  • There are a lot of technical details to remember when it comes to learning CSS and Codecademy really covers every aspect of learning CSS from the top to the bottom.

  • I really appreciate the combination of hands-on practice, additional resources, and segmented lessons. The information is accessible and does not intimidate me — as a beginner, this is really important. The interface is delightful, and the tone of the copy is also very friendly and warm. I have been able to meet my weekly goals. Woo!
