Is it time to put away our sprites, reduce HTTP requests and not worry about retina display image size? Can we really style pages without including background images, icon pngs and header sprite sheets? I believe it is and we can. Join me while I teach you how to use gradients, text shadows, icon fonts, box shadows and embedded fonts, as well as a few other tricks, for your clients web pages. It's time to use the new and shiny in real life!

"What's your opinion of the people who create internet/email hoaxes?
What's your opinion of the people who create internet/email hoaxes? You know, the people who make up stories that later spread virally across email and Facebook and when you eventually do the research they turn out to be false.
Like the tiger in the zoo nursing the piglets, who were supposedly given to her because she was "depressed" about losing her own cubs. Things like that.
Does it bother you that someone invented a fake story that you fell for?
Or do you think, "who cares, it was a good story anyway even if it was fake"?
Or do you admire them for their creativity in crafting a totally different story from a photo?
Would it make any difference in how you felt if you knew that the hoax had been invented for commercial purposes?"

I did two sessions.
talked through the immutable git objects and how they form a connected graph. Also worked through a simple rebase / merge workflow.
No slides, just me and a flipchart. They look messy, but if you were there they will make sense and I hope that it reminds you of what I was talking about.
