w3schools CSS tutorial

w3schools is a resource aimed at web developers that covers just about every CSS concept or element one might come across. Most concepts include brief explanations and demos.

Stack Overflow

Stack Overflow is a question-and-answer platform that allows programmers to ask questions, which other programmers then answer. It is used regularly by programmers of every experience level, so it can be intimidating at first, but it can be invaluable when you run into problems or get stuck.

Anybody can ask questions on Stack Overflow, but for beginners, it's most useful as a record of questions others have already asked. Almost any problem you experience or concept you find confusing early on has already had a question asked about it. If you have trouble with anything, after all, you can rest assured that you are not the only one.
