The CSS Layout Masterclass

A presentation at Smashing Online Workshops by Rachel Andrew

We’ve been learning CSS and CSS for Layout in the same way since we broke free of table-based layouts in 2001, however CSS has grown-up and over the last few years a proper and consistent system for layout has emerged.

In this all-new workshop Rachel Andrew will take you through this new system for layout, giving you the ability to properly understand and use CSS Layout with real understanding of why things behave as they do.

We can understand CSS layout as a system, and rather than poke around using trial and error to do layout, learn the rules that control this system saving a lot of time and enabling more elegant and performant layouts.

This understanding will make choices such as “should I use grid or flexbox” or, “what do I do about old browsers” much easier, in fact sometimes the answer will be so obvious, you’ll not need to ask those questions!
