On Tour @ #cssday 2019 4/4 with Elika J. Etemad (aka. Fantasai) and Florian Rivoal
This interview is part of our four-part series On Tour @ #cssday.
[00:09:31] Elika J. Etemad (Fantasai): Line Layout & Vertical Rhythm and Florian Rivoal: Line Breaking
Elika and Florian both work a lot on CSS Specifications. We discuss the different topics of Line Breaking and Vertical Layout for text which were the talks of the both speakers. After some historical background we speak about the challenges the W3C Experts face when writing specifications and how they evolve over time.
Both Elika and Florian are also members of the W3C Advisory Board. They give us a short insight in what the board does and how the processes at W3C affect their work.
About the conference
In June 2019 we visited beautiful Amsterdam again to be part of CSS Day 2019 (with a UI special) taking place at Compagnietheater. CSS Day is organised since 2013 by Peter-Paul Koch, Krijn Hoetmer, and Martijn van Duuren – the people behind performance.now(), Mobilism and dsgnday.
This year’s edition featured great CSS talks going into details of how CSS properties like
word-break work and talks about more design focused topics like how we can design better interfaces.
We’re sure there will be another CSS Day next year. So stay tuned.
