Web Directions USA slides and resources

I just finished speaking at Web Directions USA on “Effective & Efficient Design with CSS3,” the latest iteration of an the talk I gave at the CSS Summit and ConvergeSE. I talked about how CSS3 is about more than making things look pretty (though it’s really good at that too). Many CSS3 techniques can reduce your development times, decrease page loading times, improve usability, and increase the adaptability of your pages to different devices (including iPads and iPhones). I showed examples of the pieces of CSS3 you can add to your web sites right now and how they might benefit your projects in tangible ways. I included a case study of a real site before and after CSS3, plus an example page built using media queries to improve its appearance and usability at different screen sizes.

You can view the slides on SlideShare, or download the slides here:
