This is an overview session that touches onto all kinds of new developments in the wide field of web design. This talk is mainly focussed on client side technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) and outlines the news of the past months. If you have not been following the buzz lately, this is a good session to get you up to speed.


Konstantin Käfer


  • CSS techniques (e.g animations, transforms, web fonts, ...)
  • JavaScript trends (JS engine developments, frameworks, ...)
  • HTML 5 (recent developments)
  • XML & XSLT (on the client side)
  • Silverlight/Google Native client/Google Gears


You should get a feel for what's been going on in the last couple of months and what might happen next in web design. (This talk is not Drupal specific, but might point out directions Drupal could go).


None. You should be a bit familiar with the field of web development, though.
