1. In a fast-paced hour of design ideas and techniques, learn how advanced CSS and CSS3 can add richness to your site’s experience layer, and discover the role CSS3 can play in enhancing interactivity.

    Captured on video and shown here for the first time is Dan Cederholm's 2010 presentation at An Event Apart. It's the seed that gave birth to Dan's best-selling book, CSS3 For Web Designers.

    Dan Cederholm is a web designer and author living in Massachusetts. He is the founder of SimpleBits, a tiny design studio, and co-founder of Dribbble, a design community.

    Dan is the author of four best-selling books: CSS3 For Web Designers (A Book Apart), Bulletproof Web Design 3rd Edition (New Riders), Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design with Ethan Marcotte (New Riders), and Web Standards Solutions (Apress/Friends of ED).

    A recognized expert in the field of standards-based web design, Dan co-founded the wine community site, Cork’d and has worked with Google, MTV, ESPN, Fast Company, Blogger, Odeo (and others), also collaborating with Happy Cog on selected projects. He embraces flexible, adaptable design using web standards through his client work, writing, and speaking.

    Dan also runs a popular blog where he writes articles and commentary on the web, technology and life. And he plays a mean ukulele.

  2. By now most of you know how to use the popular new CSS3 features in your stylesheets, like embedding custom fonts or creating rounded corners, drop shadows, and scalable designs with media queries. However, below the surface, there are many other things that CSS3 brings and most web developers have never heard of. In this talk Lea will present many CSS3 features that are useful but underrated, as well as uncommon ways of utilizing the CSS3 features you already know about, in order to do much more with even less images and code.

    We're one of the world's most technically inclined, connected and creative industries, but we've lost a great deal of our sense of self expression within the craft. Let's figure out how we can get that desire back and band together to great experiences purely for the same reason we started creating things in the first place - because we have to.

    We face a challenge: to ensure our design responses are informed more by our thinking than the tools we use. Absorbed by day-to-day execution, we can forget the importance of mistakes and accidents — of balancing intent with experimentation. Failure is valuable, provided we're mindful of why. Embrace the unpredictable nature of everything, and stay mindful. It's how we lace our actions with meaning.
