Get stylish with CSS3

The first standards.next of 2011! On this leg of our journey, we present to you an evening of talks about CSS3, to get you excited about the new features of CSS3, clued up on what you can do with it, and inspired to make more use of it in your own projects.

  • We’ll have Opera good ol’ boy Chris Mills giving an introduction to the whole night, and talking about some of the new selectors and other time saving features of CSS3.
  • Scouse web warrior Jake Smith from JP74 will then take the stage and give you the lowdown on CSS3 web fonts and other interesting bits and pieces that make typography on the web more powerful.
  • Opera agitator Patrick H. Lauke will then move things to a different gear, looking at CSS3 features such as media queries, which allow you more easily create responsive layouts that adapt to different viewing devices.
  • And we’ll round the night off with the mighty Mike Byrne from Fudge, who will unveil some exciting techniques for creating better, more responsive UIs using CSS3 animation, transitions, transparency, and more.

Bring your laptop and code along, or just sit back, listen, and enjoy a cuppa on us. Make sure to stick around afterwards for a few well-deserved drinks at Common across the road.

As always, it’s free for all to attend, but places are limited. To sign up

Due to popular demand, the last standards>next session on the 29 September – which featured the dynamic duo of Bruce Lawson and Patrick H. Lauke from Opera‘s Developer Relations team – will be repeated.

This time, Patrick will be joined by the mighty Chris Mills on a whirlwind tour of HTML5. No hype, no lengthy theoretical discussions – 2 hours of live coding demonstrations (look out for the hilarious typos) that will take you from the basics of some of the new structural elements and the bizarre new world of the outline algorithm right to the fancy new features like native audio/video and canvas.

Bring your laptop and code along, or just sit back and let Chris and Patrick show you how you can start to leverage some of the new features and functionalities of HTML5. And make sure to stick around for a few well-deserved drinks at Common across the road.

This event is run in association with Fly the Coop and Speak the Web, and kindly hosted byMadLab. As always, it’s free for all to attend, but places are limited.
