March 2, 2010 - Comments Off on New York Web Standards Meetup—CSS3
The New York Web Standards Meetup will meet 17 March 2010 at reBar at 7:00 pm for "CSS3 and the Death of the Background Image, or Yet Another Talk on Progressive Enhancement (aka Death to IE6/7/Sometimes 8)."
The immense CSS3 proposal (which has been on the W3C's table for years) is now seeing a significant number of draft modules being implemented in browsers and most of these modules are explicitly geared toward reducing our time in Photoshop. In this comprehensive how-to, Marco Carag (TheKnot.com) will run through all the new properties you've been reading about and anticipating, including @font-face, rgba, gradients, drop-shadows, transforms and animation. Using both focused proof-of-concept pages and actual production examples from The Knot and other websites across the web, attendees will see the impact of CSS3 on the average front-end workflow and understand how it improves or affects your users' experience across all browsers.
