Transcript from the "Flexbox and CSS Grid Exercise 2 Setup" Lesson

>> Jen: So this is another you try it where you're gonna be working with something as your own. So I'm gonna get you started here with this and show you how this works. So we spent an entire day working with flexbox as a hack, right? That was that whole grid thing.

[00:00:13] But we did complete one exercise where we used flexbox as we should laying out an image gallery, right? So in this exercise we wanna combine yesterday's flexbox image gallery with the grid layout of today's webpage. So what I've given you here in your begin folder for chapter 17 is two things.

[00:00:31] One is yesterday's flex box gallery exercise, okay? So you've got,

>> Jen: So we built one of these yesterday in flexbox. This is the pie gallery now.

[00:01:23] The rest of the page is laid out using grid, but the these images in the middle are laid out using flexbox, all right? And you'll see here that they change their layout depending on the screen size, okay?
