6:55pm, Don’t Use My Grid System - Miriam Suzanne (http://miriamsuzanne.com)

A complete guide to the history of web layout, how grid systems work, and practical tip to avoid using them — from the creator of Susy. For those few cases where a grid really is required, we’ll talk about the best ways to roll your own, so you’re not relying on a bloated library to make decisions for you. We’ll also look at the new layout toys — from flexbox to CSS Grid — and how to get started with only a few lines of code.


Miriam is an author, performer, musician, designer, and web developer — working with OddBird, Teacup Gorilla, Grapefruit Lab, and CSS Tricks. She’s the author of Riding SideSaddle* and The Post-Obsolete Book, co-author of Jump Start Sass, and creator of the Susy and True open-source toolkits.

Our meetup has implemented the PyCon "Code of Conduct" (https://us.pycon.org/2018/about/code-of-conduct/) for ensuring all members attending a session feel included and heard. Thanks for your mutual respect to one another.
