In this panel, you will get to ask questions and be informed about the state of CSS, where we are at, what is pending, what we can look forward to, to some of the working group members who are hard at work to implement the various specs.
We will also be discussing the support for CSS4 specifications, what we can expect in the future and how it will be useful for web developers and designers. Here is your chance to ask the experts and implementors at the cutting edge of CSS on what to expect and how to use the new technologies now.
In this one hour tutorial workshop, you will become skilled in CSS3 selectors, transforms, transitions and animations. We will work through an animation examples, creating different paths, timing and effects, exploring linear gradients opacity, alpha transparency, border-radius, text-shadows, transforms, transitions and mostly animations. The code example will be provided participants can play with the code, going from novice to skilled without heavy note taking.

Haakon Wium Lie worked with Tim Berners-Lee at CERN when CSS was conceived in 1994. His last name does not build confidence, but CSS has – after a rough start during the first browser wars – become a cornerstone of the web. CSS3 introduces features that designers have been asking for and this presentation will go through parts of CSS3 that can be used in common browsers today. For example, Media Queries will adapt presentations to any device, Webfonts will change the face of the web, and multi-column layouts will make better use of wide screens. Also, this presentation will describe how it is possible to use CSS3 to create books and other paged presentations from common HTML content, both on screen and on paper.
