Announcing the CSS Summit

The AIGA In Control Web Design Workshop Conference is about a week away. We’re gearing up to have an awesome time covering the basics of Web design development with some of the industry leaders.

If you can’t make it to Cincinnati for In Control, I’m pleased to announce the CSS Summit.

CSS Summit’s goal is to examine a component of Web design and explore it’s many facets that makes it such a compelling and, yes, frustrating technology to use. 

Quite frankly, if you interact with CSS for your job, this is the conference for you.

In the CSS Summit we have some amazing speakers like Molly E. Holzschlag, Stephanie Sullivan, Kimberly Blessing, Jason Cranford Teague, Dave McFarland, Zoe Gillenwater and even this guy named Christopher Schmitt. 

We have a wide-range of topics: 

  • Future CSS and Markup
  • Troubleshooting IE6
  • CSS3
  • Coding Layouts
  • Web Typography
  • Web Form Elements
  • Flexible Layouts

The CSS Summit will take place online Saturday, July 18 from 9 a.m. to 5p.m ET. 

Oh, and the whole thing is being done online. That’s right! No need to book plane tickets or expensive hotels. We’re coming to a computer near you. 

So, that’s eight hours of CSS to help you become a CSS ninja all for the very affordable price of $139. (You can even get a $25 off that price by using my discount code, CSSCHRISS.)

Hope to see you there! 

One thought on “Announcing the CSS Summit

  1. I found out about the CSS summit too late to participate, but I would like to add my two cents here if you don’t mind.

    I recently found out about the Less CSS Ruby gem, and it occurred to me that the features Less has are simple enough that they ought to be in CSS itself.

    Take a look at the features of less, and you’ll see what I mean:

    Less adds variables for style values, variables for entire blocks of styles (mixins), nested rules, and operations. These add an enormous amount of functionality and simplifies the organization of CSS code without being so complex that the typical CSS coder wouldn’t be able to figure it out. I contend that CSS’s lack of variables ends up making CSS more difficult than Less’s additional rules.
