Now You See It

Programming - Mar 31, 2024

I recently accepted a teaching position at a local college here in SoCal where I’ll be spouting off whatever I know (or more likely don’t know!) about HTML and CSS. It’s suffice to say I was all ears (well, actually eyes) when Rachel Andrew recently published a post on teaching CSS.

The display property is a core piece to understanding the layout possibilities of CSS, particularly, as Rachel points out, the outer value (block and inline) and the inner formatting context (coming in grid, flex and normal flow varieties). Understanding that difference is what led to my personal CSS “A-ha!” moment.

That’s why I’m so glad to see Rachel publish the slides from her presentation at An Event Apart in San Francisco this month.

We’re talking 114 slides of pure box-y goodness! Pay close attention to slides 37-42 because they cover information on the refactored two-value display syntax.
