Miriam Suzanne speaking at CSSDay

CSSDay 2016 Recap

CSSDay was held in sunny Arizona on December 3, 2016. The conference is geared towards front-end developers who want to dive deeper into advanced CSS topics.

CSS Day 2016 covered a wide range of topics for a one day conference including SVG, animation, color theory, design, layout and more. Throughout the day, a focus on code architecture was a theme. Attendees heard a few different perspectives which were interesting to listen to and compare.

Below are the available videos and slides of each session, including two from our very own OddBirds.

Sarah has become one of the primary voices on web-SVG and animation, leading to her recent SVG Animations book from O’Reilly.

John’s talk was a case study looking into the benefits of switching from jQuery to CSS for web and mobile applications.

The organizers and volunteers did a great job bringing the community together.

Helping to plan CSSDay with my friends as a conference by developers, for developers, has been one of the most rewarding and exciting things that I’ve been able to do in my career. I’ve met so many amazing and talented people along the way. It has been an experience.

    Use the Right Container Query Syntax

    Size queries are stable, and shipping in browsers

    Since we got a first look at a Container Queries prototype back in April 2021, the syntax has changed a few times. But now the spec is stable, browsers are getting ready to ship, and it’s time to make sure you’re using the same syntax they are!
