Tips for Working with CSS
- Think of every setting/option in css as a sentence. It has to end with punctuation (in this case ";") or the computer will have a hard time understanding what you are telling it to do.
- Text that is surrounded by "/*" and "*/" is ignored by firefox/chrome/etc. and is meant for the programmer to explain their code to the person reading it.
- Everything is case sensitive in CSS, so "Background-Color" and "background-color" aren't seen as the same thing to the computer.
- While looking through the HTML of this website, if you don't know what something is, just search for it and you will find an explanation for it.
- There are many good websites and youtube videos that teach you how to write CSS. I'd recommend NOT paying for a "bootcamp" or some course on it. You can easily learn CSS yourself, even if you don't know much about technology yet. You just need to know how to google or ask questions.
