I’m off to @media Europe this week, and looking forward to hearing presentations from some of the best in the business.
Of course there are many excellent events that take place worldwide that I can’t attend, and many presentations I’d love to see. Below are five links to slideshows from events that have taken place this year, which I’ve found interesting even without being able to see them presented.
An overview of Microformats, the benefits they bring to the web, and how Mozilla intends to expose them in future browsers.
Where CSS is now, what we can expect from it in the future, and which CSS 3 declarations you could be using now.
A hands-on primer in grid-based design, with plenty of examples to follow.
Why typography on the web is so poor compared to print, and what you can do to make your text look nicer.
