Lea Verou has a secret. Actually, a whole book of them.
A self-described ‘web standards geek’ and former developer advocate at W3C, Lea’s writing a new O’Reilly title, “CSS Secrets,” in which she highlights more than 50 undocumented CSS tips and tricks to create better websites. The book is a result of her popular talks around the world on the subject.
“We use color every day, but how well do we really understand it? More often than not, we are merely scratching the surface of a large and complicated discipline.”
And on June 20th, she’ll be in Barcelona delivering her keynote on “The Chroma Zone: Engineering Color on the Web.” It’s not a typical design talk, but will dig into the technical underbelly and inner workings of CSS colors.
Okay, maybe you’re thinking “I know everything I need to know about color on the Web” – but you would be wrong. You’ll hear about how color works on screens, the difference between color models and color spaces, the underutilized features of CSS color, and what’s in store for CSS Color level 4.
Lea’s book hits later this year. You can pre-order it now on Amazon.
