Stop guessing and finally learn CSS positioning

Speaker:

Justin Self, Improving Enterprises

Abstract:

It’s 1 am and you’ve got to get this UI fixed in order to push out a hotfix to production. Not really knowing what’s happening, you open Chrome and start modifying the display and position properties of the problem elements. You try block, then inline, then inline-block, then table, the relative, then static, then absolute. Finally, by mere chance, the element is positioned correctly and you have no idea why.

Has this ever happened to you? Seriously, it’s time to finally understand CSS positioning. In this session, we’ll explore the 20% of CSS that will cost you 80% of the time: floats, position, padding, margin, and display. If you are ready to finally be proficient, this is the talk for you.
