Hello from a snowy Denver, where yesterday I spoke at An Event Apart with the last presentation of my talk Making Things Better. I'll be at An Event Apart San Francisco in December with a shiny new one-hour long talk. Making Things Better was recorded earlier in the year, so at some point that video should be released in the An Event Apart archive.
A wide variety of things this week, including a couple of videos if you too are stuck indoors with winter weather! Thank you to sponsor OddBird this week for helping to support this newsletter!

The video of my talk from NordicJS, a somewhat shortened version of Refactoring (the way we talk about) CSS, is live. I added it to the Notist page for that talk so all the slides, resources and code are alongside it.

A post that explains some key terms and concepts for designing layouts.
