CSS in 2022 (and beyond) (2022.09.09 @ Fronteers Conf)

View from the side of the movie theatre

On September 9, I was in Utrecht for Fronteers Conference 2022 – a conference I’ve been attending since back in 2009. This time – after a two year hiatus due to youknowwhat – I was very glad to be back! This time not as an attendee though, but as a speaker. In my talk I covered many of the new CSS features that have recently landed or – thanks to interop 2022 – will land in browsers later this year.

Things have been going hard for CSS the past few years, and there’s a bunch of new and exciting stuff on its way.

With this talk you’ll be up to speed on some very nice recent additions, and will get a glimpse of a lot of the features that will be landing across all browsers by the end of this year.

And oh, time permitting we’ll also take a look into the future of what’s to come next ….

As I had somewhat expected, we didn’t get round to the future stuff, as there were so many other things to talk about!



The slides are up on slidr.io:



The talk was recorded and is embedded below. This recording might be of more help, as the slides themselves lack some explanation and supporting animations to tell the whole story.

One-page Summary

Attendee Anke created this wonderful one-page sketchnote to summarize the talk. Excellent work I must say!

The Fronteers Conf 2022 organisers and volunteers

I would like to thank the organisers and all volunteers for having me. Having organised events for almost a decade now, they know how to do it – even a totally new city+venue+format was no hurdle to them.

I especially liked how the organisers managed to create a well-balanced program. We got to hear about UX/research, HTTP/performance, fonts/design, CSS, Privacy, HTML/Progressive Enhancement … a very nice mixture imo! So with this, a big thank you to the other speakers as well for giving their talks – the quality, as per usual, was very high level.

Hopefully you all had fun attending my talk — I know I had making it (and whilst bringing it forward) — and perhaps you even learned something from it along the way 🙂


💁‍♂️ If you are a conference or meetup organiser, don't hesitate to contact me to come speak at your event.
