SXSWi 2006: CSS Problem Solvers

So as things go, it appears that I’ll be on a panel at this year’s South by Southwest. It’s entitled “CSS Problem Solvers”, and I’ll be sharing the dais (wow, I just used “dais” in a blog entry) with four ridiculously talented folks: Charles Wyke-Smith, Lisa McMillan, Christopher Schmitt, and Dave Shea. The point? Well, the five of us want to help: we’re hoping to work through real-world CSS issues faced by, well, you. We’re planning on taking live examples of problem style sheets, and whipping them into shape before your very eyes.

Picture The Italian Job. Then picture CSS. Then picture something even dorkier than what you’d get if you mixed those two things together. Welcome to our panel.

So, if the three of you would indulge me, here’s what I need: quite simply, we want to hear about the style sheet issues that keep you up at night. If you’re having problems with your CSS, then kindly take this survey that Herr Schmitt tossed together for us. Let us know about some CSS issue you just can’t work around: send us your tired ids, your poor classes, your inheritance woes, your container divs. Rest assured that Dave, Charles, Lisa, Christopher and I will do our very best to make the pain go away.

Also, if you’re very lucky, I might pimp a beverage other than Kool-Aid: I’m thinking Fresca, but if I’m feeling saucy, then it’s Tang all the way. You’re on the edge of your seat, I can tell.

At any rate, I hope to see one or three of you at this year’s SXSW; it should be damned epic.

And yes, this makes for two posts in as many days. I think I need to have a lie-down.


Hooray, technical difficulties.

There’s a WordPress issue that’s currently preventing old comments from displaying correctly. Sorry for the inconvenience, but hopefully we’ll be back online soon.
