A refreshed Speaking page

I’ve updat­ed my Speak­ing page to include more con­fer­ences, more videos, and a lit­tle on my speak­ing require­ments and pref­er­ences. I’m plan­ning to cut down on the num­ber of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to inter­est­ing offers and oppor­tu­ni­ties, so please get in touch if you’re organ­is­ing an event.


40% off when you pre-order The Modern Web

I’m very excit­ed to be hold­ing a copy of my new book, The Mod­ern Web, in my hands, and ner­vous to see what every­one else thinks when it goes on sale next week. If you’d like a copy you can get a whop­ping 40% off when you pre-order through the pub­lish­er in the next week — plus every print copy comes with a FREE eBook. I hope you’ll con­sid­er pre-order­ing, and look for­ward (guard­ed­ly!) to hear­ing what you think.


Opening up the media channels

To make it eas­i­er to get access to the posts I write here I’ve recent­ly set up pages on Face­book and Google+. I won’t beg you for a Like or +1, but if you’re feel­ing generous…

Of course, you can still sub­scribe to the RSS feed, or fol­low me on Twit­ter.


Opera Ice and Branch

Two things hap­pened last week: news leaked that Opera are plan­ning to launch a new brows­er based on WebKit; and the new dis­cus­sion tool, Branch, came out of pri­vate beta. As an exper­i­ment, I want to talk about the first on the sec­ond, so I invite you to read and par­tic­i­pate in my branch Opera Ice: New brows­er for Android and iPhone com­ing Feb­rua….


A cover feature in .net, and a plea for help

The lat­est issue of .net Mag­a­zine has a cov­er fea­ture on the future of CSS lay­outs, writ­ten by me. It’s a snap­shot of the cur­rent sta­tus of the many CSS mod­ules relat­ed to lay­out, updat­ing the arti­cle of the same title I wrote for netmagazine.com in August 2011.

I’ve sent in a pro­pos­al to talk about CSS lay­outs at this year’s CSS Dev Conf, and would real­ly appre­ci­ate a vote for my talk to be select­ed. The num­bers of the talks are anonymised and ran­domised for each vis­i­tor, but mine is in the Cut­ting Edge ses­sions page, and is called A Triv­ial Shift: The CSS Lay­out Rev­o­lu­tion. If you could vote for that, and for me as a speak­er on the last page, I would be extreme­ly grate­ful. I feel bad for ask­ing, to be hon­est, but it looks like a great con­fer­ence and I’d love to speak there.

Oh, also, a tuto­r­i­al I wrote for a recent issue of .net has now been made avail­able online: Chain CSS ani­ma­tions togeth­er with JavaScript.


Smashing Magazine CSS3 eBook

My arti­cle Adven­tures in the Third Dimen­sion, pub­lished by Smash­ing Mag­a­zine ear­li­er this year, is now avail­able in one of the col­lect­ed Smash­ing eBooks; buy Mas­ter­ing CSS3 for $4.99, or get the whole Cod­ing Bun­dle of five eBooks for $21.90.
