I'm mid conference travels having come from CSSConf Budapest, and I'm writing this intro sat in day two of An Event Apart in Boston.
As I headed out to Budapest I got the news that I had been invited onto the CSS Working Group as an Invited Expert. I hope that I can continue to contribute to CSS, and bring my experience as a web developer and the things I learn when talking to Perch customers and developers at conferences, to the discussions.
Last week the CSS Working Group voted to move all spec issues and discussion to GitHub. I think this is a fantastic move. In this post I talk about how new CSS gets into browsers, the change from vendor prefixes to browser flags and why it is important that we as web developers and designers contribute to open web standards.
Yesterday I presented on CSS Grid Layout at An Event Apart in Boston. The slides were updated to include the new subgrid proposal - and all of the code examples on CodePen are linked up so you can play around with them.
There is a Storify here with tweets from all of the layout fun at An Event Apart.
