Session description

Being a CSS expert is about more than just memorizing selectors.

This session will look at pushing the limits of CSS to create stunning interfaces using clean, meaningful markup. We’ll also look at CSS 3 and at what the future of Web design could look like when CSS 3 finally becomes mainstream.

    Interesting concept, but when you hear the audio, she sounded very unprofessional and annoying. She needs to stop drinking water during the presentation and hitting the mike every 10 seconds!
