Once you've downloaded VS code and understand how to navigate the code editor, it's time to start coding! Copy paste the code below to your VS Code and save it as demo.html (or name the file whatever you like but ends with .html) on your Desktop. Double click the file or drag the file to the browser.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>My first website</title>

Day 5: CSS Grid Design Challenge

Text Video:

Note: If you've spent too much time picking color and adjusting pixels, please stop πŸ›‘! As long as you understand the general concepts and how to create a simple grid or flex layout, it's good enough! Don't worry about being pixel perfect!

If you don't understand everything, that's okay! CSS really takes time to master!

Let's try something cool! Here is a HARD CSS Grid challenge for you πŸ‘‡ πŸ‘‡ (Inspired by this amazing website)!
