A project to develop and demonstrate skills in CSS, Git, and browser Developer Tools by duplicating a popular website (google.com).

Demonstrated Skills

This project is a result of my study of The Odin Project. In this project, I will demonstrate the following skills:

  • Writing my own readme file
  • Version control in Git, using the linux command line.
  • Refine skills in CSS, with an emphasis on layout and best practices.
  • Use the Developer Tool in Chrome to troubleshoot design elements.
  • Familiarity with HTML5.
  • Modest responsive web design.

Getting Started

You can view the website live at:

https://kristalmdow.github.io/google-homepage

Or click here. The website should be viewable in any modern browser.

Alternatively, after you have cloned from Github via your favored method, open index.html in your favorite browser to view the page.

If you are new to the technologies listed below, you can familiarize yourself with them through The Odin Project like I have, or click the links below for each technology.
