Issue 7

This week I am heading into London to speak at Generate Conference on CSS Grid Layout, I've also got an article on the subject in Net Mag.

After Generate I fly to New Mexico to keynote the NAGW Conference. I'm pretty much hopping from one conference to another over the next two months. You can see my schedule here and I'm always happy to chat about CSS layout or anything else if you are at any of these.

I've had various people ask if I accept submissions for this newsletter - the answer to that is YES! Just hit reply if you have something that you think other readers would find helpful.
