'll practice your skills along the way with a few self-directed projects, including an e-commerce checkout and an event planner app! As a special treat, you'll also watch a series of interviews with Luke Wroblewski, Google Product Director and author of [Web Form Design](http://www.lukew.com/resources/web_form_design.asp), to get his take on interactions for the modern web.
