Hey everyone! Welcome to Practical CSS Grid! Now, you’re here, so you’ve obviously heard that CSS Grid is “the new hotness.” I’m here to tell you, though, it is the biggest dynamic shift in web design since the invention of CSS itself. It changes everything from the way we build sites to the way we design sites.
In this course, I’ll walk you through some basic terminology for grid, and then we’ll dive right in to practical examples with design patterns you’re used to, remixed in new and interesting ways!
Before we get started, let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Bryan Robinson and I’ve been a professional designer and developer for well over a decade now. I’ve worked in house on large projects and on small to medium websites for agencies. Now, I focus on teaching modern development practices to designers and developers via my company Code Contemporary.
I started researching Grid about 5 months before it was fully implemented, after watching multiple videos from Jen Simmons — a personal hero of mine. She was talking about the future of web design and I was intrigued. I even converted my blog over to CSS Grid behind feature queries before Grid was in any browser.
This course is really the culmination of a now years-long infatuation with this amazing CSS Feature. I’m really excited to share practical examples of how to get Grid up and running. Thanks for joining the course, and let’s get going!
