- [Instructor] Howdy, my name is Carrie Dils and this course is your introduction to CSS. In this course we'll start with the basics of how CSS works with HTML and with browsers. I'll also share some context on the roots of CSS as a language and how it's continually evolving to give us even more control over the presentation of web pages. Then we'll take a look at some of the most common ways you'll see CSS used, and after that we'll cover the essentials of creating web page layouts with CSS. I'll even share some pro tips for working with CSS in a development project.
Finally, I'll introduce you to the concepts of responsive web design, a mobile first approach, and how you can use media queries to tailor web content for various device sizes. If you're a web designer or have thought about becoming a front end web developer then learning CSS is a must, and it just so happens that you're already in the right spot to do it.
