OddBird is a small company —
a shared vision and brand
that transforms seven remote contractors
into a Web Software Agency.
2016 was a year of big changes for us,
individually and as a company.
We can't distance ourselves from the world we work in,
or the lives of our members, colleagues, and clients.
Software is never neutral,
and neither are we.
There's work to do.
I did a live Q&A at SitePoint
back in August.
We talked about
customizing Susy for your needs,
why you might not need a grid system,
other tools I'm working on,
and how to select or build your own toolkits.
It was a wild two-hours
of typing as fast as I could,
and hoping to sound intelligent.
Thanks for asking the questions!
It was a pleasure speaking at
CSSConf 2016 in Boston!
Here are some of my notes from the event —
coverig everything from
creativity and the Bauhaus movement
to SVG 2 internals,
CSS grid layouts,
and custom properties
(e.g. CSS-native variables).
I included links to slides and video
Susy Next alpha 5 is out, and loaded with changes.
We now require Sass 3.3,
we no longer require Compass,
and there have been major syntax improvements.
We're getting real close to launch,
and we'd love to know what you think.
Play around, and let us know!
