Gianfranco Berardi (he | him | his) is a part-time indie game developer who loves to encourage curiosity, support creativity, and promote continuous learning. He likes to figure out how things work, whether it involves the dynamic systems of a computer game or the large interactions within an organization. You can find him at https://www.gbgames.com/ and on Twitter @GBGames.

Gianfranco will be giving a talk called CSS and How It’s Your Fault You Hate It. CSS has a reputation among many people of being frustrating and difficult to work with. As someone who is not a web developer, I took some time to learn it because I suspected that it is easy enough to work with that people forget how rich and powerful it is. Here’s what I found.
