Issue 248


I've been working away on a complete rewrite and re-record of my popular CSS Layout courses. Since launching over 3 years ago I had made small updates to the material, but I felt it was time to give it a real go over. At the same time moving the courses over to a new platform on Teachable. Also, all of the videos will have captions, something I am really happy to be providing this time round.

I'm in a prelaunch mode in that two of the courses (Grid and Browser Compat) are now live, the rest I will be getting ready over the next few weeks. If you want to get all the lessons as soon as they are available, sign up for the full course here, and use the code EARLYBIRD for a discount as thanks for coming on board early!

The gap properties for flexbox are now in Chrome Canary

Test it out ...hopefully it won't be too long before they are in Chrome proper.
