Suggestion about learning CSS

Hello Guil Hernandez ,I am following your CSS learning and enjoying it a lot.I really like your explanation and its a fun to learn it.But I am also having trouble to be disturbed by the lots of rules and ever changing disciplines of CSS. Sometimes I also some of the techniques easily.What should I do to pace my learning along watching videos?Thanks

The way I do these courses, is to first watch the videos giving full attention. I will then go back and watch them again this time taking notes. Then practice the more you practice the better chance it will stick in your brain. Also keep up with news from Smashing Magazine and CSS-Tricks. I have created a cheat sheet in excel if you would like a copy then let me know and i will email it.

Hey Adam, I don't mean to flood you with requests for that cheat sheet, but if you have the time, do you think you could send me a copy as well? I would really appreciate it.

Sure send me your email

Just got a chance to look at it. Thanks man! Really useful stuff!

No problem.

On the subject of how to best use Treehouse to learn to code here's a blog post on how to get the most out of your treehouse account

Adam Sackfield.If you kindly email me at shuddha_thegame@yahoo.com then it would be great.Thanks for your helpful response.

Sent it now. Hope it helps. Hover over certain properties for full description

That cheat sheet sounds pretty cool Adam can I get a copy too - g@justg.co.uk Would be appreciated


Sure will send it now. Bare in mind its a work in progress.

Graham Davidson May i ask how one becomes a moderator?

Hi Adam, the total honesty is I am not sure lol. I think I just email people at Treehouse too much and post too much junk on here that they got fed up with me and made a moderator lol

Fair enough. I have been making my presence known by answering as many Q's as possible maybe they will notice 1 day :)

Am sure they will Adam - where abouts are you located?

Manchester Uk.

Adam Sackfield - Last month Guil Hernandez from Treehouse made a CSS cheat sheet and posted a link to it here on the forum http://treehouse-cheatsheets.s3.amazonaws.com/css-cheat-sheet.pdf

Thanks James Barnett. I have done it in excel with a contents section hyperlinking to each property, I find it easier to find what i'm looking for faster. Will take anything i'm missing from the link you posted.

As far as what you use for a cheat sheet, a spreadsheet is certainly better than PDF. I'm a big fan of using Workflowy for this, as it's much easier, to search/sort than a spreadsheet.

Thanks again. Will have a look at Workflowy now!

And stuff on workflowy can be shared with a link so you don't have to email a file around.

Hey Adam, i would love a copy of your cheat sheet if possible? Could you please email me at robnewman1983@hotmail.com Thank you


Received it. Amazing cheat sheet. Will be ditching my own and using yours :) Thank you so much for sharing.

No problem. Will be updating it soon

Adam, Been thinking of doing precisely what you're describing. Would really appreciate a copy when you have time. Bchamp1962@gmail.com I like the w3 resources but having something that can be customized would be great! Thanks in advance.


Thanks Adam! Looks great!

Adam, can I get a copy of the css cheat sheet. Email cpickering00@gmail.com thanks
