CSS Foundations or CSS Foundations - Second Edition?

I just started Treehouse a few days ago. I just finished the HTML deep dive, so my question is - would it be better for me to do CSS Foundations or the CSS Foundations - Second Edition?

I can't tell the difference, and I'm wondering what it is. Also the fact CSS Foundations - Second Edition looks incomplete makes me even more curious to not do that for right now.

I would appreciate any suggestion for which to do or information on what the difference is.

Hi Tyler,

A lot has changed since we produced CSS Foundations – the quality of our videos are much better, and many new CSS features have been added that need to be covered.

CSS foundations is still very useful for learning CSS fundamentals, so I suggest that you do both. CSS Foundations - Second Edition is an updated series that will eventually replace CSS Foundations entirely once it's finished.

I would say do CSS Foundations first, then the Second Edition.

I won't do any harm covering similar stuff in 2nd Ed and least you get the full Foundations from the 1st Ed. :-)

I concur with @Caroline's suggestion, start with the CSS Foundations course.

CSS Foundation 2nd edition, is the next generation course. It's currently in progress and should be finished up by the end of the year at that point the original CSS Foundations course will go away.

Then do the 2nd edition badges as they come out, there is some new content in there.

Excellent. Thank you everyone.
