CSS3/JS Selectors: When HTML5 Has No Class

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Sunday 10th March, 2013

11:00am to 1:30pm (CST)

RSVP Required - Pick an element, any element. Style it. Manipulate it. No IDs. No classes. No jQuery necessary. We'll learn all the new features of selectors tin CSS and JavaScript hat enable you to select this DOM node, that DOM node, and even an imaginary DOM node based on attributes, relation to other elements, location in the DOM, or just an element's mere existence. The possibilities are endless, if you know how to use the tools in your tool box. Today's tool is CSS3 (and JavaScript) selectors.

Knowledge of basic HTML and CSS.
