[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, everyone. 0:04 I'm Guil. 0:05 In this course, we're gonna go beyond the basic selector concepts, 0:06 covered in CSS Basics. 0:09 Back in CSS Basics, we learned base selectors like type, ID, class, and 0:11 descendant selectors. 0:16 Now, we're gonna tap into a whole new batch of selectors, selectors that will 0:17 open up a world of flexibility, for us designers and developers. 0:21 So, we know that selectors are the most important and powerful part of CSS, 0:25 because they are what allows us to target HTML elements, and apply style to them. 0:30 But besides the common ways we learn to target elements with type, ID, and 0:34 class selectors, we're also able to zero in, and 0:39 target elements, based on specific HTML attributes, 0:41 their position in the HTML document, even their relation to other elements and more. 0:45 So, coming up in this course, we'll expand on those core concepts, 0:50 by learning all about attribute selectors, child selectors, selector combinators, and 0:54 lots of new helpful pseudo-classes. 0:58 We'll also see how more advanced selectors, 1:01 can use simple expressions, to target a combination of elements. 1:03 We'll even use special selectors called pseudo-elements, 1:07 to insert virtual elements and content, into our page, from our CSS. 1:10 By the end of this course, you'll have gained a better understanding of 1:15 the power and flexibility, behind CSS selectors, and 1:18 you'll have a few more handy tools in your CSS tool kit, to work with. 1:22 Again, don't worry about memorizing every selector we're about to cover. 1:25 But as I've mentioned before, to be the best and most well-rounded designer and 1:29 developer we can be, it's best to know all our options, and 1:33 understand all the selectors available to us. 1:36 So, make sure you also take a look at the teacher's notes for each video. 1:39 Because they'll provide extra information, and resources, about each selector. 1:42 So, are you ready? 1:47 Let's get to it. 1:48
