At TPAC 2008, Anne talked to the co-chair of the W3C’s CSS Working Group, Daniel Glazman. Daniel explains that at CSS-WG meeting, Dean Jackson, who recently left the W3C to work for Apple, put forward proposals for how to do CSS animations, CSS transitions, and CSS transformations – which, according to the WebKit blog, have been implemented in WebKit. Anyway, despite this video only coming out now, as it’s the CSS Working Group, which moves at near glacial speeds, all this is still highly relevant 🙂
Daniel also talks about a project, called BlueGriffon, he has been working on to create an open-source, cross-platform, WYSIWYG editor based on XUL runner. Daniel claims his editor will be different to what is out there as it will be more focus on Web designers work flows and design strategies using templates. Sounds pretty neat.
Anne interviewed Alex Mogilevsky here in Mandelieu during TPAC on CSS and the new Internet Explorer. Alex is a developer on the IE Team working on the new IE8 layout engine. He also participates in the W3C CSS Working Group.
Hi Standards Suck fans! Sorry for the delay between videos, we’ve all been really busy pumping out W3C specs and working on various things. Fortunately, Lachlan was allowed to leave his cave at Opera software and return to his native Australia for the 2008 Web Directions South Conference. While there, Lachlan caught up with author and veteran web developer, Kevin Yank, to discuss what sucks about today’s CSS support in browsers. Kevin discusses what developers really want from CSS, where browsers are at today with regards to CSS support, and using CSS table layouts in IE8. Do you agree with Kevin?
On the 20-24th of October we’ll be at the W3C’s 2008 Tech Plenary, where all the W3C Working Groups meet to share ideas drink and eat too much. We will have our trusty Web cams ready to catch all the action and get some great interviews. If you want us to interview anyone in particular, leave us a comment!
We are also working on a new design for the site so it doesn’t looks so sucky. Hopefully we should have something up before TPAC.
