Why this course rocks

Once you've learned CSS Flexbox, you'll wonder how you ever managed to build websites without it. It gives you all the tools you needed in order to properly arrange content inside flexible containers.

Given that all websites need to be flexible and responsive these days, Flexbox is a must-have skill for web developers.

Course content

This course is focused on getting you up to speed as quickly as possible. Even if you only watch the first lectures, you'll be able to take advantage of your new skills in your next project.

I'll give you several exercises throughout the course, so that you'll be able to get your hands dirty as well. We'll use a navbar as an example layout, as that's a very typical use case for Flexbox.

In the bonus screencasts, we'll tie everything together and build two real-world examples: an awesome image grid and a fully responsive navbar. You can follow the course creator Per Harald Borgen on Twitter here.

F to the A oracle to the Q
When should I use Flexbox?

Flexbox has many uses, including scaling, vertically and horizontally aligning, re-ordering elements within a container, or changing the direction of a column or a row.

Will Flexbox help me with responsiveness?

Absolutely! If you wish to learn how to make fully responsive sites, Flexbox is one aspect you should learn about.

Is Flexbox better than Bootstrap?

Flexbox is simpler and more responsive than Bootstrap. In our book, that's a win for Team Flexbox!

Should I use CSS Grid or Flexbox?

Flexbox is best for one-dimensional layouts and Grid is best for two-dimensional layouts. If you’re laying out items in one direction (for example three buttons inside a header), then you should use Flexbox. This will give you more flexibility than CSS Grid, be easier to maintain, and require less code. However, if you’re going to create an entire layout in two dimensions — with both rows and columns — then it's time for CSS Grid.
