Front-end Need-to-Knows 2018

Keeping up with what's going on in the front-end web development world can be exhausting. It almost feels like our job security or skillset viability are often at the mercy of external factors such as browser support (think IE11 and below), constant new frameworks and development tools, and industry trends. This session will help you to stay ahead and also keep your sanity. I will share with you my ways to keep up with what's coming down the pipelines, be informed of the 2018 front-end development trends, review tools/features you should experiment and get familiar with to make yourself more marketable, and lastly how to stay sane in this fast-paced industry. Come join me for a session of knowledge sharing and fun-filled discussions!

Getting Good with Grid

Now that Grid will work on almost 90 percent of users according to caniuse.com it is becoming increasingly acceptable as the primary method of laying out content.

Grid brings in a new paradigm from traditional one dimensional layouts (row OR column) to having two dimensional layouts. This greatly reduces the amount of nesting of HTML elements and makes your HTML a great deal cleaner.

We will also discuss fallbacks and how to implement that for users who are using an older browser (using flexbox).
