"Supporting Middle-Out in CSS" - by Chris Burnell @iamchrisburnell
We’re used to hearing about and involving ourselves in methodologies like "Mobile First" when we write CSS, and more specifically, Media Queries. While these methodologies help to keep our CSS consistent, sometimes we get so obsessed with following our pre-defined tracks that what we’re really trying to accomplish becomes muddled. So how can we write media queries that are both consistent and succinct?
Chris is a Front-End Developer at City University London with a ravenous appetite for CSS, sated only by lean, mean, cascading... stylesheets. He tweets at @iamchrisburnell.
