Miriam leads our process,
working with clients and users to organize priorities,
and find solutions to their unique problems.
She is a pioneer of modern CSS techniques
and open source Sass tools –
including the popular Susy responsive-grid toolkit,
and True unit-testing library.
She is the co-author of
SitePoint’s Jump Start Sass,
a well-known speaker at front-end conferences,
and a multi-media artist
with extensive experience in theatre,
writing, music, and visual art.
Most grids change with the viewport –
and Susy needs new settings at each breakpoint.
Susy3 is designed without mixins
for complete flexibility from project to project,
but it can be useful to build additional tools
and shortcuts as you go.
Here are some snippets to help you get started
working with Susy across different media queries.
We’re excited to introduce Susy 3.0,
a major update to our popular grid-math calculator –
now more focused and flexible than ever.
Susy was designed to make layout math easy,
without forcing you into generic patterns
and ugly markup.
But grid systems are on the way out,
replaced by real CSS layout specs
that live in the browser.
we want to help make that a smooth transition.
Living Style Guide documentation on the web
is a difficult problem,
gaining a lot of attention in the last few years.
Let’s take an in-depth look
at one way to store patterns directly in Sass,
and generate documentation automatically.
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
