On 14th of June we’re organising CSS Day, a one-day conference with eight top-notch CSS speakers about eight modules. It promises to be a nerdy CSS day with plenty of code examples, odd problems, compatibility issues, and subtle tricks.
The line-up is pretty good, if we do say so ourselves. Eric Meyer, Bert Bos, Stephen Hay, Divya Manian, Tab Atkins, Daniel Glazman, Peter Gasston, and Lea Verou.
Tickets are still available (and contrary to Mobilism, sales are proceeding according to plan). And it’s just €250. Pre-conference workshops (Eric Meyer on CSS, Peter Gasston on responsive design) are €300.
We’ll likely get a lot of answers to advanced CSS questions. Our personal favourite is “Can Lea Verou really talk about border-radius for 45 minutes?” It’s a puzzler, but she assured us she can, and we chose to believe her.
If you want to see for yourself, join us on 14th of June in Amsterdam.
On 16th and 17th of May we will organise the third edition of Mobilism, the mobile web conference.
On Wednesday 15th of May, the day before Mobilism, we have organised two technical platform workshops: one for Firefox OS and one for BlackBerry 10. Both are half-day workshops and a ticket for the two of them costs only €150.
One of the things I’ve been following closely these past few weeks is an initiative for a new kind of journalism here at home. To me it’s not so much about the journalism as it is about the business model, which nicely ties in with other initiatives in the US, and is probably even more succesful right now.
De Correspondent aims to become a blog and news site supported by subscriptions. See also this English article for a summary of what’s happened so far.
On 16th and 17th of May the third edition of Mobilism will take place in Amsterdam. Mobilism is once more going to be special this year, not only for its speaker line-up, on which more below, but also because this could well be the last Mobilism.
A few more Blink-related links. (This article’s title was

So Google created Blink, the new rendering engine for Chrome and Opera. What exactly is going on, and what will the consequences be?
