Did you know Treehouse courses come with coding adventures? Coding adventures let you practice your skills in an interesting way with an easy-to-show-off output!

If you already have a Treehouse account, you can access the coding adventure here and get started!

If you don’t already have an account, check out a sneak peek of the coding challenge here:


How to Complete This Code Adventure! 🚀

You’ve been tasked to create a card component for a travel website. The designer for the company already created some mockups for you. Your challenge is to recreate the provided designs using HTML & CSS.

The Challenge

The provided mockups are for mobile (375px) and desktop (1440px) sized screens. You’ll want to be coding this project using the mobile-first approach so you’ll want to start creating the mobile layout and using media queries to make the styling behave differently when the screen size gets at a certain point.

  • Mobile First
  • Flexbox
  • Pseudo Elements

Extra Credits 🔥

There are a lot of different ways to accomplish this task. You can use any of the technologies you’ve used up to this point, I’d suggest using this challenge to solidify what you’ve learned or maybe improve on some topics you’re not completely comfortable with. Here are some examples of what you could add:

  • Use Sass
  • Add the content Dynamic using JavaScript
  • Add some animations or transitions for example on hover for the “Read More”-link
  • Create a grid with multiple cards
  • Use BEM

The possibilities are endless 😎 Don’t forget to share your end result to Twitter with @treehouse so we can learn from each other’s solutions!

Looking forward to seeing what you’ll make of this!
