Let’s talk CSS

cssIt is official now, the CSS Workinggroup dropped the 3 out of CSS3.

CSS is not just one product, it is a collection of separate modules which can live independent from each other.

Therefore new modules can be added without creating a new CSS version.

So the time has come to drop the 3 and just talk about CSS. If you want to have an overview of all CSS features click on the CSS WG link here.

Visug day

As some of you might know (and if you don’t, you know it now), I’m a VISUG board member since a few months. My job will be helping Gill Cleeren and Pieter Gheysens with organizing events and stuff like that.

One of the cool things that I could help with is the organization of VISUGDAY.

“Visug is celebrating its 7th anniversary. We thought it would be a great idea to organize our first conference. Tada, Visug Day is born. Internationally renowned speakers are joining us for 3 tracks of deep-dive training. The only thing that’s standing between you and a fully-equipped brain is that register button. Go ahead, click it and mark April 17 in your agenda!”

As a web developer I’m very glad to see that there is a track on HTML and things that are going on on the web.

  • A lap around WinJs
  • Implementing MVVM in WinJS
  • Real World ASP.NET MVC for developers and architects
  • Just cause it’s JavaScripts doesn’t give you right to write rubbish

No hard feelings if you choose to follow the Windows 8 or ALM sessions Glimlach

So if you are not subscribed yet, go to the VISUGDAY site and register before it’s too late
