    Mary Baum: Momma’s Got a Brand New Grid

    WordCamp Albuquerque 2018Speaker: Mary Baum

    February 27, 2018 — Who’s ready to start using CSS grids in WordPress? Welp – I’ve got ‘em going in a couple Genesis child themes. Browsers are all in with support. They work with Flexbox, so we can use both at once. And they help make previously painful layout problems solve themselves. So let’s take a look at the hard work of the two engineers who have spent years getting these blocks stacking – CSS celebs Jen Simmons and Rachel Andrew. Let’s take a look at the simplest ways to use Grid, because at that level it’s pretty much indistinguishable from magic. For one thing, you can save floats for wrapping text around objects (and the swimming pool). For another, you can cut a whole lot of cruft from a style sheet. So what’re you waiting for? Let’s get our themes on the grid!

    WordCamp D.C. 2017Speaker: Alexis Findiesen

    November 19, 2017 — We’ll talk about some of the more recently-released CSS tools you can use now! In this session, we’ll cover some of the hottest, flashiest, and most problem-solvingest CSS standards, their use cases, syntax, and situations where you shouldn’t use them. Even if some of these are unfamiliar, if you haven’t worked on the front-end in a while, or if you’re new to coding, this session is for you. You don’t need to use JavaScript to create cool animations or columns that automatically fill the space – you can do it all with CSS! We’ll cover browser support and some fallbacks you can use to get you started using these new tools today.

    In this session, you’ll get an intro to:
    CSS Grids
    Pseudo elements (:before, :after, :nth-child)
    Transitions & Animations
    Blend Modes
    Textured Typography
    Browser Support and Graceful Fallbacks for all of the above!

    For some sections of this session, we’ll talk about SCSS mixins. You can also achieve the same results with a little more pure CSS, so while some knowledge of Sass is great, it isn’t necessary. Labeled as “intermediate,” as this session does require a basic knowledge of CSS.

    Saied Abbasi: Death Of The Media Query

    WordCamp Montreal 2017Speaker: Saied Abbasi

    October 7, 2017 — We’ve all been there. Your site looks beautiful on mobile, tablet, and desktop but 768 pixels to 900 pixels is a disaster. Creating a truly responsive website experience goes beyond using bootstrap. Frontend Developers consistently find themselves creating elaborate sets of Media Queries that are time consuming to create and difficult to maintain.

    This talk will explore browser-compatible innovations in CSS that you should start employing in place of Media Queries. The end result will save time and create more adaptive web experiences.

    We will explore practical use cases for the calc() function, Flexbox, and Mozilla’s CSS Grid.

Давайте разберёмся с этим вопросом раз и навсегда.
