Video: Who is this course for?

One of the first things you'll notice about this course is that it's a little bit different than all the other CSS courses in the lynda.com Online Training Library. Because of that I thought I'd take a few moments here to describe what this course is, and who it's designed for. First you'll notice the discourse has no hands-on exercises. As part of the fundamentals series, it's designed to give you a high level overview of CSS, its history, concepts, and terminology. If you're new to CSS or need an overview of what CSS is, this course is for you.

As part of the fundamentals series, it's designed to give you a high level overview of CSS, its history, concepts, and terminology. If you're new to CSS or need an overview of what CSS is, this course is for you.

In fact, if you're brand-new to CSS, I recommend watching this course first before moving on to the more applied courses. I know it's sometimes tough to be an observer when you want to try things out on your own, but I have designed this course to make you more familiar with the concepts and terms that you'll encounter up while learning CSS. Being familiar with the terminology and having a overall understanding of how CSS works means that you'll be able to focus more on the individual concepts within the other CSS courses. I'd also highly recommend this course for someone that needs to be more familiar with the language of CSS without needing to author it themselves or for somebody that's just sort of curious about what CSS is and wants to test the waters to see if it's right for them.

So does this mean you should skip this course if you've had prior experience with CSS? Well, ultimately that's up to you, but if you're like me and you're largely self-taught you've probably missed a thing or two along the way or maybe you've just never focused on the big picture of how CSS works. This course will hopefully fill in some of those gaps and give you a clearer picture of how it all works together. After watching this course, I recommend moving on to my CSS Core Concepts course. It features hands-on exercises that reinforce many of the concepts you learn here.

I hope this gives you a clearer picture of what this course is all about. Let's dive in and start learning the fundamentals of CSS.
