Southern Area Meeting, 7pm Thursday 1st September 2016, Winchester

The next ISTC Southern Area event is at The Royal Oak, Royal Oak Passage, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 9AU, on Thursday 1st September 2016, from 7pm. We have reserved the lower bar (which is supposedly the oldest bar in Winchester).

Matthew Ellison will introduce us to CSS Flexbox.

This evening provides a high–level introduction to the CSS Flexbox Layout (Flexible Box) module, an exciting new technology that all technical communicators should be familiar with.

Matthew demonstrates how flexible web pages can be coded simply and elegantly for a range of different screen sizes using Flexbox techniques.

We’ll be there from 7pm, and Matthew’s talk will start around 7.30pm. Afterwards there will be the usual opportunity for questions, for serious discussion, or light-hearted chat, depending on your mood and inclination.

The event is free, and is open to ISTC members and non-members. But if you are planning to come, please register on Eventbrite click here so we can let the venue know how much space to reserve for us. You’ll also find directions and parking information in the Eventbrite listing.
