atMedia slides

I’m done with my speaking stint for @media 2006. The slides are now online.

The talk, Using DOM Scripting to Plug the Holes in CSS was also recorded so at some stage, there will be a podcast available (which I will get transcribed).

The talk went pretty well. It followed the usual structure:

  1. I talk about JavaScript and try to make it more interesting than it really is,
  2. People ask questions in exchange for free books and
  3. I finish up the presentation and people come to me afterwards to pick holes in my code examples.

I kid, I kid… thank you to everyone who said hi and thank you to everyone who came along.

"I finish up the presentation and people come to me afterwards to pick holes in my code examples."

Everyone’s an expert…

What is the name of the slideshow software you are using for the presentation? I have seen it in a few places, but have not been able to track is down.

@Joey: Jeremy used Eric Meyers’ "S5: A Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System". You can find more information over on Eric’s website:

Your addClass code snippet and subsequent demonstration of using it to color list items solved a problem that cropped up for me just last week: other iterations of "zebra tables" code (including yours and Aaron’s from SXSW, and the code snippet from Bite Size Standards) seemed to stripe only the first table on each page — all other tables were ignored.

We’re using it for our new look-and-feel template (not yet official).

I was at the conference too. I sat in the other presentation when you did yours so glad you’ve put the slides up so soon. I’ll be getting the book in a short while, I think.

Hopefully the audio from this and the other presentations will be made available too.

I’m coming to your blog to pick holes in the code :) the rounded corners example doesn’t work in IE6/WIN…
