Before Class: Learn
This week we will get more into Eleventy Templates and look at how they can be chained. With layout chaining you can do things like make a separate template file for your navigation or have templates for different page layouts.
We also learn more about how you can add your own CSS and ways to include images.
On Wednesday we will go into more detail about the midterm and final project and what you will need to do for your midterm presentations.

When following along, make sure that you:
- Commit any changes you have to your files. This means you must save all of your files and then commit changes though Git. Do this before you change branches.
- Change to the 02_03b branch
- git checkout 02_03b
- Create your own version (optional but recommended)
- git checkout -b 02_03test
Here are some ideas that will come up to look out for:
- Data Cascade: how the files and data are processed as eleventy builds the page
- Bootstrap: he does some layout using Bootstrap classes. For now, just follow along. We may go into further detail about how Bootstrap works in general during our classes.
