We also explore prompt engineering and include practical tips for front-end developers on how to get the most out of the AI tools that are out there at the moment (e.g. ChatGPT, GitHub Copilot, and Cody) to augment your work, putting AI in its rightful place as a copilot, not a replacement.
The past few years have brought us a tonne of new CSS features to help solve common layout challenges. In this session, we’ll delve into some real-world use cases for new features like container queries and the :has() pseudo class.
We’ll explore how to combine these with more familiar features in order to build robust, flexible and creative layouts that respond to both content and context, and take a peek into the near future to see what’s coming next for CSS layout.
Visual design can seem daunting and can often be gatekept as something “you’re just born with” but in reality it's something that can be taught. As we move into a future of more iterative and fast-pace processes, being able to communicate and work together in a way where product managers, designers and developers understand one another is key.
In this talk, I flip the question “should designers learn to code?” and instead answer the question “why should developers learn about design?”, diving into the advantages of learning user experience and visual design basics to make you a better developer and team member and level up your career.
Pixel Pioneers Bristol takes place right at the harbourside in the heart of the city. We've put together a little guide to our venues, places to stay and eat, and other great things to see in Bristol.
The M Shed, a former 1950s transit shed, is a cultural landmark and now museum telling the story of the city and its unique place in the world. Bristol Temple Meads train station is only a short walk away, and there are also two small carparks nearby.
All prices include 20% VAT.

Without the stellar support of our partners, it wouldn’t be possible to run these events, and even if it was, the experience just wouldn’t be the same. If you’re interested in getting involved, just drop us an email and we’ll discuss how we can team up.
