Course Overview Hello, my name is Paul Cheney, let me tell you about this series of hands-on responsive design courses. At the heart of developing any responsive website is a thorough knowledge of how use HTML 5, CSS3, and Sass. In Responsive Web Design 3: Columns, Flexbox, and Grids, you will learn the skills you need to lay out pages using a grid with traditional floats and divisions. You will automate this process by leveraging the power of Sass operators. This approach works on all modern and older browsers. In addition, we will explore the new flexbox, which is great for laying out items both horizontally and vertically. We'll then move onto my favorite, CSS grids, which is more for overall page layout. You will learn how simple it is to build any responsive layout using named areas. You will build a mobile music player interface, which includes everything we've covered in this course. As we're moving though the course we'll also learn about image sprites, fonts for icons, clipping paths for images, and wrapping text. When you're finished with this course you will have built several functioning examples, which you can use in your next client project. Please join me as we explore flexbox, grids, icons, and paths in this third of four hands-on responsive design courses from Pluralsight.
