If you’re brand new to programming, this is a great starting point for learning the basics, especially since it's free. After getting up to speed with the basics, you should consider moving to another more robust solution grounded in real world application.

This learning path starts with the basics and covers the essentials of designing and coding websites through a series of guided projects. After completing this path, you’ll understand various aspects of web page styling, including modern techniques like variables and pseudo-classes. You'll get lots of practice making web designs responsive and accessible.
Many of the challenges are actually quite simple to game or guess at, because the reading gives away too many clues. We would prefer to see more difficult challenges built into the curriculum in order to help students build skills along the way. You may want to take on some additional challenges at Frontend Mentor, CodePen, or 100 Days of CSS to practice the concepts as you’re learning them.
Some of the projects aren't quite real world. So if you're looking to launch a career as a frontend web developer, make sure you continue with some independent projects that follow a real-world scenario.
