Eric A. Meyer has been working with the web since late 1993 and is an internationally recognized expert on the subjects of HTML, CSS, and web standards. A widely read author, he is technical lead at Rebecca’s Gift, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing healing family vacations after the death of a child; and is, along with Jeffrey Zeldman, co-founder of An Event Apart.
Eric Meyer joins us to talk about An Event Apart's 2020 season, subgrid shipping, the rumored rewrite of Chrome's engine, where HTML and CSS are headed, browser development, developing for giant screens and giant browser windows, and whatever happened to CSS 3?
If you can host a site for yourself, a friend, or a client on WordPress.com, you should. Not only is WordPress powerful, flexible and easy to use (to the tune of powering a third of the internet), using WordPress.com means never having to worry about dealing with servers and software yourself.
Watching the HTTP requests server-side also lets you track 404 errors to give valuable insight into where your visitors might be falling off your happy path. And although Netlify Analytics runs server-side, you needn’t worry about implementing or maintaining software or configuration yourself. We handle all of that for you on our infrastructure.
All you need to do is enable it.
