The video tutorial about CSS position by Chris Coyier from Css-Tricks. This tutorial will show you the overview of CSS position values, if you’re new to CSS or want to learn more about this topic I think this video is right for you.
This is a quick beginner-level overview of the different CSS position values. In a nutshell: relative allows you to “nudge” and leaves the element’s original position in the page flow.

All of them set a new positioning context and allow z-index to work.
