Tables have their place, now let’s make them fit

Tables have gotten a bad reputation over the years. Historically, we used them for layout, a practice thoroughly frowned upon today. When responsive and fluid layouts came into the scene, they proved difficult to work with. As a result, we have shied away from them but it doesn’t have to be this way. In this talk we will go over:
- When to use tables, and when not too
- Techniques to make them work on mobile screen
- Accessibility considerations
- Alternate layout options when a table is not the correct option
