Issue 215

Hello from sunny Freiburg, Germany!

I've been here for a meeting with the Smashing Magazine team, plus SmashingConf Freiburg, which is happening right now. After this I'll be heading to W3C TPAC, this year in Japan, for a week of W3C and CSS Working Group meetings. September and October are always busy months, as we head into the final quarter of the year. Lot's to share this week including the collaboration between Caniuse and MDN, and a site like Caniuse but for HTML email compat - which was launched at SmashingConf.

Yesterday I hosted a Web We Want panel at SmashingConf. Check out the site and add your own wants for the web platform. If you can't be at one of the events, that's fine. The moderator can present your idea for you, or you can send a video. It's a great way to have your ideas for the platform discussed.

The sponsor this week is An Event Apart. There are two more events this year, and all of the dates for 2020 are now published. Maybe I will see you at one of them?
