CSS Grid – A Most Excellent Adventure

Kirsty Burgoine — WordPress Engineer & Frontend Developer, Human Made

The CSS Grid specification is one of the most exciting additions to CSS, pretty much ever. And, much like Bill & Ted’s music did, it has the potential to create a “web” utopia in the future.

Kirsty will take you on a most excellent adventure exploring how to use CSS GRID in a production environment. Taking a tour of some of the new properties and units now available in the GRID Specification, how to create complex layouts and ensuring it is not a bogus journey by explaining some of the gotcha’s and how to get around them.

By the end, hopefully you will agree that CSS Grid really is Excellent and having a deep understanding of it will empower you to build truly flexible themes!
