CSS Brigade is back with a new event May 29th at Hootsuite!

This time around we have two essential talks that will cover CSS Selectors (level 2, 3 and 4) and z-index!

Here are the details of the two presentations:

Z-index: Layer the DOM to your will

Ever had troubles with an element that’s “stuck” under other elements, even though it has the highest z-index in the DOM? Ever had problems troubleshooting layered elements using CSS?

Trouble no more! Learn about z-index and how to use it to layer the DOM to your will. Anny will cover two important concepts: stacking context and stacking order. You will walk away with a new-found appreciation for z-index’s powers, and tips for troubleshooting CSS layering problems.

Anny is a passionate young web developer, specializing in responsive front-end design, HTML/CSS and javascript.

CSS Selectors Best Practices & Performance

We’ve come a long way since the old days of CSS! Dave is here to bring us up to date by showing us how to use some handy level 2 and 3 selectors, diving into selector best practices and performance implications. Finally he will give a sneak peak into the future of level 4 selectors!

Dave is a front-end web developer and web technologies instructor. He passionately follows progressive web technologies and techniques including HTML5, CSS3 and multi-device web design and development. Dave also loves biking!
