A session at php|tek 2012

Thursday 24th May, 2012

11:30am to 12:30pm (CST)

CSS has been the Achilles Heel for many developers in their web development career. Even if we are not the designers, many times we break what the designers give us. Ultimately, you’re left with visual bugs that can do not make any sense In this presentation, we’ll visually demonstrate the commonly misunderstood core principles in CSS and the usual pitfalls we run into. We’ll show how to fix these pitfalls, and help you understand why they happen. After this presentation, you will have a much better understanding of CSS, know the tools to use to debug it, and the resources to help you along the way. You’ll not only have an awesome website under-the-hood, but a good looking one too.
