CSS

Should I skip Flex Box at my low level of knowledge?

I'm doing the web design track, and I'm barely hanging on with the advanced CSS techniques (floating, positioning, etc.). Is it better to wait until I've got a good grasp of those from practicing before I move onto the Flex Box, which is near the end of that web design track?

Thanks

Learning flexbox might make positioning even easier for you, since it will help expand elements to the full width of the flexbox. I would suggest learning it.

Thanks, TJ. Going through the Flex Box tutorials now. It looks really interesting and helpful. At least I'll be able to recognize it if I run across it in the wild. And sooner than later I'll start trying to incorporate it.

Don't get too frustrated, CSS positioning is a pain :P

It is next up on my track too. I have looked at it before elsewhere and couldn't grasp it. I am hoping treehouse can fix that for me
