CSS Grid Layout - A "Quick" Overview

A quick warning and request

One of my friend told me that he learned a lot from the video even though it was a bit long - 25mn is kinda long. If you speed it up to 1.5x it is still watchable but at 2x I start to sound like a total chipmunk and you might find it entertaining.

I hope you enjoy it and learn something from it if CSS Grid is new to you. I really miss working on the User Interface side, let me know in the comments if you would like to see more posts around UI

The starter coded is added inline or you can copy it from here: Grid starter code

And the template used can be downloaded here: Elton UI Kit
