  • Jessica Lyschik: How Subgrid enhances CSS Grid

    WordCamp Europe 2020Speaker: Jessica Lyschik

    June 21, 2020 — CSS Grid has been around for over two years in major browsers. While it’s amazing to work with, there’s still room for improvement. Currently, only direct child elements of a container can be placed with CSS Grid.
    With Subgrid, you can bring the defined grid another level down. This enhances the feature of CSS Grid even further. In this talk, Jessica wants to show the possibilities that Subgrid creates.

  • Jessica Lyschik: CSS Grid in freier Wildbahn

    WordCamp Stuttgart 2019Speaker: Jessica Lyschik

    November 10, 2019 — Seit CSS Grid im Jahr 2017 in modernen Browsern eingeführt wurde, können Entwickler endlich komplexe Layouts mit weniger Code erstellen. Allerdings funktioniert CSS Grid etwas anders als das, was Entwickler bisher mit CSS Frameworks umgesetzt haben. In diesem Talk möchte ich Beispiele zeigen, wie ich CSS Grid bisher auf Websites eingesetzt habe. Dazu gibt es noch Tipps für Fallback-Layouts, falls doch noch ältere Browser wie Internet Explorer 10 oder 11 unterstützt werden müssen. Denn das sollte heute keine Ausrede mehr sein, CSS Grid nicht zu benutzen!

  • Jessica Lyschik: CSS Grid in the Wild

    WordCamp Zurich 2019Speaker: Jessica Lyschik

    September 25, 2019 — Since CSS Grid was introduced in modern browsers in 2017, developers finally are able to create complex layouts with less code. CSS Grid works a bit differently than the CSS frameworks developers are used to, so there’s a learning curve to get it. In this talk I want to show some examples how to use CSS Grid on websites, including either support or fallback layouts for Internet Explorer 10 and 11. Because this shouldn’t be an excuse anymore not to use CSS Grid today!

  • Tiffany Kuchta: CSS Grid IRL

    WordCamp Asheville 2018Speaker: Tiffany Kuchta

    January 8, 2019 — The murmuring about CSS Grid in the world of frontend development has gotten quite loud indeed. If you’ve been a developer awhile, you remember when CSS finally became powerful enough to overtake the almighty table. You probably also really love the incredible tool that is Flexbox, even if you, like I do, still need to reference the same darn CSS Tricks article every time you use it. So what’s Grid’s deal? What makes it so great anyway, and when can you start using it IRL? What if you don’t want to duplicate development, building complex fallbacks for legacy browsers? How do you decide if a project is a good fit for CSS Grid, and then how do you even get started? We’ll discuss these questions, review some tools and tricks, and look at a few examples of CSS Grid in action.

  • Mary Baum: CSS Grid

    WordCamp Miami 2018Speaker: Mary Baum

    July 10, 2018 — Are you thinking about CSS grids for your layouts? Browser support is just about here.

    I’ve been looking hard at the work of Jen Simmons and Rachel Andrew, the two people writing most of the material to teach us designer/dev types what we need to know to start using this new spec.

    And thanks to some time I’ve spent playing on CodePen, I think I’m ready to use grids in WordPress!

    So let’s look at:
    – WHAT CSS grids are.
    – WHERE it makes sense to use them.
    – HOW they help us make previously tough problems solve themselves.
    – WHY grids are not just great for symmetrical layouts – but also wildly asymmetrical ones as well.
    – And I’ll see you on the grid!
