Smashing Conference Workshop: Lea Verou on "Mastering CSS Workshop" (March 17th 2014)

Quick Overview

When using CSS properly, we can create robust, powerful and bulletproof Web applications that load faster and are easier to develop, maintain and edit. Less HTTP requests, less Kbytes to download, less presentational JavaScript. All those are mostly developer goals, rather than design goals. And that's why developers should care about CSS, perhaps even more than designers do.

Full Product Description

Starting with the basics, we'll dive deep uncovering the nitty-gritty details of the CSS features, techniques, clever tips and tricks that will help you achieve all 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'll learn in this workshop:
  • How you can integrate into your daily workflow CSS 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 CSS to offload tasks to presentational CSS instead of bloating your JavaScript code.
  • How CSS 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, or instead depending on others to write them for you.

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