That about wraps it up for me. Thanks everyone, I had a great time answering all of your questions. If you have any more, feel free to contact me on Twitter (@markdalgleish) 👋😄
Hi Mark, I am super curious to know about the tech scene in Melbourne (and Australia in general). Could you please tell us a little bit about it?
Normally the chatter is all about what goes in the Valley, but booming tech centers like Berlin and Copenhagen can't be overlooked anymore. We can change the world from anywhere and I've come to the conclusion it's not always about what goes on in the Valley or Seattle, so to speak. How does Australia fit into the scheme of things?
I am a huge fan of Cricket and most things I know about Australia through cricket. I would love to hear about Australia from the whole tech perspective.
Now that we're seeing things like the CSS Grid become native, let's jump a few years into the future.
Let's say that CSS4 is being released in a month... what would you like to see it be able to do? Also, do you think that a pre-processor like Sass should become native to it since it adds a great deal of functionality in terms of variables, mixins, conditionals, etc.?
I am very fascinated by good designs and I have a fair understanding of what is good and what is not. But when we talk about creating one from scratch I go all blank. I am good with my programming skills but haven't been able to do much in this sphere. How would you suggest me go about this? I want to improve and be able to come up with a good design when required.
Do you know about and ever tried Atomizer from Yahoo? https://github.com/acss-io/atomizer/blob/master/README.md
