Media queries presentation at indieconf

Download the slides for my presentation on CSS3: Using Media Queries to Improve the Web Site Experience for indieconf, as well as get links to related resources on media query techniques, tools, and inspiration.

Today I had the pleasure of speaking at indieconf, a conference for independent web developers and designers, right here in my backyard of Raleigh, NC. I talked about the basics of CSS3 media query syntax but focused on the challenges and considerations that go into building a site from scratch with media queries to power the layout. I used the fictional Little Pea Bakery site from my book Stunning CSS3 as a demo for how to adapt the CSS to make better use of the space at different viewport widths. I covered some tips for making your design work on mobile devices and even old versions of IE.

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