CSS - The Complete Guide 2020 (incl. Flexbox, Grid & Sass)

Learn CSS for the first time or brush up your CSS skills and dive in even deeper. EVERY web developer has to know CSS.

  Enroll in Course

CSS - short for Cascading Style Sheets - is a "programming language" you use to turn your raw HTML pages into real beautiful websites.

This course covers it all - we start at the very basics (What is CSS? How does it work? How do you use it)? and gradually dive in deeper and deeper. And we do this by showing both practical examples as well as the theory behind it.


Getting started with CSS might look easy but there actually is a lot of depth to CSS - hence this course provides different "Tracks" or "Entry points" to exactly meet your demands and reflect you current knowledge level:

  • The Basics Track: Start from scratch, learn CSS from the ground up. You start with lecture 1 and simply follow through to the end.
  • The Advanced Track: You already know the CSS basics, you know what selectors are and how it works but you want to dive in deeper and learn some advanced features and usages.
  • The Expert Track: You got the advanced knowledge, too, but you want to dive into things like Flexbox, CSS Grid, CSS Variables or Sass. This track is for you.

Of course this course offers the theory and practical examples - we'll build an entire real course project throughout the course - but there also are multiple assignments, quizzes and challenges for you to practice individual concepts taught throughout the course.

Talking about the course project - we'll build the frontend (no backend) of a fictional web hosting company. We'll have a starting screen which has different sections, we got a responsive design with an animated side-drawer, we got modals and forms and in general we got a lot of CSS animations, font styles and more!

Here's what's inside the course in detail - this is all also applied to the mentioned course project:

  • The basics about selectors, combinators and how you set up styling rules in general
  • Properties, values and decalarations
  • How specifity and inheritance work and why it's called "Cascading" Style Sheets
  • Important theoretical concepts like the "Box Model"
  • How the default position of elements can be changed
  • Styling backgrounds (e.g. gradients) and images
  • Which units and dimensions you typically use in CSS (px, rem, % and more)
  • How JavaScript and CSS interact
  • Responsive design and what "Mobile First" means
  • Styling forms and form inputs
  • Working with text, fonts and text styles
  • Flexbox! How it works and how to use it
  • Using the CSS Grid and how it differs from Flexbox
  • Transforming and animating HTML elements with the help of CSS
  • Writing future-proof CSS with features like CSS variables or best-practice class names
  • Using Sass and what it actually is all about

  • you started with learning web development and you want to build more beautiful websites

Mohammad Agha

After hating CSS in university, i really wanted to study a CSS course to improve my knowledge and to remove that hate. I'm looking to be a web developer and for sure i can't keep on hating CSS whenever i see it. Thankfully this course did the trick and now I'm in love with how CSS is really awesome and fun to work with.

Carlos Barbosa

It was a great learning! I have reviewed all my basic and advanced CSS knowledge and I filled my lack. All expert track is a lot of new knowledge for me.

As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses, more than 1,000,000 students worldwide as well as a successful YouTube channel is the best proof for that.

The most rewarding experience for me is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, work on amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.

That's why, together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience and to share the pleasure of learning with our students.
