From layers and specificity to nesting, from HD color to (scroll) animations. If there is one thing that makes me keep using Chrome as my default browser while developing, it has to be the DevTools and the information we can find about them. As we’re slowly entering the last part of the year, I thought a cool roundup of new CSS debugging tools would be a great article.

Hi, my name is Brecht, Front-end developer
I'm a self-taught front-end developer and Google Developer Expert located in Belgium with a passion for UX and Design. After more than a decade working in tech, I decided to start a little blog for documenting my findings about HTML, CSS and JS with an eye on accessibility and UX.
During the day, you can find me working at iO on a variety of projects. There are a lot of environments I'm working in, the majority of them being Twig or React. But my real niche will always be semantics and CSS, especially now, with the ever fast updates in browser support. It's a great time to be a front-end developer.

What I write about...
Belgium and its beauty
Passionate about photography
One of my hobbies is nature/landscape photography. When my beautiful baby girl was born, there wasn't much time to travel the world and so I started to shoot landscapes in Belgium. It gave me a sense that nature's beauty can be closer than you might think.
Most of the images are near my hometown Deinze. A small city famous for its cycling near the Lys river. I added some photos on this website as sort of a "hobby corner". I will update them from time to time, but you can follow my Instagram for latest images.
