ADVANCED CSS LAYOUTS

Forget floats—learn the layout techniques experts love & employers demand!

Does the thought of dealing with floats make you cringe? Do you have a decent grasp of CSS and want to know all the tips and tricks to making layouts that will land you the job? Are you unsure if your code is efficient enough, or feel like your layouts are so cookie cutter they come with chocolate chips? Then say CS-YES to learning Flexbox and CSS Grid.

CSS Grid has quickly risen through the ranks of essentials in every front end developer’s toolbox. CSS Grid takes the guesswork out of making layouts with intuitive, simple syntax. When you combine this with the versatility of Flexbox, you’ll unlock the superhero-level layout powers that will boost your portfolio—and your job prospects.

Skillcrush Reviews

You don’t have to go back to school. You don’t need to be under 30, 40, or even 60. You don’t have to leave your job or take time off. You don’t even have to know a single thing about code—if you can download a file, you’re tech-savvy enough.

  • I used to work in retail and I just don’t see myself ever going back—my career outlook has completely changed! Now I am a Junior Developer at a small business that needs their site updated. I work directly with the Lead Developer to launch new products, debug issues, and alter styles for each viewport. The best part about my job is that I’m also being paid to learn!

  • My dream has literally come true and is really working. Now that I have tech skills, I work from home, earn a decent wage, spend time with my children, code (which I love), and continue to learn.
