Eric Meyer is interviewed exclusively for the 12 Days of Podcasts series sponsored by Mailchimp.
Dave Shea joins Eric Meyer and Jen Simmons for the third episode of in The Web Behind series. They talk about the CSS Zen Garden, a website Dave created in 2003 which showed the world how radically-different designs could be with just CSS. Dave also reflects on the origins and lasting effects of the CSS Sprites technique he introduced to the world, and reminisces about the web design community of a decade ago.
John Allsopp joins Eric Meyer and Jen Simmons for this first episode in our “web behind” series — a look back at where the web came from and the people who created it. They talk about early web design tools, community groups that shaped the web, thinkers from the mid-20th century who shaped ideas about hypertext, and much more.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, John Allsopp by himself has seen and done more on the web than most web teams put together. First encountering the web in the early 1990s, he built one of the very first CSS tools, Style Master, and a number of other web development tools; published a wealth of information like support charts and free courses; wrote the deeply insightful and far-seeing article “A Dao of Web Design”; influenced the course of the Web Standards Project; and founded a successful international conference series that continues to this day.
A special announcement from Jen Simmons and Eric Meyer.
The Non-Breaking Space Show is a podcast by Christopher Schmitt, Dave McFarland, Chris Enns interviewing the best and brightest of the web.
Our guest for this episode is Eric Meyer.
Eric has been working with the web since late 1993 and is an internationally recognized expert on the subjects of HTML, CSS, and web standards. A widely read author, he is the founder of Complex Spiral Consulting, which counts a wide variety of corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies among its clients. Eric, along with Jeffrey Zeldman, is the co-founder of An Event Apart.
Anyone building websites nowadays owes a great deal of thanks to Eric Meyer (@meyerweb), both for his contributions to web standards and CSS in general as well as to our community with the books and articles he’s written and the An Event Apart conferences. Along with Jeffrey Zeldman, which I spoke with last month about AEA coming back to Atlanta, I fired up skype and talked a bit about conferences and speaking at conferences with Eric Meyer. Talking with him about what he’s into right now, I got an emphatic “CSS3!”. We can definitely count on Eric to help us sort out the details within CSS3 as we all get deeper and deeper into it. As always he’s actively testing and writing about it for us all. I asked him for a tip on first time talk givers. “The audience is on your side” is what he shared with me, people have come out to hear you either entertain, educate or inspire them so all they want you to do is just that. So you don’t need to apologize, or freak about winning the audience over, they all want you to succeed. Remember that you’re speaking because you have something great to say or share, so bring it! That’s great advice for me personally and one i’ll take into account the next time I get up in front of a group. As with my last post on AEA Atlanta, the lineup looks amazing. Turns out this is a fairly unique lineup for an AEA event, so Atlanta you’re special!
