Rebuilding Slack.com

Mina Markham:

In August, we released a major redesign of slack.com, and we want to give you a peek behind-the-scenes.

She goes on to show tons of details on their latest redesign. There are several bits I found interesting such as their attention to accessibility, how they handle fall backs for IE11, and how they made responsive illustrations.

CSS Grid

CSS Grid is rolling out to browsers. Firefox already, Chrome this week.

Eric Meyer:

For well more than a decade now, when asked what CSS needs more than anything, I’ve said it needs real, actual layout.  “A layout-shaped hole at its heart” is a phrase I may have used a fair few times.

A nice step forward in layout for the web.
