Google I/O 2012 - The Web Can Do That!? Great presention by Eric Bidelman, covering some of my favorite new features in CSS3, some super-interesting bits of HTML5 like <datalist> and the download attribute, and some amazing A/V demos at the end (getUserMedia FTW). A fantastic preview of the next stage of web applications.
This is a great little learning session. My lord, I’m not gonna lie, I have a bit of a boner for CSS3 Flexbox. FINALLY, VERTICAL CENTERING.
