CSS Foundation vs CSS Foundation Second Edition

Is there a reason why there are two CSS Foundations? Which one would you guys recommend going through both or just one. And if just one, which one?

Because tech never stays the same! The 2nd edition isn't finished yet entirely, so I'd do the first edition. Then you can revisit the 2nd edition later to refresh concepts and learn a few new things as well.

u guys are smart

There's nothing wrong with going through the first edition. The second edition includes a lot of helpful information and some of it overlaps with the first edition. As Sam said, some of the content in the second edition is "newer" content -- improvements and additions to CSS3 that are beginning to be more supported by popular browsers like Chrome and Safari. I completely agree with the suggestion that you go through both versions and start diving into the foundations of CSS.

My advice would be to start with Nick's CSS course and then go through Guil's. Hopefully you find both courses fascinating, and hopefully you take a look at the CSS3 course as well!

+1 on J.T.'s advice on the course order.

To recap:

  1. CSS Foundations course by Nick
  2. CSS Foundations - 2nd Edition course by Guil
  3. CSS3 course
