CSS Exclusions and Shapes on the Road

CSS Exclusions and Shapes have been busy.

In early April, I had the opportunity to speak at HTML5 Dev Conf in San Francisco about how web standards, including Exclusions & Shapes, are advancing faster than ever. The talk took a brief tour through the history of CSS, and examined more recent developments in the W3C process and the web in general. If you’re interested in taking a look, the slides are available on GitHub.

Last week, CSS Exclusions also made a MAX debut. We even got mentioned in Monday’s keynote (look for us around the 41:30 mark).


At MAX, I also presented Exclusions as part of a lab exploring new web layout features, many of which are still very experimental. The lab contained exercises utilizing parts of the FlexBox, Grid, Regions, Exclusions, Shapes, and Web Components specifications to create several different page layouts. The lab materials have since been posted online, along with the intro slides, so feel free to take a peek.


Thank you to everyone who attended these sessions. Now it’s time to get back to work with the Exclusions and Shapes team and make these features happen.

    I was there at MAX and attended a couple of sessions on layouts, exclusions and regions. Very interesting. Looking forward to trying them out soon.
