Topic:
When it comes to building responsive web layouts we’ve used tables, floats and Flexbox. Now there’s CSS Grid. In this talk, we’ll go over what differentiates it from other techniques and why it’s completely changing the game. Through code examples and demos, you’ll walk out out of this talk about to start using Grid right away.

Skill Level (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced):
Beginner

Speaker:
After working in music publicity and feeling unfulfilled, Kara Luton made the switch to tech. Now she has a passion for introducing women just like herself to the tech world and showing them that it’s an option for them too. Outside of work, Kara enjoys playing with her golden retriever mix, going to concerts and seeing a ballet whenever she can. You can reach Kara at [masked] or on Twitter at @karaluton.

Bike Parking:
Free bike parking is available in front of Cummins Station. Don't forget your bike lock and reflectors for riding home at night!

Less Than $1 or Free Street Parking:
All of the parallel parking spaces along the front of Cummins Station (and the nearby streets) are free after 6pm (http://www.parkitdowntown.com/parking/on-street-parking). A few of these spots are reserved for valet in the evenings, so if you see a valet sign, park elsewhere.
If you arrive earlier than 6pm, put in just enough exact change to cover you until the spots turn free at 6PM.

The Frist Parking Lot:
Across the street from Cummins Station, is the cheapest paid parking option.
Rates: $1.50 first 1/2 hour; $6 first hour; $3 each additional hour; $24 daily max; Special events pricing as posted.

Note: this parking lot is on the north side of Cummins Station, and Eventbrite is on the south side. However, you can enter Cummins Station from the North and walk through the inside of the building to get to the Eventbrite office.

Paid Lot Parking:
Two paid parking lots are available directly across from Cummins Station. Last time we inquired, the rates was $6/hour after 5PM, with a maximum evening cost of $12, unless there is a special event pricing in effect.

If you eat in a restaurant in Cummins Station, you can get your parking validated, which reduces the cost to free in many cases.
