Learning CSS in 2020

A presentation at Arts University Bournemouth Talk in in Bournemouth, UK by Rachel Andrew

Rachel Andrew has been writing CSS for over 20 years, and teaching people the things she has learned for almost as long. Since the early days of CSS, and certainly since “CSS for Layout” became a thing, we’ve been teaching CSS in pretty much the same way. Here is a block thing, here is an inline thing, this is the Box Model … and here is this weird jumping through hoops that makes a layout. It’s time for a change.

In this talk Rachel will set out how we should be learning CSS in 2020. Explaining how many resources stll reference the quirks and hacks of the past, and how to build for yourself a plan to learn CSS as it is today rather than how it was yesterday.


The following code examples from the presentation can be tried out live.
