Issue 267

I am writing this while waiting to present at the online SmashingConf Freiburg. Sad not to actually be in Freiburg with the team, but we have been having a fun couple of days anyway. You can find my slides here.

I also have my CSS Layout Masterclass scheduled for the end of the week, there are a few tickets left. I'm not sure when I'll next be doing one of these so if you fancy spending a couple of sessions getting to grips with layout with me, take a look here.

An Event Apart are my sponsor this week, they have an amazing line-up of speakers for their Fall Summit, online in October. The footer of this email contains more information and a discount code.
