Tommy Hodgins is a Toronto-based frontend developer and designer specializing in responsive web design. He co-founded the EQCSS project and actively participates in discussion surrounding element queries, container queries, and scoped CSS. In his spare time, he enjoys illustrating new tools and concepts on Codepen, teaching HTML/CSS through local talks and workshops, and playing code golf with friends near and far.
For some time, we’ve run up against the limits of what CSS can do. Those who build responsive layouts will freely admit the frustrations and shortcomings of CSS that force us to reach for CSS preprocessors, plugins and other tools to help us write the styles that we’re unable to write with CSS alone. Even still, we run into limitations with what current tools help us accomplish.
