When CSS Grid Layout shipped into multiple browsers in the Spring of 2017 it heralded the dawn of a new way to do layout on the web. In this video, captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, Rachel Andrew looks back at what went right or wrong in these first few months, and offers help to those struggling to transition away from legacy methods.

In a practical, example-packed hour, Rachel helps give you the confidence and practical skills to fully embrace Grid layout. She compares common framework patterns to new Grid code, and teaches how to create a workflow that is right up to date—a workflow grounded in new CSS, yet able to care for old browsers and ensure a good experience for their users.
