User: Join Us for an Introduction to CSS Grid

Monday, March 5, 2018
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

U.S. Bancorp Tower Conference Rooms
111 SW 5th Avenue, Portland, OR

Inspired by a WordCamp US lecture, Ginger Coolidge will show us a simple implementation of CSS Grid on a demo website.

CSS Grid Layout is the most powerful layout system available in CSS. It is a 2-dimensional system, meaning it can handle both columns and rows, unlike flexbox which is largely a 1-dimensional system. You work with Grid Layout by applying CSS rules both to a parent element (which becomes the Grid Container) and to that elements children (which become Grid Items). Which in plain english means it keeps everything in line and evenly spaced better than tables, floats, etc

The agenda:

  • 6:00 – 6:15: Introductions. What you do, are you looking to hire, are you looking for work?
  • 6:15 – 6:45: Speaker and topic.
  • 6:45 – 7:00: Questions and answers on the topic.
  • 7:00 – 8:00: Get help with WordPress. Bring your laptop for this part. There’s a wide range of experience levels, and we’re all here to help each other.
  • 8:00: Soft Close. You may hang out a bit longer to talk or finish up a project, but the official Meetup will end.

Some of us usually go for beers at Bailey’s Taproom (213 SW Broadway) afterwards. Let us know if you’re interested in joining!

To find us:

The room is on the ground floor. To the right of the elevators, go through the glass doors where it says Conference Center. Then go down the hall to the room labeled Training Room.

Please RSVP on Meetup so we know how many people to expect. We hope to see you there!
