CSS Summit Returns for 5th Year

CSS Summit, the online and live conference focused on CSS, celebrates its fifth year this Summer. 

In its first year, the conference luminaries such as Zoe Gillenwater, Stephanie Rewis, Nicole Sullivan, Molly Holschlag, and more were part of the line-up giving their expertise. 

Attendees from all over the world took a chance on cutting edge conference meeting software.

And everyone complained about Internet Explorer.

CSS Summit this year reflects the maturity of web’s design language by stretching out to three days representing three tracks:

  • Day 1 focuses on CSS3
  • Day 2 focuses on Advanced Workflow
  • Day 3 focuses on Sass for CSS Preprocessors

From the start off talk by Web Standardista Estelle Weyl to the last presentation by Happy Cog’s Allison Wagner, over twenty great speakers are taking part… all on your desktop.

The future is pretty amazing. 

But we probably will still complain about Internet Explorer.

Think Responsively

The mobile explosion has changed not just how and where we view the web. This modern web development also means a change our workflow.

Led by Ben Callahan, Think Responsively is a one hour-ish long free online, live seminar that’s happening next week.

It’s about the process and organizational changes needed to allow “responsive thinking” to take root in your organization.

Designers, developers, project and account managers, sales reps, content strategists, information architects—all are welcome as we discuss how to create a collaborative workflow and build for a device independence.

Ben, covers the basics of RWD, new deliverables in the responsive process, and lessons learned from experience implementing responsive projects.

Come with open minds and constructive questions. We’ll make sure there’s plenty of time for discussion!

NOTE: All 200 tickets to the live session got grabbed in about two hours! However, getting on the waiting list gets you access to recordings after the session. 

RWD Summit 2013: Performance, Clients, Trenches

The web doesn’t sit still for a moment. Illustrating just how much has happened in a year, this year’s RWD Summit stretches into a jammed-pack three days this April 16–18.

Performance dominates the first day of the RWD Summit. Before the smart phone and tablet revolution, sites got fat.

One of the main talents a web designer can possess: creating a big impression with the least amount of code. It’s time to get back to our roots by recognizing we don’t always know how fast our sites show up on our visitor’s devices.

The second day is dedicated to strategy. We discuss client management in the more agile development process of RWD, along with new approaches to content strategy and typography.

The third day is for those that are in the trenches: the web builders.

We will be looking at new concepts in building out RWD sites with CSS fractals, how to use Sass and Compass, RWD sidebars, and much more.

If you want to dive into RWD and bring the experts to your desktop, sign up for RWD Summit today.

If you are busy and can’t make it for one or all-three days, don’t worry. All the sessions are recorded and are part of the purchase price. You can catch the sessions later at your own convenience.

See you at the Summit!
