  • google plus

In Brief...

Setting up for Advanced CSS is easy.

Instructions

Operating System Requirements

You can use any modern operating system in this class.

To set up your computer for CSS training, all you need are:

  1. Visual Studio Code (Download, Install, and Set up )
    • While you may use a different editor or IDE, Visual Studio Code is an excellent IDE to learn to code on. It provides a nice balance of power and simplicity and it is available on Windows and Mac.
  2. A Web browser (The latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari)
  3. The Advanced CSS Class Files
    1. Download the class files.
    2. After downloading the class files, create a directory on your hard drive named "Webucator" that can be found easily.
      1. On Windows it is recommended the new folder have a path of C:\Webucator.
      2. On Mac OS X a good location for the new folder would be within a Webucator folder in your Documents directory.
    3. Extract the files to the folder you just created.
  4. Sass - the CSS scripting language and compiler.
    1. Sass requires the Ruby scripting language to be installed:
      1. Mac users already have Ruby installed.
      2. PC users should download and install Ruby Installer https://rubyinstaller.org/.
    2. Once Ruby is installed, open a command prompt ("Terminal" on a Mac; "Start" > "cmd" on Windows) and type "gem install sass."
      1. Mac users may have to run the command as an administrator; if you get an error, instead type "sudo gem install sass."
