If 2017 was the year of new CSS capabilities, 2018 was the year of trying to figure out what to do with them all. When should boxes flex, and when should they be gridded? What are the best ways to manage your team’s approach to all these new powers? What’s ready for production, and what’s useful in the shop?

In this hour-long talk, Eric Meyer turns his experienced eye for CSS on the new technologies that emerged in 2018 and explores different ways of using and thinking about them. Whether you’re new to the game or an old hand, there will be something for you to ponder, something to put to use, and something to illuminate.
