MakerSquare mentor and CSS superstar, Elyse Holloday held an intro to CSS session in the afternoon on Sunday.

About two-thirds of the class came out for it and it was well worth the time.

Elyse taught us a few sweet tricks I hadn’t tried – like adding box borders instead of backgrounds when checking for correct flow, and she showed us the box-sizing CSS property for setting the total width / height of a box, instead of setting height, width, padding, etc individually and winding up with funky sizing and confusing calculations.

I also continued to work on my unfinished assignments from earlier in the course. This continued to go well and was a major confidence boost.

Plus!!!! Elyse knew my shoes (pictured on me below) were Jeffery Campbell Litas. And she wears Black Milk leggings. Yes! Cue instant girl crush.

All in all, I worked at MakerSquare for about 8 or 9 hours on Sunday. Went home and worked some more. The weekend’s work paid off; by Monday I finally felt on par with the rest of the class.  I was excited for the week ahead instead of intimidated, which made for great motivation.
