Issue 270

Animation and accessibility feature heavily this week, partly because I've been working on writing some stuff about CSS animation. It's great to see such a lot of great a11y content too.

This week the email is sponsored by An Event Apart and their Fall Summit. Please do take a look at the offer in the footer of this email. It's a wonderful chance to attend An Event Apart without needing to travel to the USA!
