Days 17–18: Kickin’ it old school with Team Treehouse

I’m the ultimate flip flopper. Apparently I can’t stick with just one tutorial & see it to completion. But whatever…that’s not the point of this update.

CSS is still a sore spot for me. I decided to reactivate my Treehouse subscription because I remembered that the videos are awesome & the challenges really help you to nail the information that you just learned.

Their library is extensive & thorough enough for my needs & I figured that I’d work my way through every single one of their CSS courses & workshops, starting with the beginner level & leveling all the way up to the advanced levels. Here’s what I’ll be working on for the next couple of weeks-ish:


  • CSS Foundations
  • CSS Selectors
  • CSS Layout Basics
  • CSS Layout Techniques
  • Framework Basics


  • CSS Beyond the Basics
  • CSS Flexbox Layout
  • The CSS calc() function
  • Build a Responsive Navigation with Flexbox
  • Animating SVG with CSS
  • Create ToolTips with CSS
