Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Video of the Week – Rachel Andrew: CSS Grid Layout

Now that it has support in browsers like Chrome and Firefox, CSS Grid is being recognised as the gamechanger it is for front end designers and developers.

That support has only come this month, but those who attended our Code 16 conference in July/August last year have been preparing for its advent ever since, thanks in large part to the detailed, pragmatic and quite inspiring talk given on the topic by Rachel Andrew, who can reasonably lay claim to knowing more about CSS Grid than anyone on the planet.

The video of that talk, CSS Grid Layout, is our Video of the Week, and I heartily recommend you set aside 50 minutes or so to find out what all the fuss is about and get to grips with how you can use CSS Grid to your best advantage.
