More content is accessed on the web today than ever before. None of that content would be very appealing to customers with CSS - Cascading Stylesheets.
CSS allows us to add professional styles to our web projects. It also helps users determine which information is important to them, and find it quickly.
In this course, we'll be learning about the context of CSS - when and why it was created, and how it's changed since then. We'll look at an overview of CSS, including its main uses, how it is added to the website, and its primary features.
In the following two chapters, we'll learn and apply concrete examples of coloring, resizing, styling, and repositioning HTML elements.
By the end of this course, you will be equipped with knowledge that, combined with further learning and hard work, can make you a respectable candidate for most CSS developer positions. You can also continue your education with more advanced CSS topics.
