Rachel Nabors: Animation Studio Power Techniques with CSS

Award winning cartoonist turned front-end developer Rachel Nabors will change how you think about web design forever. Learn how to make CSS do backflips to reproduce traditional animation techniques like walk cycles, scene transitions, and parallax. Save time and energy with conservative techniques like cut outs, pioneered by Japanese studios to accelerate the animation process. Understand the physics behind timing functions like ease-in to create subtle skeuomorphism. CSS animations and transitions are powerful new tools in the interactive design arsenal. With these babies at your command, all new possibilities for user experiences begin to unfold.

Peter Gasston: Future CSS in Web Components

Web Components are set to revolutionise the way we create web pages, and a key role in that revolution will be played by CSS. Scoped styles and variables are vital to the reusability of content modules which Web Components bring, while more advanced proposals even allow the application of markup through style… This talk will introduce the core features of the future web – templates, custom elements and Shadow DOM – with a strong emphasis on new and repurposed CSS properties and capabilities.
