CSS3: More Than Just Rounded Corners by Josh Netherton

When people started talking about CSS3, properties like border-radius and text-shadow seemed to get all the attention. But with a wide variety of new selectors, pseudo elements and properties, CSS3 has a whole lot more. We’ll hit on some of the basics and then delve into some of the more advanced aspects, like using web fonts and :nth-child (whoo hoo) and creating gradients and animations.

HTML5 Multimedia with Bruce Lawson

HTML5 Multimedia with Bruce Lawson

A much-hyped feature of HTML5 is native multimedia. In this session we’ll look at embedding multimedia into your pages, and how to make it work cross-browser and degrade gracefully in older browsers. Sound too good to be true? It’s not!

We’ll look at the pros and the cons of HTML5 multimedia and see how to write controls with JavaScript and CSS. We’ll also look at how HTML5 builds in support for subtitles and captions for multimedia accessibility. We’ll build up a working example, and look at what’s coming just around the corner in HTML.next – and you might pick up a Turkish dancing tip on the way.

What is Google+ and do I need it?

What is Google+ and do I need it?

Google Plus is Google’s new social network. But why start a Google Plus account when you already have a Facebook account? Well, Facebook was developed on the premise that everyone is your “friend” which isn’t how your social circles work in real life. Google plus is built so that you can intuitively break up all your connections into “circles” and treat each circle separately. (Facebook allows you to do some of the same things but the privacy settings are confusing and constantly changing.)

Google Plus has a lot of slick features, but the biggest reason to open a Google Plus account is that if you use a lot of Google products you will inevitably get one some day.
