A Love/Hate relationship with CSS

Colorful Ride

Colorful Ride

This week I have been coding using CSS. I have learned how to change font- family, color, background, add links and images to my website. Those were the simple things. I wanted to go the extra mile and took it upon myself to learn how to create navigation bar ;).

 

At the beginning of the week I was having a hard time understanding some properties of CSS.  It took me two days before anything actually made sense. I’m pretty sure it was because my 8 month old daughter is crawling now – at least that is my excuse and I am sticking to it. I realize this is just the first of many more challenges to come. I have to keep reminding myself that “I’m learning a new language”.

 

Class & Id’s along with floating are by far the most complicated CSS commands. However, I have met some great classmates on Mightybell that help me out if I get stuck. For the record I did get them to work. It just took me longer than I had hoped.:)

cross browser say what? #geektalk

 

Boiler plates over here, boiler plates over there…. aaahhh! One of my many assignment this week was to fix a ‘cross browser’ issue. To do this I was provided a Cross-browser boilerplate and told to add it to my code. If any issues arose I had to fix them. #troubleshooting already are we?

 

My thoughts on CSS thus far are.

 

CSS is cool but it’s mean. I have a love/hate relationship with it and as my instructor at Skillcrush.com said “CSS…It’s complicated”!

 

Finally, I wanted to share a great article on “which programming language you should learn first”.
