I’m doing a refresher on the Responsive Web Design course.
Just finished the first certification project and it appears only HTML is being evaluated. There are no specific stories for CSS styling.
The same seems to be happening in the other certification projects, it seems you can just complete the HTML tasks / stories for the project and disregard CSS when submitting.
Am I missing something?
I think CSS would be very difficult to evaluate without becoming to restricting.
Personally I used CSS on all my projects and loved the creative freedom I had.
The projects are where I learnt the most, I could have done the bare minimum, however I felt doing so would be robbing myself of a learning opertunity
So for me the projects became something I was passionate about.
My chance to apply the things I’d been learning, to test myself and to really shine
Having said that, my first cert project was magenta
(It still makes me smile to see it )
I you go into each project with the mindset of making it better than your last, you will find your able to do things you’d never imagined you’d be able to do.
(this was my landing page project, bay12games.com have had the same website for the past 20 years, I wanted to use the new graphic version of their game as inspiration for the project)
When you work on a project, use it as an opportunity to create something you feel passionate about.
Yes, its not going to be perfect on your first try, it may be a bit broken in places, and you might have to make sacrifices and cut back your scope.
But thats apart of the learning experience.
Your not just learning to code, your learning to be a programmer
Some of the projects do require some CSS to be entered to pass the project. I know that @media is required in some of the projects, and using flex box, along with some other CSS for presentation.
Getting the navigation bar at to the top is a question, I often see on here. It comes to using CSS to resolve the issue.
So, I think that certain parts are required and evaluated based on the course project.
Just my experience with Responsive Web Design.
