What's the preferred unit in CSS for responsive design?

Obviously, it's %. What a stupid question? Well, you can sometimes use em maybe. Or, maybe vh/vw.  Well, anything except for px for sure.

Sadly, the answer isn't as simple as that. In fact, there is no proper answer to that question and depends a lot on the design decisions taken rather than a fixed rule of making websites responsive. Funny thing is, many times you might actually want to use px instead of % because the later is going to mess things up. In this blog, I will try to describe some scenario's when each of the units work better in a responsive environment.

PS: All of this is mostly my personal opinion and working experience. Not to be mistaken as a rule book.

FOSSASIA 2018: Conference Report

FOSSASIA 2018 was my 2nd FOSSASIA conference and this year it was at a new venue (Lifelong Learning Institute), and for a longer time. As always, there were a lot of speakers and a lot of really exciting sessions. Last year I was a little confused, so this year I planned earlier which all talks to attend and what all to do.
