What Students Say About My Web Design Courses

1) From my Flexbox course:

"Well explained. Efficient teaching. Great skill to learn for CSS. Already applying it to my code and saving time and headaches." - Shane
"Thanks to this course I've got the understanding that going to rework 70% of my current project just to optimize and even simplify the scripts and CSS.. time to wipe out few JS functions and referencing items =)"  - Dmitriy
"It just works. I was able to create most of a "holy grail" style, responsive layout with NO extra CSS, and convert an existing template, reducing the code by 90%, in less than two hours after completing this course"  - Paul
"Very clear and organized explanation about flexbox. It covers all you need to know about the topic. This is one of the few courses that claims to be "complete" and really is! Very well done! Thanks Peter."  - Fabio

2) From my Sass course:

"Great course! Very useful and detailed!"  - Vladislav
"This course provides an excellent in-depth look at how to get up and running using SASS/SCSS. I started with no experience using it and am now quite comfortable using it in all my projects. Highly recommended."  - Jerry
"Really good course. The instructor was very knowledgeable about SASS/SCSS and was able to provide explanations and examples that were relatively easy to follow assuming you have a pretty good understanding of CSS. Would definitely recommend the course to anyone who has a basic understanding of SASS/SCSS and wants to learn even more."  - John

You can assign multiple items on the same grid cell, making them overlap. The grid container doesn't prevent this and you may use this intentionally for your layouts.

This lecture explains how to create overlapping items and how to define their stack order.

Overlapping Grid Items

Nested grids will be crucial in the future. You'll typically use CSS Grid for the overall site layout and then create nested grids inside that for any 2-dimensional layout components like galleries or reviews.

In this lecture, you'll learn how to use nested grids. Fortunately, it's very simple and works as you'd expect.

Nested Grids

Absolutely positioned elements are an old feature of CSS. This lecture shows how to combine it with CSS Grid to highlight a grid area.

CSS Grid and Absolute Positioning I

Grid items can be used as the relative context for absolutely positioned elements as well. This lectures teaches you how.

CSS Grid and Absolute Positioning II
Apply what you learned in this section: a) Using overlapping grid items, b) Building nested grids, c) Combining CSS Grid with absolute positioning
