Bringing Your Design to Life with CSS3 by Dan Rubin, October 5th
Designers rejoice! Web Standards are not just for people who care about accessibility and compatibility across devices and platforms anymore: they are fast becoming the core tools of some of the best sites, apps, and experiences on the web; and with the latest browsers including support for all of CSS2.1, much of CSS3, and increasingly, HTML5, designers can now call these tools our friends.
In this full day of practical examples and exercises, Dan will show you how today’s leading sites are using advanced CSS to move some of the visual heavy-lifting to the browsers. We’ll examine live sites, then take them apart to see how their designers are using CSS to implement visual design, and how they degrade in less-than-modern browsers. We’ll also build and test an example design to see just how easy (and practical) it is to incorporate advanced CSS in your designs, taking you from Photoshop to HTML/CSS so you’ll leave with the experience and confidence of having put these capabilities to use.
