I'm at my last conference of the year - ConFoo in Vancouver. Today I'll be presenting on new CSS layout and tomorrow on interesting new things more generally in the CSS specifications.
I'm looking forward to a few weeks at home over Christmas, we're closing in on our launch of Perch 3 so I have a bunch of CSS to wrangle for the UI, making sure it all plays nicely in the older browsers people find their clients still using to manage their websites.
In other news 24 Ways is under way for Advent, bringing a new web design or development related article each day. The pattern library used for the site is live at bits.24ways.org. This uses the excellent Fractal, and the design and front-end development work is by Paul Robert Lloyd.
