CSS is the often unsung hero of Web development. For nearly quarter of a century it’s added color, typography, layout, and more to the web. In that time it’s gone from a straightforward language, to a complex set of capabilities, quite a few of which are little understood.
Many web development conferences cover CSS as part of a mix. But few are really dedicated to the langage alone. Hover will be exclusively focused on CSS–the conference CSS deserves.
Who’s it for?
If you build front ends, hover is for you.
In depth knowledge
All Web Directions conferences feature in-depth knowledge from real world experts. Some you’ll know, many you won’t, but all bring a world of experience and knowledge.
For hover we’re focussing on CSS. Web Directions conferences have always focussed on technologies and practices rather than specific solutions (frameworks and libraries, commercial or open source.)
Topics to focus on
Some of the topics we feel will make for relevant, valuable presentations at hover include
Current CSS technologies that are under utilised, less widely understood or adopted Emerging technologies that have impact now, and whose importance will only increase
It’s not just the technologies that matter it’s what we do with them. So we’re also keen on sessions on typography, layout, animation–all the interesting things CSS enables.
And while we’re at it, we don’t care what anyone says, CSS is also programming, so we’re keen on presentations that address challenges we face when using the language-debugging, improving performance, architectures and more.
