CSS Grid Course

Coding guru and whiz Wes Bos put together a free online course on CSS Grid. I recently finished the course and have to say it was awesome!

Like his other courses, Wes focuses on the things that are important and gets right to it. There’s not a lot of chit chat and useless conversation—it’s all about the coding. I followed along with him (he gives all of the exercise files and more) and was really impressed by the way in which we go from zero to a full grid layout in a matter of minutes. He’s so fast in the code editor, you can tell he codes everyday. There were many times I had to pause the videos to catch up.

There are 25 lessons and the first 18 – 19 are all about the nuts and bolts of grid and how it works. There are several exercises and explorations on grid properties and situations. Then he progresses into practical applications of grid for responsive design, as an alternative to Bootstrap, for image galleries and more. It really comes together in the last 5 videos.

There are some golden nuggets in the first video in terms of his setup and how he uses NPM browser watch that really is a great productivity increase. He even sprinkles in some JavaScript. I highly recommend it.
