Thinking Inside the Box – My WordCamp San Francisco 2014 Lightning Talk

What started as a challenge ended up as a lightning talk at WordCamp San Francisco 2014: Explain the CSS Box Model in an understandable way to a crowd of mainly bloggers and designers. In 5 minutes. With no live code.

The video slides are unfortunately largely cut out of this video so you don’t get to see the fancy stuff the audience were privy to, but you get the general idea: On the web every tag is a box. And on the web magic happens when you think inside the box.

Very nice Presentation, you make things looks easier, and indeed they are, but some times i get myself lost with fast updates of everything in this days, lots of media queries, frameworks, clouds, etc, but i see in this presentation how we can start as we start things a way time ago, with a simple box, thank you for sharing!
