1. Building Challenging Layouts with CSS Grid
👩 Michelle Baker

Skill level: Beginner, Intermediate

When it comes to crafting layouts on the web, CSS Grid is more powerful than anything we’ve had available to us before. In this talk I’ll walk through an example of harnessing the power of Grid to build complex, responsive, two-dimensional components, and demonstrate how we can use CSS variables to keep our Grid code DRY, reusable and maintainable.

2. Form UX: How to design & code a user-friendly form
👨 Liam Jay

Skill Level: Beginner, Intermediate

Forms aren't normally hip and trendy aspects of web design, but almost every website has them, so getting them right is crucial. A form with great UX is easy for your visitors to work though, simple to understand, and looks professional.

My talk will cover how to design and code a great looking form that's accessible and easy to use.

Please arrive from ⌚ 6.30pm. You will be greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable volunteers who will help you get your name badge and get settled in. We aim to start the talks at around ⌚ 7pm so there's plenty of time to meet our other members, get a drink 🍻 and have a graze from the buffet 🍕 we provide thanks to our generous sponsors.

We usually start the night off with some updates about what's happening in the local and national WordPress community and members are welcome to add their own updates. Speak to one of the organisers wearing a red name badge before we start if you'd like to say or ask something.

After the first talk we take a break and then have our second talk. Following that if you want to stick around a few of us usually hang around for another drink and chat. The talks usually finish around ⌚ 9.15pm (ish).
