  1. Wow thanks a bunch, it really helped me to structure my CSS knowledge! I first tried to build the site on my own, got frustrated at certain points, and eventually it turned out to look ok but the code was messy.. But then I followed along with the tutorial, and the result came out so neat that now I’m super satisfied and motivated to keep learning. Grateful for the guidance and all the useful tips! Thanks for sharing the expertise

  2. Can I make a restaurant website with only css and html to actually use for a restaurant? It’s a very simple website that’ll just display info and link to a online ordering site. Will the website run into problems if I only use html and css? And also, is php needed?

  4. Where is the prototypes/mockups link?
    BTW I learnt more new professional concepts from here, Which I really needed.

  5. Can someone tell me why at 2:03:00 he is not using Display Flex property on the container? What is the difference giving it that way and the way he did(using modifier class)?

  6. I have problems with making my font responsive in mobile mode. They're not consistent and also get really complicated to resize every element inside our page.
