Let’s get Griddy with CSS Grid

CSS Grid is a brand new layout system in CSS! It’s not a framework or library – it’s an addition to the language that allows us to quickly create flexible, two dimensional layouts.

We can use it to place, size, align and architect designs that were previously difficult or even impossible with floats or flexbox.

CSS Grid may seem a bit daunting with new syntax and layout ideas, but it’s fairly simple and can be broken down into a handful of powerful concepts that when used together will blow your mind and change the way you create layouts for the web forever.

Ready?! Let’s Learn CSS Grid Together!

FREE: 30 Day Vanilla JS Coding Challenge

Beginner to Intermediate developers and designers who want to become comfortable with both JavaScript fundamentals and working in the DOM without a library. You should already know some JavaScript to start – This isn’t a JavaScript 101 course. We learn by application – encountering many new situations while talking about the hows, the whys and the whats that we use to solve them. We steer clear of opinionated design patterns, frameworks, libraries and any type of abstraction. These things are great and often needed, but can obstruct learning and constrain initial understanding. These tutorials rely heavily upon browser APIs, most of which involve interaction with the page. If you are stuck in console.log() land, these videos are your next step. Oh, the stuff we build is really fun!
