Participating and Speaking: Codemotion Amsterdam
The previous week I spent in Amsterdam where was glad to be invited to speak at Codemotion Amsterdam conference. The weather appeared to be nice and warm which made the event even better.
It took place at the huge building near the IJ river (so-called Amsterdam bay).
My talk started from the description of the current state of the CSS Custom Properties and summarized all the information and examples regarding the CSS Custom Properties which had been recently described in my article on SmashingMagazine.
It was a great experience, except we missed with the technical crew to connect the internet via wire. So after 5-10 minutes since I started it went down and took some time till guys found a connector from a wire cable to Mac. As a good guy, I prepared offline versions of the slides and demos, which helped till we switched back online, which gave more ability to show to the audience the interactive examples with live editing via Codepen.
There was a bunch of other good talks, I’ll describe here some more Front-End specific:
In the end
It was a pleasure to speak at Codemotion, meet old good friends there and have a great evening walking at the wonderful Amsterdam city center.
In a week I’ll present this talk in Athens at Frontend United- everyone is welcome and I’d be delighted to answer any of your question. And it’s always a good idea to enjoy the perfect Greek food and weather!
And if you need a suggestion what to try in Amsterdam, start from the local herring (with/without a sandwich)- it’s unexpectedly delicious!
