When new CSS features collide: possibility and complexity at the intersections

We finally got a proper layout system for the web, and each browser release seems to bring with it another new feature that promises more creative, performant, or intuitive CSS. Each new feature is exciting on its own, but where it gets really interesting is when we combine these things.

In this talk I'll walk you through a recent history of CSS layout, demonstrating how thinking has evolved, and new features have become possible because of earlier decisions. You’ll discover the possibilities, and the complexity that lies at the intersections. Leave this talk with a deeper understanding of how CSS layout works, the inspiration to try combining different features, and a little peek at what might be around the corner.

Don't miss your chance to see Rachel Andrew and many other inspiring speakers at Summit.

Tickets start at $1295.
