Introduction to Web development - CSS

About this event

CSS, which stands for Cascading Style Sheets, is a fundamental component of web development. It is a styling language that is used to define the look and feel of a web page, including the layout, fonts, colors, and other visual aspects.

CSS works by creating a set of rules or styles that are applied to HTML elements to change their appearance. For example, you can use CSS to change the font family and size of a paragraph, set the background color of a header, or add a border to an image.

One of the key benefits of CSS is its ability to separate the presentation of a web page from its content. This means that you can make changes to the styling of a page without affecting the underlying HTML structure. For example, you can change the font size of all paragraphs in your site with just one line of CSS code, instead of having to manually edit each HTML element.

CSS is also designed to be modular, which means you can create separate style sheets for different parts of your website or even individual pages. This makes it easier to manage and maintain your website's styling, especially as your site grows and becomes more complex.

To use CSS in your web development projects, you will need to include a link to your CSS file in the head section of your HTML document. You can then define your styles using CSS selectors, which target specific HTML elements based on their tag, class, or ID.

In summary, CSS is a powerful and essential tool for web development that allows you to create beautiful and responsive websites. By separating the presentation of a web page from its content, CSS makes it easier to manage and maintain the styling of your site, and enables you to create visually stunning designs that enhance the user experience.
