Topics:

Web Standards shouldn't just be for people who care about accessibility and compatibility across devices and platforms. Standards are quickly becoming the core tools of some of the best sites, apps, and experiences on the web. The latest browsers are now supporting all of CSS2.1, much of CSS3, and increasingly, HTML5, designers can now call these tools our friends.

Using practical examples and exercises, Dan will show you how today’s leading sites are using advanced CSS to move some of the visual heavy-lifting to the browsers. We’ll examine live sites, then take them apart to see how their designers are using CSS to implement visual design, and how they degrade in less-than-modern browsers. We’ll also build an example design to see just how easy (and practical) it is to incorporate advanced CSS in your designs, so you’ll leave with the confidence to put these capabilities to use right away.

This seminar is perfect for you if you are a designer or developer already familiar with basic web standards (HTML/CSS) and ready to start including more advanced CSS in your projects.
