London CSS is back and we’re having our first event of 2019 on the 9th of May at Condé Nast International!

LondonCSS is an event in London for any one with an interest in CSS. We aim to bring together the community in London from professional developers to curious and/or creative minds. Our goal is to provide an evening of interesting talks while having some food and meet other CSS enthusiasts.

We have a fantastic evening planned with four talks along with time to network with the awesomely talented CSS community.

LAU GONZÁLEZ - Absolute unit

Laura walks us through CSS units old and new in our opening Lightning talk


CASSIE EVANS - Limitation breeds creativity

Constraints might not feel like what you want when you’re trying to kickstart creativity or start a new project. But working within constraints can help you get started and provide unconventional ways around a problem.

Come and see Cassie demo some of her favourite unconventional solutions.


JEAN-YVES PERRIER - Moar CSS features?

In 2019 older CSS features like fonts and floats still have their place even though flexbox and grid have arrived.

Jean-Yves takes us through a contemporary review of traditional approaches.


OLIVER TURNER - When Houdini met Goldblum

What is Houdini? Why can’t we declaratively animate linear gradients? …and what does either of these things have to do with Jeff Goldblum?

Get started experimenting with the capabilities of next-generation CSS and see how they can help us bring new user experiences to life on the web.
