Having earned computer science degree from Iowa State University and worked for leading tech brands like Microsoft, Cassidy Williams (opens in new tab) now works as head of developer voice programs at Amazon. She’s been recognised in LinkedIn's Top Professionals 35 & Under and Glamour Magazine's 35 Women Under 35 Changing the Tech Industry.

As Cassidy explores in her talk Creating Art with CSS (opens in new tab), graphics in CSS exist at a nexus between designers’ and front-end developers’ skill sets. Exploring how to create art can improve your CSS skills, enhance your workflow and help you get a better a handle on how design is structured. In her talk, Cassidy will explore graphics from the point of view of a developer and how to build them in CSS, not only covering technique but also live-coding some CSS art.
