The CSS Grid Layout introduces a two-dimensional grid system allowing both fixed and flexible track sizes to be defined. This allows for easy management of an app's layout.

You'll start with an empty HTML file with minimal global styles applied in your CSS file. You will then iteratively add sections and items to your HTML page to structure through a CSS grid. You'll learn how to control a grid's columns and rows and define the size of each respectively.

By the end of the course, you'll have a fully responsive landing page that behaves how you expect it to on any device.
