The Northeast University CSS Code will teach you how to write CSS in a way that is easy to understand and maintain. At the end of this book, you’ll learn how to use CSS to create a modern website, with all of this code to keep you organized and productive.
The first lesson is you might want to start with something simple first. The CSS code in this book is meant to be simple and not too deep. One of the simplest examples is the top menu bar. I like to start with something with a clear structure.
I like to do that first because if you start writing your code, it’ll feel like an exercise, and you will probably stop if you get stuck somewhere. Writing code that will be easy to read, understand, and maintain is a good thing. But just like with our blog posts, if you start with a simple concept, it can easily be broken up so that you can learn something new and expand your understanding of CSS.
A simple example should start off with a simple design. The first thing you should do is start with a simple header. The second thing you should do is a header. And so on.
This is the main problem with the blog posts we’ve done so far. In each post, we’ve built a concept (we’ve also used it to make our websites more visually interesting) and then we’ve broken it up and told you what it does. That’s it. That’s the whole point of this blog post. But in our case, we haven’t done that. Instead, we’ve broken up the concept and told you what it does, like a lesson in code.
So what’s the problem with that? Well, if you have a simple concept that you are also using to build a website that is also visually appealing, you are bound to break it up into too many pieces. What you need to do is break up the concept into smaller, more intuitive bits and pieces. And then you need to tell your readers what each bit does, like what this one piece does, like this one piece of code does.
In general, a good idea is to create your idea of the structure of a good idea, and then make it so that it’s easy to pull together, and then make it interesting.
I believe it’s a good idea to give readers a little bit of context on how these things work, as well as the other things you need to know about them.
So you should explain what the code is doing, what it does, and how to use it. Most importantly, you should explain how you plan to use it. You should describe what the code is, and why its important. It also helps if you make it clear what you want the code to do.
