  • Course details

    Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a stylesheet language that allows you to control the appearance of your webpages. In this hands-on course, Christina Truong demonstrates the concepts that form the foundation of CSS, explaining what you need to know to tweak existing CSS and write your own. Christina explains how to add colors and other design elements to take your webpages beyond just black text on a white background. She shows how to use selectors, how the box model defines the spacing and sizing of page elements, and how to style text and manage basic layouts with Flexbox and Grid. She also covers working with advanced selectors, creating fluid layouts, and determining when to use the float and position properties. Plus, at the end of the course, you'll walk away with an actual project—an online résumé page.

    - CSS is a fundamental part of web design because it controls how your web pages look. Without it, websites would only be able to display text on white backgrounds. Use CSS to take your plain HTML websites to the next level. Whether you're just trying to customize your Squarespace page or contemplating a career switch, learning the fundamentals of CSS from the ground up gives you the ability to do everything from tweaking existing CSS to writing your own. Hi, I'm Christina Truong, and I invite you to join me for my course on LinkedIn Learning where I'll cover all the foundations of CSS. Starting from how CSS is structured to frequently used CSS styles and the various ways CSS let's you layout a page. By the end of this course you'll have an actual project, an online portfolio and resume page that you have styled in CSS.
