Once you have grasped the basics of CSS Grid, you quickly discover how it enables many existing design patterns in a streamlined, elegant way. However, we shouldn’t see Grid in isolation. Understanding how other parts of CSS work together with Grid is key, in order to get the most out of our new abilities.

In this talk Rachel will be concentrating on a couple of these areas, CSS Box Alignment and CSS Sizing. Rachel will show you practical ways in which a little bit of knowledge in these areas can unlock the full potential of the Grid Specification. You’ll learn how to create useful components and to start thinking of ways in which you can solve design and interface problems in more creative ways.

Rachel Andrew is Managing Director and founder of a web development company edgeofmyseat.com which has created their own CMS products Perch and Perch Runway. Her consultancy work ranges from front and back-end development to operations, including fixing CSS issues, writing a Puppet manifest and writing a Perch app in PHP. She is a highly sought after presenter, in Seattle for An Event Apart, followed by a Smashing event in SF. We are lucky to have her speaking with us from the UK.
