Talk.CSS #38 Codepen edition

Event location: Titansoft

We finally had a long overdue CodePen edition, but in addition to that, we also had one of the best talks at Talk.CSS by Gao Wei on CSS blend-modes. She has also been cheated onto the SingaporeCSS pirate ship as our new co-organiser. 👯‍♀️

Also, to everyone who volunteered for the CodePen Show & Tell, including those who dialed in from overseas. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for your patience and willingness to go along with my hare-brained schemes.

In order of appearance, the biggest thank you to Chris and Sarah Lienert (🇦🇺), Olivia Ng (🇺🇸), Ayaka Sasaki (🇯🇵), Ten “Tenzy” Zhi Yang, Purnima Kamath and Jay.

So this happened…

CSS blend modes can sometimes seem magical, but it's really powered by math. Gao Wei explains the math with emoji equations and mind-blowing demos.
