Justin Self, Improving Enterprises
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.
Justin’s hobbies include reading, playing guitar and constantly learning about anything and everything. In addition, Justin is a self-professed arborist-in-training and enjoys pointing out the differences between trees and everyday objects. He and his wife are expecting their first child this spring.
