September 2011 Meeting Report

At the September meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop, we started on our topic for this season, The New Web. We did an initial overview of the technologies that are going to change the way we make websites -- HTML5, CSS3, and the new browser API's which open up the creation of web apps. We looked at some examples such as Google's offline apps and Netflix's new user interface.

The book I have been using to prepare for these sessions is  HTML5 & CSS3 for the Real World from Sitepoint. You can download sample chapters from their website. They have a demo page with examples of the new technologies that are discussed in the book. We looked at that page briefly in September, and we will be referring back to it in future meetings as a good reference point. Open that demo in different browsers to get an idea of the various levels of support that are out there now.
