In the early years of the web, there was a lot of experimentation with where to put content on a page. Then we all settled into a handful of patterns that didn’t change for over a decade. It wasn’t until the arrival of responsive design that new ideas for page layout started appearing. Now, with new CSS properties for layout landing in browsers, we’re about to see a renaissance in layout design patterns. Where are we going, and how can we better design for the true medium at hand?

Our schedule follows a single-track format. That means you don’t have to miss a single speaker—you can see them all!
