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.

I attended a few more presentations on the CSS power at the camp:

Shkrubbel, using web technologies to build a multi-player word game, by Kitt Hodsden. Kitt is a vivacious speaker.

The Future of CSS - Current Experiments and Near-Future Reality, by Tab Atkins. Tab has advanced knowledge of what is happening in the W3C CSS community, because he is a member of the W3C CSS Working Group, among others, while being a software engineer at Google.

Open Web Camp attracts a good community of web developers, thanks to its sponsors for free admission.
