Last week I spoke at Frontend Conf Zurich and the video is already available, you'll find it along with my resources and code on this page.
I am a huge fan of the work Heydon Pickering does in explaining inclusive design through practical examples, and I've learned a lot from them. So I'm very happy to give a shoutout to Inclusive Components: The Book which is going to become a very useful reference for me.
A research-based piece on using carousels on Mobile Devices. Information dense, but a lot of handy stuff in here.
Video from the Browser Contributor Day event. It's long, but there is lots in there if you are interested in the process of things getting into browsers.

With new lessons and updates for 2018, I've distilled my knowledge about CSS Layout into this training course. This course has something for you if you are new to CSS, have been using frameworks for a while and want to understand how they work, or have been doing this for a while but want to understand the newer layout methods. The course includes video tutorials, text explanations and all the starting points to follow along.
The full table of contents gives an overview of what you can learn - at your own pace. We also have a Slack community where you can ask questions about the course materials.
