[Kevin Powell] Beyond CSS

Kevin Powell – Beyond CSS [FCO]



A course to help you learn how to wrangle your stylesheets, keeping them organized and scalable no matter the size of the project or how big your team is.

Beyond CSS is a course designed to help you use modern CSS and tools like Sass and PostCSS to manage stylesheets more effectively. A course that will help you learn how to organize and scale your style sheets, no matter the size of the project or the number of team members.



When we first start writing CSS, it’s pretty easy.

Change a background color here, change a font there.

As you improve, you might start building out individual components or small layouts from designs you find online, and things go pretty well.

You understand the basics of flexbox, grid, and positioning and you are feeling pretty confident.

You can create layouts and get the job done…

But as projects grow in size, things become a bit of a mess.

Every aspect of a project becomes harder to manage the larger the project is. And as more team members enter the picture, the difficulties raise exponentially.

Some things are easier to manage than others, and CSS is one of those things that is very easy for it to explode into a complex, unorganized, mess. And when you’re working in a team with varying degrees of comfort in writing CSS, thing can become a nightmare.

And that’s why there are so many 3rd party libraries and frameworks out there, as well as a bunch of different naming conventions.

Those all exist because writing CSS that can scale is hard, and it’s made harder by the ever growing list of technologies we can use to build our sites as well.


There is a better way

As CSS continues to grow as a language, things like custom properties and cascade layers are here to help us wrangle our CSS like we never could do before.

There are also other tools that have become industry standards such as Sass, PostCSS, and more that can help as well.

And in this course, I want to teach you how you can leverage modern CSS, and some of those other tools to create well-organized, and easy-to-scale projects that actually leave you and your team writing less CSS.

This is an advanced course that assumes you are comfortable writing CSS, but struggle with organization and scaling projects.



Hi, my name is Kevin

I started making websites back in the late 90s when I made a homepage for a Star Wars RPG that I helped run.

Even back then, my favorite part of making sites was figuring out how to make the site look like the planned design. Granted, how we had to make designs a reality was very different back then. Luckily things have changed a lot over the years, and we have much better solutions today!

CSS has changed a lot since then, but despite how much it has matured as a language, it would seem like the one thing that is always a struggle is figuring out the best way to write it at scale…
