>Visual Studio Code provides basic support for HTML programming out of the box. There is syntax highlighting, smart completions with IntelliSense, and customizable formatting.

The thing is, once you practice Grid for a few hours, implementing these blog tips and others, it's only a matter of time before the fractional designations, as well as the custom property values, become second nature. Your homework: Practice using these Grid techniques, at least 20 minutes a day, for 5 days straight. Check out [CodePen](https://www.codepen.io/). Create an account there, and then start your merry journey with CSS Grid. You'll be amazed at how simple any CSS tools, including Grid, can become just by using them for only 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Bored? Practice your grids!
