In this issue are a couple of videos from CSS Day earlier this year. I've been looking out for these being posted so I could share them as I attended the event this year, and they are well worth a watch.
I'm back at home this week before heading out to Berlin for View Source where I will be speaking about new layout methods in CSS. My favourite part of talking about these new layout methods is just how excited people get as they start to see the possibilities. Here is a Storify with tweets out of An Event Apart last week - it really is so much fun to show people a glimpse of the future!

I've been building websites for 20 years, I've been running my own business for 15 of them. Here are some thoughts about our history - and why I'm still excited about the web.
In this talk recorded at CSS Day Léonie looks at the changing relationship between design and structure brought by new layout methods such as flexbox, and what it means for accessibility mechanics in the browser.
A quick demo I created while putting together some examples for my upcoming conference talks. Here is how to use Grid (and a touch of flexbox) to create a hero image panel that copes with differing sizes and amounts of content.
In another talk from CSS Day find out how to create responsive layouts that don't require media queries. This is one of the nice things about our newer layout methods - they are inherently responsive which means we can do far less work!
A demo and article detailing a technique that uses a combination of border-image and SVG to make 9-sliced SVGs for flexibly sized shadows.
SitePoint have started a series called AtoZ of CSS. Here is A with The CSS Value of auto.
Some nice tips including using
calc() in your grids and for aligning
position: fixed elements.
This is fun if you want to compare how different front-end frameworks do things or find snippets for a framework you already use.
We believe that content management systems should manage content really really well, and leave the design and front-end code to you. That's why when you use Perch or Perch Runway you have full control of everything the CMS outputs.
Use any framework you like, or your own carefully crafted HTML and CSS. Output to JSON instead of HTML? No problem at all! And with our focus on performance your site should be super-fast too!
