Here you will learn some of the basics that will help you in your journey with Cascading Style Sheets.
CSS is used for styling web pages and website layouts. The main prerequisite for this course is that you are already familiar with HTML.
The syntax of CSS is really simple.
selector {
  property_1: value_1;
  property_2: value_2;
  property_3: value_3;
selector is which elements to select, property is which attributes to set, and value is which values to set.
We will discuss in detail all about selectors and CSS properties in the next lessons.
