Responsive Web using Flexbox

Hi there,

I was wondering if Guil's approach to creating base styles for smaller screens and then using Flexbox for tablet and large devices is good practice?

Also, when Guil uses space-between on the main-header, why does the navigation automatically go to the end of the container?

Thanks, James.

I agree, this is a good practice, you dont need to make flexbox in smaller screens because you only want to display the things in one-column, you can make styles fluid and then when the screen is bigger applied flexbox to keep the content organized

Sure, that sounds like a solid approach. And as to space-between, this is my favorite resource, it'll answer your questions: https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/a-guide-to-flexbox/
