Making CSS from Good to Great: The Power of Subgrid

A presentation at DevFest 2019 Kuala Lumpur in in Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Chen Hui Jing

Grid has lived up to the hype and since its release in 2017, it has been increasingly used in production, from personal sites to big name organizations like the New York Times, Sony and slate.com. Even though Grid allowed us to do many things with an ease that was not possible before, there is still room for improvement. Cue Subgrid. This feature allows nested grids to participate in the sizing of their parent grids, solving a major pain point developers faced with just Grid alone. This talk will explain how subgrid works and the use-cases it solves.
