CSS3 and the Death of the Background Image,

  • March 17, 2010 · 7:00 PM

or Yet Another Talk on Progressive Enhancement (aka Death to IE6/7/Sometimes 8)

The immense CSS3 proposal (which has been on the W3C's table for years) is now seeing a significant number of draft modules being implemented in browsers and most of these modules are explicitly geared toward reducing our time in Photoshop. In this comprehensive how-to, Marco Carag (TheKnot.com) will run through all the new properties you've been reading about and anticipating, including @font-face, rgba, gradients, drop-shadows, transforms and animation. Using both focused proof-of-concept pages and actual production examples from The Knot and other websites, attendees will see the impact of CSS3 on the average front-end workflow and understand how it improves or affects your users' experience across all browsers.

    <IFailAtCopyEditing>Sorry about that, Marco! Looks like I'll have to wrap myself with that tag as well. The description now reads, "and actual production examples from The Knot and other websites."</IFailAtCopyEditing>

    I like how I said I'll be using "other websites across the web." No non-web websites for this meetup, nosiree. </IFailAtCopyEditing>
