Recorded July 2nd, 2015. This week we talked about responsive design rules and grid systems on the web.
Note: Miriam was filling in for Amélie Lamont who fell very ill and was unable to attend the conference. Miriam found out she was speaking less than 30 minutes before having to present.
I built Susy, a Sass grid system that can generate any grid technique you like — but I haven’t used it in years. I’ll show you how various grid systems work, and how to avoid using them. For those few cases where a grid really is required, we’ll talk about the best ways to roll your own, so you’re not relying on a bloated library to make decisions for you. We’ll also look at the new layout toys — from flexbox to CSS Grid — and how to get started with only a few lines of code.
- When to use floats, CSS Grid, flexbox, custom properties, and other techniques.
- How to make grid-math simple, and lose the grid-system.
- How to make grid-systems work for you when you need them.
Presented by Miriam Suzanne at Clarity 2017, on November 28th, 2017. Ends with an interview with Una Kravets

I’m having a hard time containing my excitement for CSS grid: a spec thats been in the works for a while, but is finally here! News of grid has been exploding in popularity on the web as its becoming increasingly implemented in browsers (upvote here for Edge). Firefox also just came out with a pretty sweet Grid editing view in its developer tools, and I imagine Chrome will soon, too.
Grids: they’re everywhere Emblematic of modernity, the grid gives form to everything from skyscrapers and office cubicles to Mondrian paintings and bits of computer code. But the grid has a history that long predates modernity; it is the most prominent visual structure in Western culture.
Ariel McGlothin has been living in a tiny house off-grid in the mountains of Wyoming for the last 6 years.
She has had to deal with keeping her tiny house warm in extreme temperatures and deep snow all with no connection to the grid.
In this podcast, she shares generously of her experiences and the systems she uses to make this possible. She shares such things as where she gets her water, dealing with dry heat and condensation. How to keep your feet warm, etc.
