Rachel’s upcoming schedule

Rachel Andrew is presenting at these upcoming events.

Toronto, ON, Canada

Smashing Conference

Next Steps With CSS Layout Workshop

In this workshop you’ll explore the new features available for CSS Layout. Learn the emerging best practices for using Grid and Flexbox. Discover how to support browsers without support, and ensure that our new powers don’t lead to us causing accessibility problems.

I’ll also be taking a look at how the web is moving away from physical dimensions – mapping layout to the top, right, bottom and left of the physical screen – to using logical properties and values. By the end of the day you will have a better understanding of how layout works, and have plenty of code examples and resources to use as a reference as you start to implement these techniques in your work.

Making Things Better: Redefining the Technical Possibilities of CSS

For years we’ve explained that the web is not like print; that a particular idea is not how things work on the web; that certain things are simply not possible. Over the last few years, rapid browser implementation of advances in CSS have given us the ability to do many of these previously impossible things. We can use our new powers to build the same designs faster, or we can start to ask ourselves what we might do if we were solving these problems afresh.

In this talk, Rachel will look at the things coming into browsers right now which change the way we see web design. CSS subgrids allowing nested grids to use the track definition of their parent; logical properties and values moving the web away from the physical dimensions of a computer screen; screen experiences which behave more like an app, or even paged media, due to scroll snapping and multidimensional control. By understanding the new medium of web design we can start to imagine the future, and even help to shape it.
