Tinned Fruit Missives December 2017
Declining Complexity in CSS - Eric Meyer
Using CSS Grid: Supporting Browsers Without Grid - Rachel Andrew
This should be your new go-to article when someone asks whether CSS Grid is ready for production. As always, the answer is ‘it depends’, but Rachel’s article describes how you actually decide whether your project is ready for it and what supporting it actually involves.
Some other World Wide Web hyperlinks I have enjoyed this month
- Introducing the New Firefox: Firefox Quantum - Mark Mayo - I switched to Firefox from Chrome as a trial and so far I’m seeing very little reason to switch back again.
- Designing for a Browserless Web - Mitch Lenton
- CSS for Teams - Jenn Lukas
- Seven into Seven - Ethan Marcotte - Further well-aimed criticism of Google’s AMP
- WebAssembly support now shipping in all major browsers - Judy DeMocker - We might start seeing some more mainstream WebAssembly stuff pretty soon. Time to brush off my C++ skills (exactly four lectures at university).
- Running in Circles: Why Agile Isn’t Working and What We Do Differently - Ryan Singer - Spoiler: what Basecamp are doing is agile (with a small ‘a’)
- Beyond the Cult of Human-Centered Design - Rob Girling & Emilia Palaveeva
