A quick question...

I am starting with the website waters and I have started on the adaptive web design section. I am trying to figure it if you are supposed to build your website first with pixels and then convert them to percentages or just start with percentages.

Just try to start with percentages as they make your website fluid without having to convert them.

For learning purposes and to follow with the videos, pixels first. But once you've learned about it afterwards and you're doing it on your own, percentages instead of pixels for the responsive stuff.

The videos progress as if you've started with pixels in the Build a Simple Website section. I'd do that first.

Ok, so when I'm building a new website from scratch I should start by making the website with Pixels then convert everything?

Ok, thanks guys!

Just take your time and be patient. You'll be taught everything so you know it but obviously, once you do know it all, you can skip things.
