Today I learned about CSS!  Now, I know this isn’t exactly a big deal to some of you, but having dabbled in web stuff for a few years now, I’ve always seen references to CSS but have never been able to actually learn what it is or how it works or anything like that.  So when my boss at the DSL asked me today if I was interested in learning about CSS, I leaped at the chance!

So, he showed me this tutorial online that teaches you about different aspects of CSS, i.e. how/why it’s used and specific pieces of code.  If you were wondering, CSS is basically a tool that allows you to create one set of rules for a whole series of webpages, so no matter where you go on a website, it looks the same.  Also, it separates the code from the content, so it’s easier to edit one or the other without dealing with a lot of crowding.  So I studied the tutorial for about an hour, and then went to work organizing the code he gave me.

I know what you’re thinking – loads of fun (ha!)

But it was!  I know, I’m a total dork.  But I like learning new things that I could possibly actually apply in the future!  Or now.  You know, whenever.

So that’s my exciting/jump-up-and-down news for the day…
