Speaking Sessions

  • Select This! (CSS3 selectors)

    9:45 AM Saturday   Room: 8403
    Pick an element, any element. Style it. No IDs. No classes. No jQuery necessary. We’ll learn all the new features of CSS3 selectors that enable you to select this DOM node, that DOM node, and even imaginary DOM nodes based on attributes, relation to other elements, location in the DOM, or just an element’s mere existence.
