Does this CSS Layout Techniques course come with a workspace?
I want to work side-by-side with Guil but there seems to be no workspace option. I'm currently watching the second video.
You can always create a workspace that you can use with any course. You just need to open and create the workspace first, and then leave it open, while you go back and open the course, and then copy/type in to the open workspace. (It might be cumbersome to have to type everything in, but consider it good practice--after all, you're going to be doing a lot of coding down the road, once you've completed training and started working.) Another option would be to use codepen.io, and set up a pen/ workspace there. A third option would be to find a code editor of your own, like several that have been suggested/recommended in other forum discussions here. Since I'm not at home now, and not using my own machine, I'm currently limited to the first two options I've mentioned above, but when I am home, I use Komodo Edit, which is free and open-source, (though they will try to sell you their Komodo IDE version, which you have to pay for) or I also have access to an older version of Dreamweaver, though I haven't been using that for awhile. (I can't afford to use the cloud version at this point.) Ultimately, the choice of where to practice and/or work alongside an instructor for a class that doesn't have a workspace(s) set up, is up to you.
