Awwwards #LoveDays Conference 2014 - Bruce Lawson

Article by Awwwards Team in Inspirational talks - May 16

Bruce Lawson, open web standards evangelist at Opera, joined us in Paris to talk to us about "HTML.next and CSS3 for Web Delighterfication in 2014".
His talk will show you some proposed CSS techniques that will not only become mainstream but also make your sites - and you! - even more sleek and attractive. Gasp in awe at the Turneresque grandeur of CSS Filters, quiver like Byron at CSS Shapes, look at some proposed HTML enhancements to make your sites feel delightfully performant, and all squeak "zut alors!" at {position:sticky}.
