The Dark Side of the Grid

A presentation at Stahlstadt.js Meetup #21 in in Linz, Austria by Manuel Matuzovic

The CSS Grid Layout specification is one of the most exciting additions to CSS in the last few years. It comes with a variety of new properties, units, functions and related specs, but it also entails new dangers. In this talk Manuel gives a quick introduction to CSS Grid Layout and confronts said dangers by explaining what’s problematic about them and providing alternative solutions. You’ll learn what you need to watch out for when working with grids, why source order matters, how to work with legacy browsers and about the ups and downs of recent display values.
