Full Stack is proud to partner with DinosaurJS (https://dinosaurjs.org/) and Mozilla (https://www.mozilla.org) to present the Mozilla Developer Roadshow, a worldwide series of open web focused events. There will be just one talk this meetup, providing ample time for discussion, networking, and getting to know the Mozilla crew - they're working on a lot of cool things! As usual, food and beverages will be provided.

This is the official pre-DinosaurJS hangout! DinosaurJS tickets are NOT required to attend Full Stack, but there are still a few left if you're a last-minute-conference-goer (June 15th/16th - purchase (https://ti.to/dinosaurjs/2017)). In celebration of our magnificent prehistoric friends, we'll have dinosaur-related giveaways!

Our speaker this evening will be renown web advocate Matthew Claypotch (twitter (https://twitter.com/potch), github (https://github.com/potch), website (https://potch.me/)). He will present the latest and greatest in front-end design with CSS. See below for talk details. Moments prior, Mozillian Justin Crawford will give a brief overview of Mozilla and its product roadmap for 2017.

How CSS Grid is Reinventing Webpage Design

Overview: In the early years of the web, there were limits on where you could put content on a web page. Now, with CSS properties powering dynamic layouts in browsers, a renaissance in layout design patterns is emerging. In this interactive workshop, potch shows us how we can leverage CSS and related tools to craft innovative designs for the web.

What You’ll Take Away: Get a firm grasp on new CSS tools to build webpages as close to your vision as possible.
- Learn how graphic designers have been setting up CSS grids since the beginning of time.
- Discover how the new CSS Grid Layout property will revolutionize your webpage layouts and simplify your existing ones for a seamless user experience.

Why It Matters: With new tools available to simplify your design process, you’ll be able to build your ideal webpage layout without compromising the user experience.

Featured Expert: Matthew Claypotch is a Web Developer Advocate at Mozilla. He's also the creator of UnmaintainedTech, which encourages people to open source their software even when they don't have time to support it. When he's not building dashboards or making stickers, he's probably singing karaoke. Or singing in the car. Or shower. Follow @potch (https://twitter.com/potch) on Twitter
