I am still trekking around the world with what my husband refers to as my "Little Boxes Roadshow". A few days ago I closed Web Summer Camp in Rovinj with a keynote talk entitled "Knowing it all". Thinking about how there seems to be a never-ending stream of stuff we need to learn, how do we deal with that? The slides are here.
Yesterday I gave a fairly technical layout talk at the Google Developer Experts Summit in Krakow. Slides and resources for that talk are here. Next stop for me is NordicJS, where I'll be giving a new layout talk on Friday this week. It's all go! Say hello if you see me, I usually look like I'm on a mission but can be diverted by friendly chatter!
Thanks once again to An Event Apart for sponsoring this week! Check out their ad in the footer for a discount code, I'd love to see you at an upcoming An Event Apart.

Discussion on how best to implement a "wrapper" or container for your content. I realise I mostly just do what I've always done, so it is interesting to think about the options.
From Jen Simmons, a quick rundown of how to try CSS Grid if you haven't done so before.
A fun tutorial which covers another use for CSS Custom Properties.
Useful if, like me, you end up testing shiny new things in the latest builds of browsers.
A nice experiment by Jules Forrest based on replicating a print layout.
That’s what Julie Ovenell, Communications Director at the University of British Columbia, told us about An Event Apart, our 3-day design and front-end conference. “I learned more from this conference than any I’ve attended in the past,” added Tracey Halvorsen, President of Faststop.
Courtney Demone, Design & Marketing Lead for SearchTempest Online, agreed: “Of all the conferences I've been to, AEA consistently has the best speakers and the best overall atmosphere.” But maybe Peter Burgess, Creative Director at ShapeUp, said it best: “I learned more from this conference than any I’ve attended in the past.”
