This weekend I gave an updated version of my talk on new CSS modules at WordCamp Montréal 2017. This talk is similar to the previous version, but with updated statistics, and Canada-specific statistics added.
Below is my talk description.
Check out all newest things that CSS can bring to WordPress theme development: CSS Filters, Feature Queries, Native Mixins, Grid Layout, Native Variables, and more. The W3C’s CSS Working Group is introducing a ton of new CSS modules in 2017. Learn how they work and when to use them. We’ll look at real examples that you can start using right now.
The talk is meant as a sampler of some new techniques that make CSS fun again. But I’d encourage you to follow the links in the slides to find tutorials and examples so that you can learn how to use these modules in more depth.
A couple of people asked questions after the talk, or requested more information.
- Rachel Andrew’s book, Get Ready For CSS Grid Layout, from A Book Apart.
- Information some performance data when using CSS filters at Smashing Magazine.
- Using CSS grid with Bootstrap
I’d love some feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment!
