A well-designed CSS style guide offers more than just consistent patterns; it ensures web accessibility, better site performance, improved engineering and design efficiency, and provides your users with a uniform experience across your entire application or suite of applications. In this course, you’ll learn how to build a CSS style guide from scratch. You'll explore each of the user interface (UI) components that go into the most effective style guides; you'll examine the benefits of maintaining a “living” style guide (i.e., provides flexibility, responds to an application's changing needs, etc.); and you'll learn about the analysis and linting tools that measure your CSS and assist with style guide maintenance. Participants should understand the fundamentals of HTML and CSS.
