Create A Website: Styling (CSS Basics)

So you have created an HTML file, and it holds all your content, but it's lacking inspiration. It is time to add color to your world! In this second class in our Create a Website series, we are introducing a new language: CSS. CSS is the styling language for the web and it can make "most" of our web styling related dreams come true! With that said, CSS is a vast language with loads of possibilities and just like with everything, we must start small to one day go big. This class is geared towards CSS beginners, who have done some HTML work in the past. If you have never touched HTML before, we recommend you first take the Create a Website: Structure class to get all caught up. In this class, you will learn the basics of CSS, the styling language of the web. We will explore CSS usage, its syntax and best practices when it comes to CSS file setups. We will also look into key features of CSS such as the cascading model, and the specificity model. Finally we will put all that into practice by styling a simple web page using Codepen.io

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.
