Why learn CSS Layout here?
I’ve been writing about CSS for well over ten years, authoring and co-authoring a large number of books on the subject, including the bestselling CSS Anthology for SitePoint. A book that ran to four editions. I’m in demand on the conference circuit for my talks of modern CSS layout and in the last couple of years have been running full day workshops, teaching layout.
There is a limit to how many workshops I can lead in person each year. I’m also aware that the cost of tickets, hotel rooms, time away from work and travel to these events is prohibitive for many people. I hope that in creating an online version of this material I can help more people really get to grips with CSS Layout.

I’m co-founder of Perch - the really little CMS, and the developer edition Perch Runway. I’ve been working as a web developer since late 1996, and have run my own company since 2001. I’m an open web standards advocate but I’m also a business person. I understand the need to balance doing great work with actually shipping things.
Recent work and projects
Other than Perch and Runway here are some of the things I’ve been working on recently.
