The Power of CSS (at the Open Web Camp, 2011).

If you are a novice to CSS, you will like this presentation by Estelle Weyl, which I attended yesterday at the Open Web Camp, 2011. If, on the other hand, you know a little of CSS, you'll love this presentation!

In this presentation, you can learn how to produce nice animation effects, such as producing snow any time you want! This use of CSS, as opposed to an equivalent JavaScript code, shows the power of declarative programming, in comparison with its companion, procedural programming.
