Like the proverbial phoenix we have risen! Kieran is back and we finally wish each other a happy new year. This episode we try and get to the bottom of why we weren’t nominated for a Net Award, this as you might imagine takes a while. We ask the the other burning question of the week, that being is Harry Roberts (the one and only CSS Wizard) really under 25. We also manage to chat about some of the recent happenings in the web industry – no really we do. It’s good to be back.
Being a CSS expert is about more than just memorizing selectors. It’s also about working to improve the maintainability and efficiency of your style sheets, planning for the future, and mastering your workflow. This session will look at pushing the limits of CSS to create stunning interfaces using clean, meaningful markup. We’ll also look at CSS 3 and at what the future of Web design could look like when CSS 3 finally becomes mainstream.

At Webstock 2008, Dan Cederholm discussed some of the details on the Web that personally “wow” him and why.
This week we were joined by Nicole Sullivan, a long time web veteran, originator of OOCSS, CSS lint, and tons more. Nicole is definitely a thought leader in the modern web development world who is often ahead of us all. We’ve watched OOCSS start out as this abstract and highly criticized concept turn into a pretty commonplace practice on large sites. We talk about (roughly in order):

- Is there going to be a book on OOCSS?
- Recognizing when many elements have the same classes, and making a new class that @extends the old ones.
- Can you use the body element like you would a page-wrapping div?
- What tools to we suggest for validation in the modern world, especially as part of a workflow?
- How does SMACSS compare/contrast to OOCSS?
- When do you call yourself a professional designer or developer?
- How about universally setting elements to position: relative;
