Escape the box with Houdini

Ruth John Creative Developer

CSS is a powerful technology for styling web content, with one significant drawback (no not specificity). We're restricted to the styling primitives built into the language (and browser), which relies on others to specify and implement them, and can take years.

Well, until now. Enter Houdini.

Houdini is a set of lower level APIs that allow us to essentially create our own visual style, layout, and animation properties for CSS. Sounds like magic? That's why it's called Houdini.

In this presentation creative developer Ruth John will show us how the illusion is created.
