Talk.CSS #30

Event location: SP Digital

Our big three-O, and I’m really glad that we finally got Jacob, who has been doing excellent work, writing really interesting articles, to give his first talk. More to come! Also, glad to have Sophie come in and talk a bit about HTTP/2 server push, because we need more talks about the network side of things. And of course, we’re always happy to have Zell, who has been with us since Day 1, to share his vast knowledge.

So this happened…

CSS colour of the month

Link to Frontend development is hard video

Jacob makes an excellent case of why frontend development, often perceived as ‘less-than‘, is actually way more challenging than non-FEDs think.

Link to Frontend dependency tracing for HTTP/2 server push video

A fantastic introduction to HTTP/2 server push by Sophie, and she built a super cool tool to write dependencies into the resource manifest for you.

Link to Responsive vertical rhythm with CSS Custom Properties and calc() video

Zell is back! This time to explain how CSS Custom Properties AKA CSS variables can be utilised with calc() to build a better typography system for your projects.
