Sticky footer: Are we encouraged to solve this ourselves?
I'm not sure I followed this correctly, is this a working fix for the flexbox sticky footer? I feel like I missed an explanation here.
For example, do we put a z-index on the footer to get the affect to work and the use the calc() function to subtract the height of the footer from the viewport height?
Just want to clear up a confusion :)

He goes into solving this with Flexbox in the video at 3 minutes in... it doesn't include any of the older concepts that you might have learned in the CSS Layout course.
Question, why would you use a z-index for a footer with flexbox? I didn't see that in the video.
