Since 2016, I’ve been passionately sharing my knowledge with other people. My speaking engagements have taken me to various events, primarily WordPress meetups and WordCamps. While I’m most comfortable conversing in my native language, German, I’ve also had the pleasure of delivering talks in English. You can explore these presentations below, and a comprehensive list of my German talks can be accessed on my dedicated German website.

I’m readily available for connections, whether it’s through email or my social networks (linked at the bottom of the page). If you’re seeking a speaker for your upcoming event, don’t hesitate to get in touch. My speaking repertoire revolves around a variety of engaging topics, with a primary focus on CSS, the Block Editor, and the art of Performance Optimization.

    How Subgrid enhances CSS Grid

    CSS Grid has been around for over two years in major browsers. While it’s amazing to work with, there’s still room for improvement. Currently, only direct child elements of a container can be placed with CSS Grid.

    With Subgrid, you can bring the defined grid another level down. This enhances the feature of CSS Grid even further. In this talk, I want to show you the possibilities that Subgrid creates.

    CSS Grid in the wild

    Since CSS Grid was introduced in modern browsers in 2017, developers finally are able to create complex layouts with less code. CSS Grid works a bit differently than the CSS frameworks developers are used to, so there’s a learning curve to get it. In this talk I want to show some examples how to use CSS Grid on websites, including either support or fallback layouts for Internet Explorer 10 and 11. Because this shouldn’t be an excuse anymore not to use CSS Grid today!
