Today I'm at SmartWeb in Bucharest and we have already had some real world CSS Tricks from Vitaly Friedman of Smashing Magazine and some interesting but practical things that can be done using CSS for decoration from Razvan Caliman.
I'm up after lunch with a talk about layout, one of my new demos for this talk is linked up in the email this week, with a post to explain some of the details.
Last week I spoke at View Source and you can find my slides, all the CodePen examples and some useful resources here.
For the longest time Gmail has not supported media queries, making responsive emails very difficult to do. Later this month however that will change making it possible to use CSS Media Queries in email. Given the number of people using Gmail, this is excellent news.
I've hoped to see a return of activity around the CSS Regions specification. Jen Simmons agrees and has come up with a suggestion for a somewhat simplified version that relies on Grid Layout. It also includes a way of enabling styling of grid tracks, cells and areas.
If you aren't familiar with what Regions can do I have a video here.
There has been an issue raised against Level 2 of Grid for the potential of pseudo-elements for grid styling.
