Flexbox is the next big thing that has happened in CSS world in recent times. This talk will aim to introduce and demo the CSS Flexbox and how it can solve so many CSS layouting issues without hacks.


From ages CSS has been lacking any concrete layout techniques whether its about creating grid layout or changing order of elements. In fact many a times we have to rely on JS to tweak elements at run time to get the desired layout. Thanks for Flexbox now we have answer to these and many other issues which couldn’t be solved easily with CSS till now.
