CSS3 introduces a number of exciting new tools and techniques for creating powerful experiences on the web. In this talk, we'll dive into the new features of CSS3 and show how they can be used to build engaging web interfaces with much less effort than before.

This talk will focus on practical applications of new CSS3 features, including:

  • Advanced selectors
  • Background, gradient, and color effects
  • New typography & layout features
  • Animations & transitions
  • 3D transforms & filters

A working knowledge of CSS is recommended.

    I really regret that I have to cancel. I don't feel well at all and was pushing my luck to try to make it. At least someone on the list will be happy.

    Is there a waitlist available? Many meetups can see a 30%-50% drop-off from their original RSVP list...

    September 17, 2013

    • Mehboob A.

      Hi, generally I would agree, but in this case our location is limited to 30, so we are already at overflow. Our first event drew 50+ attendees.

  • Jerome H.

    It says there are 4 spots available, can I still join?

    September 17, 2013

    • Mehboob A.

      Sorry. We are way over-booked for the location. Future event may have more room.

  • Angela W.

    Wouldn't basics be beginning level, not intermediate?
    I know CSS is useful, I just can't tell if you are offering a class or speaking broadly about development. Could more detail be provided at to what the structure of the evening will be? thanks!

    September 13, 2013

    • Mehboob A.

      It's on CSS3, so we will not be covering basic CSS itself, but future directions and tools that help speed up development.

      September 13, 2013

    • Mike P.

      Hi Angela, I've updated the description to with more details. Let me know if you have any additional questions about the talk. Hope to see you there!
