Looking for help to learn

I would like to start off by saying that I am mainly an artist hoping to eventually be able to do work on my own. I am hoping the either end up making websites or games. That being said, coding has proven difficult for me to learn by myself so, I am wondering if there is anyone out there who would be willing to help me along the way?

Have you started FreeCodeCamp? How far along have you gotten? What are some of the problems you’re encountering?


:root {

–red-color: blue, red;


.red-box {

background: var(–red-color);

height: 200px;




<div class=“red-box”></div>

this is the problem im on. It seems the declarations are typed a bit differently and im not sure where im supposed to put the fall back declaration.
