Session description

This session will be a solid introduction to CSS3 by way of practical examples that can get you started using CSS3 on your projects today.

Rachel Andrew will take you through some of the core features of CSS3 including advanced selectors, media queries and other features that are being developed and starting to be implemented in browsers.

In addition to discovering how CSS3 will change the way that we develop in the future we will explore current and upcoming browser support. We will also see how it is possible to start using some of CSS3 in your projects now, with the help of a little JavaScript to plug the holes in current browsers.
