Workshop CSS3: Not just for designers by Lea Verou

  • When: Wednesday October 5, 2011
  • Costs: € 350,- (€ 275,- for Fronteers members)

CSS3, in essence, is about creating web applications that download faster and are easier to develop, maintain and edit. Less HTTP requests, less Kilobytes to download, less presentational JavaScript. All those are mostly developer goals, rather than designer goals. And that's why developers should care about CSS3, perhaps even more than designers do.

Starting with the basics, we'll dive deep uncovering the nitty-gritty details of the CSS3 features that help you achieve those goals. You will get the chance to test everything yourself in the process with small, easy to understand examples designed to keep the learning process fun and enjoyable.

What you will learn:

  • How you can integrate CSS3 in your daily workflow to produce better results more quickly
  • How to get rid of external images and when it's wiser to keep them
  • How you can use CSS3 to offload presentational tasks to CSS instead of bloating your JavaScript code
  • How CSS3 interacts with JavaScript, to allow you to do even more
  • How to think about detecting CSS3 feature support and how to create your own fallbacks and polyfills, instead of depending on others to write them for you

No matter your experience with CSS3, you will walk away having learned a ton of new things you can immediately apply to your everyday work. You will also get an exclusive web application where you can experiment with everything taught, even after the workshop has passed.
