Useful tip of the day ✨
background and background-color are two CSS properties used for specifying the background of an element but they work differently.
background has more control over the background of the element such that it can add images, positions, e.t.c.
background-color, on the other hand is only for the color of the background.
With background you can add an image and a color but you can only add a color with background-color.
That’s it for this week.
I currently have an Instagram account @deeecode where I share code/tech tips from time to time. Do follow if you’re interested :)
If you’d like to talk about Tech (writing or software engineering) or have questions, you can schedule a meeting with me in my Calendly profile. Looking forward to meeting you.
As a content creator, I love simplifying diverse topics in web development that I understand. Do you have any issues, tools, or frameworks that you’d like to understand better? Do let me know, and I may come up with an article or video on it.
A new week, another opportunity to do amazing things! So go do amazing things 🚀.
Do have a splendid week 🌟
