CSS3 presentations at EOTW09 and WebJam11

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

I really enjoyed developing my presentation for Edge of the Web. The research and experimentation was a lot of fun. Explore the demo using CSS Zen Garden HTML and seriously try it in IE6, the WebJam presentation with some even more outrageous transitions needs Safari4 or FF3.7 and a little exploring with a mouse.

What I learnt is enough from probably a dozen blog posts, so hopefully I will be writing lot in the next few weeks.

I am on the Edge of the Web

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Well I am speaking at the Edge of the Web Conference in Perth in November. The title Progressive Enhancement with CSS: Or how I stopped worrying about IE6 and starting loving CSS3.

The aim is to show how you can use CSS2 and CSS3 to improve the experience of visitors using modern browsers, while not blocking access to those people still using older browsers like IE6 …

Web Directions North

web directions north link to site

You will see some advertising for Web Directions North around this blog, the reason is that one lucky person who promotes WDN08 on their site will win a free ticket to WDN08, accommodation and airfares. Seeing I hope to go to SXSW this time, winning this is the only way I get to Vancouver next year.

OK I have done the commercial disclosure bit, so why am I interested in going, well in addition to the fun socializing bit, in the speaker lineup we have Jeffrey Zeldman and Tara Hunt. I just want to see Zeldman speak. Tara delivered a really interesting keynote presentation …

PodCamp Perth 2007

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

I came, I saw, I learnt, I presented and throughly enjoyed myself, even if over too quickly.

The most surprising thing, was that while the first PodCamp in Australia was supposed to of been organized by Adam Purcell and Jared Madden. I met them early in the day, but they disappeared into the crowd and did not even present. The organizing of PodCamp Perth 2007 seemed to be handled by Bronwen (of PerthNorg fame) and Simone (of EnjoyPerth fame), with the help of a large number of Perth people.
