This week we discuss CSS Grid Layout with Jen Simmons, Designer Advocate at the Mozilla Foundation. We also cover how web standards are made, how that’s different from the past, and how to keep up with it all.
Grid is getting a ton of support in modern browsers and so we’ve got a couple of grid experts in Jen Simmons and Rachel Andrew on to help us navigate the grid – what is it? When can we use it? How do flexbox and grid play together? What about Bootstrap?
7:00 What is grid? And what does it mean?
16:30 What’s the mobile story for grid?
22:30 What is grid and why should someone be excited about it?
27:40 What about all that extra CSS with grid?
36:10 What’s autofill?
47:40 How do flexbox and grid play together?
1:01:02 When should you use something like Bootstrap?
Jen Simmons (@JenSimmons), Designer Advocate at Mozilla, creators Layout Land, host of The Web Ahead, and driving force with Rachel Andrew behind CSS Grid in our browsers, is Jeffrey Zeldman’s guest.
Everything about web page layout is changing. New CSS specifications will make it possible to do designs we’ve never seen before. Rachel Andrew joins Jen Simmons to talk about what’s happening.
Andy Budd, co-founder of British design agency Clearleft,
joins the program to talk about design leadership.
This week’s special guest is Peter Merholz, one of my co-founders at Adaptive Path and author of the new book, "Org Design for Design Orgs."
Rachel Andrew is a CSS Grid Layout module superfan. It’s the layout method she’s been waiting for ever since she started dabbling in CSS for layout in the late 90s. Having tracked development of the module from the early days of the IE10 implementation, she is very excited to see it come to life in Chrome. In this talk Rachel will show you how Grid Layout works, and explain why you should become a fan of Grid Layout too.
Special guest and old friend Mike Monteiro returns to discuss his new book, “Ruined by Design.” We talk about whether the design industry needs a set of ethical standards and the ways in which they might be enforced.
My good friend Erika Hall returns to the show. She’s a founder and principal at Mule Design, and author of the forthcoming book "Conversational Design."
Special guest Josh Brewer, CEO and co-founder of Abstract, joins the show to discuss how we make design — from mockups to prototypes to production and through collaboration, process, and everything in between.
