  • Mastering CSS3 gradients

    by Lea Verou

    With every browser adding support, and the simplicity of providing fallbacks for older versions, CSS3 gradients are something we can start to use right now.

    They benefit our users with faster websites and ourselves with more time in our hands to spend in other things, since they are easy to create, edit and update. A very powerful feature that can also be utilized for a surprising number of design effects, even ones that don’t resemble gradients at all.

    In this talk, Lea will explore CSS3 gradients in great depth and it’s almost guaranteed that no matter your expertise level, you will walk out having learned new things.

  • CSS3 Transitions and Transforms

    by Greg Rewis

    Since the early days of the web, the only reliable way to get movement on your site was through Flash, or more recently, JavaScript.

    But now, with WebKit and Mozilla leading the way--and Internet Explorer getting into the game--transformations and transitions can be done with pure CSS, even on mobile devices.

    In this session, Greg takes a look at all of the possibilities and explore what works and where--from the simplest effects, to creative usability enhancements including the combination of CSS with Javascript frameworks.

    At 4:00pm to 5:00pm, Tuesday 26th July

  • CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders

    by Stefanie Sullivan Rewis

    As any good Boy Scout will tell you, being prepared for every situation is essential to survival, and as a web designer/developer, survival means knowing what tools to use and when.

    With the evolution of CSS, not only do we have new tools to cut through previous challenges, but our tried and true tools have been honed and sharpened as well.

    Join Stephanie Rewis as she explores some shiny enhancements to favorite old tools like backgrounds and borders, as well as some new tools like CSS masks and CSS Regions.

  • CSS & eCSStender

    by Aaron Gustafson

    Say goodbye to the browser-specific properties and hacks cluttering your files and say hello to lean, mean CSS.

    With eCSStender, when you write the rules, browsers pay attention.
    In this session, Gustafson covers everything you would need to know to get up and running with eCSStender by:

    • demonstrating why we need a tool like eCSStender
    • explaining how eCSStender works
    • showing how painlessly extensions can be implemented; and
    • demonstrating how to build an extension using a little jQuery.

    At 1:00pm to 2:00pm, Wednesday 27th July

  • CSS & Pseudo Elements

    by Chris Coyier

    We'll be talking about a very small part of the the vast canyon of CSS: pseudo elements.

    Essentially, for every element on page, you get two free "elements" you can create through CSS via the :before and :after selectors.

    They are part of CSS2, so the browser support is pretty deep, but the things you can do with them are rather amazing. Since this all happens in the CSS, markup remains clean and uncluttered with non-semantic design-specific markup.

    At 9:00pm to 10:00pm, Wednesday 27th July
