Before writing CSS, it's good to set up your files and add all the required HTML. Learn how in this video.
- [Instructor] Now that we've talked about browsers,…text editors, and HTML,…we're ready to start setting up our project files.…In this course, we'll be learning CSS…by applying each concept to a final project,…this resume page.…Be sure to hang onto your projects,…because we'll continue to build on it in the next course.…Since this course focuses on CSS,…I'll be providing the starting HTML markup…so we can dive into the CSS right away,…but you can customize the content however you wish.…But make sure to keep the HTML structure…pretty much the same to be able to follow along…with the exercises throughout the course.…
I'll also be providing placeholder content resources…if you don't have specific personalizations to add just yet,…or take a moment now to think about…what content you'd like to add based on this example.…The great thing about learning how to code…this page yourself is you can always come back…and update it later.…Let's start with making a folder…to hold all the files we'll need…to build the course project.…
