Daniel Koskinen: Moving from CSS Frameworks to CSS Grid

Continue the discussion


February 18, 2018

“For the first time since its inception, CSS now has a real two-dimensional layout tool in the CSS Grid specification. We’ve had to resort to using floats, inline blocks and most recently, flexbox. Because using these for layout is essentially a hack, we’re often tempted to resort to grid frameworks like those provided by Foundation and Bootstrap.

Using examples, my talk will look at how we can do what we’ve done with frameworks using CSS Grid instead, and also how we can do things we couldn’t do before without complex tricks or JavaScript. I’ll also share some thoughts on using CSS Grid in production today, accessibility concerns and tips on the best resources for learning more.

This talk will be useful for both beginners, intermediate and long-time front end devs who aren’t yet too familiar with CSS Grid. It should also be interesting to designers who want to know what is possible with todays CSS.”
