Con Limited programming courses
Con Not a good starting place for a complete beginner
CSS-Tricks does not follow the structure of a traditional tutorial, starting at the basics and gradually increasing in difficulty.
Instead, each blog post addresses a specific topic (such as responsive images, debugging keyframe animations etc.). Therefore it's better suited to someone who has already been introduced to CSS and is looking for more info on a specific topic, or wants to discover new concepts.
