Ahoy, front-end pirates! Today I’m starting a saga about the front-end development of the site of the 2012 edition of the From the Front conference which took place in Bologna, Italy on September the 20th.
Googling respond.js vs css3-mediaqueries.js I’ve found Techniques For Gracefully Degrading Media Queries, a Smashing Magazine post about Lewis Nyman which talks about how to apply the graceful degradation of media queries on browsers that don’t support them (IE 8, IE 7, IE 6).
On Saturday, November 24th 2012, I spoke again about web design at the event Wordcamp Bologna.
On Tuesday, October the 30st, 2012, at 18:30, I’m speaking again about when, why and how to use CSS 3 transitions and animations, and when and how to apply the fallback animation with jQuery.
I heard that Firefox 16 unprefixed CSS 3 transitions, animations and gradients, so I wanted to give it a try. In short, it’s true: starting from October 9th, no more -webkit- prefix in transition, animation, @keyframes and linear-gradient.
If you are a front-end developer and make mobile websites / mobile web apps, you know that debugging on mobile devices is a pain.
We used GIF images to create animations for years, but they aren’t pretty to be used over gradients or pictures (no alpha channel, no anti-aliasing) of which modern web sites are full. There are many workarounds to animate PNG images instead, but…
I developed the piratesque website for the 2012 edition of the conference From the Front, titled The Treasure of Frontend Island.
20 minutes speech about why and how to use CSS 3 transitions and animations, which work in all modern browsers (Internet Explorer 10, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera), and when and how implement a fallback animation or transition with jQuery.
CSSOff is a competition for front-end developers to show off their skills in a no holds barred display of CSS and markup skills.
