Responsive Design 2.0: The Death of Bootstrap

English session - Intermediate

For the first time in the history of the web, CSS is graced with tools for laying out web pages without hacks. Flexbox and Grid provide methods for creating responsive websites with designs not previously possible. CSS Calc and CSS Custom Fields give us a first chance to use math and variables within CSS itself, without requiring compiling. Together, these four new CSS modules work together to revolutionize CSS in modern evergreen browsers.

English session - Beginner

Make your next talk a truly memorable and educational presentation.
