Time for Geek Meet May 2011! This time, welcoming a great speaker from Greece!
I’m very happy and proud to present the very talented Lea Verou. Seeing her present and reading and hearing her thoughts, I’m glad to bring someone to Geek Meet who can be so inspiring! Lea will give you an abundance of information and tips and tricks on CSS, so don’t miss this!
Lea will be giving two presentations:
Mastering CSS3 gradients
With most browsers adding increasing support, and the simplicity of providing fallbacks for those that don’t, CSS3 gradients are something we can start to use right now. They benefit our users with faster websites and ourselves with more time in our hands to spend in other things, since they are easy to create, edit and update. A very powerful feature that can also be utilized for a surprising number of design effects, even ones that don’t resemble gradients at all. In this talk, Lea will explore CSS3 gradients in great depth and it’s almost guaranteed that no matter your expertise level, you will walk out having learned new things.
10 things you might not know about CSS3
By now most of you know how to use the popular new CSS3 features in your stylesheets, to embed custom fonts and easily create rounded corners, drop shadows, and scalable designs with media queries. However, below the surface, there are many other things that CSS3 brings and most web developers have never heard of. In this talk Lea will present many CSS3 features that are useful but underrated, as well as uncommon ways of utilizing the CSS3 features you already know about, in order to do much more with even less images and code.
