Apparently we got dugg again, and in the comments of the digg i keep reading that people would like screenshots. Now there’s one thing i do not have a lot of at the moment, and that’s time. So, this is a hint: if you enter in the CSS3 summer holiday contest with screenshots for all the previews we currently have, that would be much, much appreciated by the sole judge…
Once again, i can add a price to the list of prizes to give away in the summer holiday contest! The extra price is: a Professional license of oXygen XML Editor v7.2, which allows the user to use it on any OS (Windows, Unix/Linux, Mac OS X). That’s another $225 on the stack :).
In other news, i’ve had some people announcing they would join in the contest, but have only received ONE submission so far. So people: get them going!
The Summer Holiday contest is getting better and better, over the last week i’ve been updating the initial post to reflect the prizes i added to the list. The first submissions are coming in, and more are coming up.
In other news, i’ve tweaked the layout a bit more, tell me what you think of it!
Hello, I’m the third member of the new CSS3.info team. My name’s Peter Gasston and I’ve been working as a web developer for six years, currently as Creative Developer for a design agency in London (I would provide a link to their site but I’m still rebuilding it). I’m a passionate advocate of web standards and my dream would be to see either Internet Explorer embracing standards, or everyone else embracing a different browser.
I write for a number of blogs on a number of subjects; my most relevant would be my geek blog, where I get to talk about all the stuff I like that’s not necessarily mainstream. Like many projects of mine, it’s in constant development.
I’m excited about the new features of CSS3 because they might finally help us to get rid of ‘tag soup’ in our code; no more four-layer nested divs to create curves, for example, and many less ids and classes required to hook our CSS to. My enthusiasm is only slightly dampened by the fact that it will be many years before we reach that stage.
Im the second blogger/author to be added to css3.info and I’m extremely excited. I have become much more involved with CSS and Web Standards based design over the past year, then I ever thought I would be. I dove head first into a new project that started in October ’05 at dLife.com where we converted dLife.com from a regular table driven website supported by a shoddy CMS called OpenCMS, to a more agile ruby based backend with a css-based front-end design.
I would say at this point, dLife.com is 50-60% of being complete, but there is so much more to learn. The site is about 5,000+ pages, so there is still much to be done to get this site really cranking. My team and I are also learning ruby on rails, which is still a very new technology which nobody knows quite where it will go.
At the same time, I hope I can help other web designers/developers learn more about whats to come for CSS3. Joost and I are very excited to put together a great resource dedicated to CSS3.
