  • CSS Grid Layout from the inside out
  • Time: 1:30pm - 2:15pm | Room: >CJM Classroom
Layout on the web has been missing a proper solution for creating grid designs since the beginning. But this dark period is coming to an end with the new CSS Grid Layout spec. Grid layout is being implemented in every major web engine. The good news is that it will be hitting your browsers very soon.

During this talk we will not only review its syntax and main features, but also explain the internal details about what the browser has to do to render a CSS grid. After the talk, you'll be able to start playing with CSS Grid Layout, understanding the underlying steps involved, and provide feedback to the spec editors and browser implementors.
