The CSS Grid module makes it easier than ever to create website layouts. It simplifies both your HTML and CSS, while simultaneously giving you more control over your layout. You can use it without any framework, as the CSS Grid module is native to the browser.
So if you want to stay up-to-date as a front end developer, you'll need to learn how to use CSS Grid! Luckily though, it's not hard. And this course teaches you all you need to know. For free, of course.
This course contains three sections. The first two will teach you the core concepts you need to know to get started. Together, we’ll build both a website layout and a super cool image grid.
In the bonus section, you’ll learn how to create article layouts with CSS Grid plus some more advanced concepts.
What you’ll learn
You'll be proficient with the following parts of CSS Grid when you complete the course:
And remember, this isn't a regular video course, it's a Scrimba course! Which means you can interact with the code inside the tutorials whenever you want. This makes learning a lot more fun!

Flexbox is made for one-dimensional layout and Grid is made for two-dimensional layouts. This means that if you’re laying out items in one direction (for example three buttons inside a header), then you should use Flexbox. It’ll give you more flexibility than CSS Grid. It’ll also 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 you should use CSS Grid. Depending on your use-case, one might be more preferable than the other.
