We’ve finally reached a point where enough people have spoken at Talk.CSS to warrant having a dedicated past speakers page. The existence of this page (as well as the past meetups page) is a milestone for Talk.CSS.
So far, 74 lovely people have spoken at Talk.CSS, we want you to be one of them too. If you’re thinking, “but I have nothing to talk about”, we can help. Anything related to CSS will work. It could be something you debugged at work, or about a new property you read about, or something you built, or even a rant about why something doesn’t work the way you want it.
Even if you just have an inkling of an idea, do get in touch with Hui Jing or Wei. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org, send us messages on meetup.com or Facebook, tweet at us (@SingaporeCSS, @wgao19 and @hj_chen), ping us on the KopiJS slack channel or our own Gitter channel. We are totally accessible.
Well, it's still a mystery, so check back to see if the kittencorn has been replaced.
