Presentation: CSS Takes Over the World

I was at Adobe MAX this week, where we got to see all of the new and exciting things coming from Adobe.

I got to present my talk on CSS twice and, as promised, here are my slides from that:

Really great presentation — I never even considered some of the things you talked about!

The form validation is really interesting - what's the browser support like?

Jonathan Snook said on October 08, 2011

Melanie, pretty much all the current browsers, except IE, have support. IE10 is expected to have it.

Looks like an interesting presentation, any chance of a video accompanying the slides?

Jonathan Snook said on October 08, 2011

John Reindoer: There won't be video but there may be audio. Not sure if it'll be public, though. It's supposed to be posted to the Adobe MAX web site at some point.

Great Presentations. It is filled with some great ideas. It shows great hits and tips to keep code clean and maximizes a sites potential with the minimum effort. The presentation slides on their own seem to be a great help but I can imagine the full presentation was 10 times as good.

Thanks for posting this, I was looking for it on the Adobe Max site and hadn't seen it yet.

Nice, however I find using JQuery for drop down menus to be increasingly a thing of the past with pure CSS methods to not only do the drop downs but in cases of CSS3 you can even animate the drop downs.

I created a menu that works from IE 6 all the way to the newest browsers and for those with CSS3 support they have nice rounded corners, gradients and Transition events for the menu opening and closing...all CSS with no JS or JQ.

Great read overall though and nice presentation. I enjoy the throwback wrestlers.

@Brandonondesign: that was really the point of the presentation. All of the examples are things that used to be done with JavaScript but are slowly being replaced with being done in CSS.

brandondesign said on November 14, 2011

@jonathan Yeah great job with that, just pointing out that its now possibly do it 100% without JS or jQ. (which I didn't see for drop down menus unless I missed it)

Really can't wait for all CSS3 to be supported by all major browsers (also to remove the -moz and -webkit prefixes). This really is an exciting time to be a web designer. I still remember using that crazy java on a simple hover image...
