[00:09:31] Heydon Pickering: Flexbox Holy Albatross
Designing interfaces is not easy. Especially when it comes to accessibility it is hard to do it „right“. With Heydon we talk about the difficulties we face when designing and coding different types of interfaces like dialogs or tabbed content. His project Inclusive Components can help you around the quirks of accessibility. In general using these patterns might not be a good idea though. Here is why.
You might also want to check out Heydon’s videos on different topics in regards to front-end development.
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.
