In this free 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition (aneventapart.com/event/orlando-special-edition-2016) developer, entrepreneur, and world-renowned CSS expert Rachel Andrew introduces us to the web’s first native CSS grid layout system. Since the early days of the web, designers have been trying to lay out web pages using grid systems. Likewise, almost every CSS framework attempts to implement some kind of grid system, using floats and often leaning on preprocessors. The CSS Grid Layout module brings us a native CSS Grid system for the first time—a grid system that does not rely on document source order, and can create complex layouts which are easily redefined with media queries. Following along with practical examples, you’ll learn how Grid works, and how it can be used to implement modern layouts and responsive designs.

We work and live in a bubble. Our limited perspective of what it means to use technology influences the way we build, the tools we use, and the tasks we prioritize. In the process, we risk losing the most powerful thing about the internet: its ubiquity. Tim discusses the importance of broadening our perspective and makes the case for not losing sight of the fundamentals that make or break the web for people around the globe, and down the street.
Presented at Fluent in San Jose, CA on June 21, 2017
Originally, I was content in my job, happy even. But over time I grew to want more; more job satisfaction, more opportunities, more progression. I started working on making this possible at every opportunity; while I was in the office, nights, weekends, holidays – “hacking my career” to get more out of it whenever I had the chance. Eventually, I grew tired of my windowless office. I became frustrated with car spaces being assigned based on years of service. I didn’t like that in order for my career to “progress”, I had to give up doing what I loved. I hated my salary being determined by an Excel spreadsheet that was indexed against industry norms. I didn’t want to be an industry norm! So I changed it all, entirely independently and against most conventional wisdoms.
In this talk, I’ll take you through my journey from a normal everyday corporate software job to complete independence. I’ll share the things I did that made me happier and more productive whilst I was there, but also what I did to ultimately give me the choices in life to focus on the things I love doing in a post-corporate world. You’ll see what worked well, what failed, the abuse I got along the way and ultimately, what the spoils of success look like today.
