Why use CSS Zen Garden for CSS3 demo

Friday, November 6th, 2009

For those who have not seen my Edge of the Web CSS3 demonstration I used the CSS Zen Garden HTML. Why, because I wanted to use somebody else’s HTML, mainly because I wanted to show it works with any HTML and that most people would be familiar with the site.

I will not submit it, because Dave has not accepted any new submissions almost two year, my demo is far from the visual standard of most other design and I broke one major rule the CSS does not validate.

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.

If you wondered why it has been quiet around here lately, I have spent the last two weeks researching and preparing for my presentation at PodCamp Perth 2007.

WebJam Sydney

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

My second WebJam was interesting event. Held after WDS07 on a Saturday evening, in front of a couple hundred people. What was interesting was the line up of speakers. The biggest surprise for me was the limited number of local speakers, there was three international speakers Andy Clarke, Aaron Gustafson and Chaals from Opera, add to that the WA contigent of me and Myles and you had I think 9 locals.

Websledge the improved version

Sue of Mobile Technology in TAFE of has taken my WebJam slide show added audio from Greenguy’s video and combined them to produce a much improved version of my presentation without me bouncing around the stage. The resulting discussion is interesting.

The great websledge

aka the art of the 3 minute presentation

The websledge presentation is on slideshare, it has had a couple of minor additions (ie what I should of added earlier). But it really needs an audio track, because the words are far more important than the slides, plus you miss the cheer from the staff of one web design company when they find the have not been left out. I will let you know if the video goes online.

Creating a 3 minute presentation for WebJam is harder than creating a 30 minute presentation for another event…

I had a visit from our venues coordinator this afternoon, needing a Macbook Pro to VGA connector, I was happy to oblige. This was shortly followed by a phone to help the presenter get the projector to display properly. Arriving at lecture theatre I found…
