Practical CSS Grid - Launching My First Course

Late last year, I took the plunge and began to work full time on my passion: education. That has led to today. Today, I officially launched my first online course: Practical CSS Grid!

I’ve been speaking at user groups and creating some blog content about CSS Grid for a couple years now. I figured it would be a good first course. Especially, since have declared it a top thing to learn in 2019!

I’ve structured the course to be how I learn. I like building things that I could use in a site I’m building right away. 

With that in mind, I structured the course to tackle common design patterns in new ways using Grid. 

I also wanted to keep it relatively short. I’m very much into the idea of “micro courses” right now. Practical CSS Grid clocks in at about 2 hours. You won’t learn every single thing about Grid in this course, but you WILL learn what you need to take your CSS and your design to the next level in 2019.

I’ve got a few goals for the course. One is financial. I’d love to sell 100 courses. This would allow me to keep pushing toward more content like this. 

Beyond anything else, though, I want to see CSS Grid adoption on most new sites in 2019. So the more folks learning, the better!

I learned a lot in the past couple months working on this. I plan to share some of that in the near future. But for now, I’ll just feel the pride of shipping something and keep working to educate the world!

Grid vs. Flex: A Tale of a "Simple" Promo Space

I love the new layout modes in CSS. Grid and Flexbox are both amazing features. They each have their place. What if I told you that if you used the "wrong" one, you could double your CSS and HTML? Let's take a look at what appears to be a simple promo grid.

Using Eleventy's JavaScript Data Files

I enjoy building workflows for pure static sites. I enjoy ingesting data into my build process instead of loading my client-side with fetches. In this example, we'll use Eleventy's ability to use a JavaScript file, to execute code to fetch data on site build, negating the need for task runners like Gulp.

The Tech Barrier to Entry

I'm grateful for my unique journey to find my professional niche. It's taken a lot of twists and turns. Is my journey replicable in this era of developer tooling and convenience?
