Will that video in the teachers notes come up in a later tutorial?

I want to watch that video, but not right now. Should I save the URL or will we eventually get to it. I am referring to the video at the bottom of teachers notes title "using color in css" and when you click it, it takes you to a track "how to make a website."

That course was the first course I studied on treehouse. It's by Nick Pettit and it is a very long course, that involves a lot of information. You should finish the css basics course first as this will side track you off of it as it is not relative to it in the slightest in my opinion.

The course is more about the approach to make a website, such as wire framing a design. Then the teacher shows you how to approach coding that design and then styling in overview.

He has a good section on color though, so if you can browse your way to the color stage then you can do so but I would avoid starting that course and finishing it while maintaining the one you are currently on.
