An open event for the wider Melbourne community in the heart of the CBD. Whether you're coming to CSSConf AU or not, you're invited to join us, meet our speakers and attendees, and play some rad retro video games.
Our roles in a user-centric design process and how our work can make an impact on people's lives.
The history of colour in the physical world: how it works, how artists use colour to trick your brain, and code demos of those tricks.
A detailed look at four (and a bit) different ways to provide various types of theming functionality in your UI projects.
Born 400 years before the web, Isaac Newton, physicist and mathematician, was a visionary. Motion, optics, gravity, and calculus. Although they seem miles apart, CSS and physics must be put together whenever we face animations and transitions. Today, thanks to an unlimited resource of theorems and laws, we can make smoother and more credible animations by simply applying a little bit of physics to web design!
We will focus on techniques to deliver our CSS (& dependencies) in ways that boost performance and broaden access, without compromises.
What's the role of Front End Ops and where does it fit into our development lifecycle? How can it help us build better products?
As they say, one-size-fits-all usually fits none — and that's the same for CSS frameworks! Just like pants, tailoring a framework gets you a better fit. I'll dig into how and why AirBnB forked Bootstrap for a leaner, meaner UI toolkit!
Animations can make the web engaging, fast and playful. Used judiciously, they can dramatically improve the user experience. Embrace them!
How SVG's features allows us to build better interfaces by providing us with an accessible and more semantic way for building UI components. I will argue against using some CSS-only techniques and show how they can be replaced with a better SVG approach.
It’s 1556, and Pierre Haultin is punching a completely impractical, metal font: it’s space-efficient typographically, but far too small to read in print. He intentionally looked for the boundaries type can perform within. Centuries later, we face a similar dilemma...
The impact of animation on the user's experience is often an afterthought. I'm showing how animation can help make any interface more usable by explaining and demonstrating the animation's techniques I've used on the online email builder tool created by Campaign Monitor.

Be prepared to say goodbye to some much loved design patterns and CSS techniques as we look at the remarkable things we've done with them, remember fondly where they came from, why we used them and ask ourselves why (oh why!) are they no longer needed. In our grief we also will look at some new techniques and patterns that you can use now to help you move on.
The qualities of being "clean" and "simple" are often sought by designers of user interfaces, but what do these words really mean, and how do they differ (if at all?) What makes cleanliness and simplicity so desirable in the first place?
Components, containers and modules, they're the future. But we've got a lot of past too. We need front end development that is unopinionated, compatible with legacy projects, forwards-looking towards web components, and can be used today.
When designers and developers work together from the start, it improves a product's adoption and user experience. But how can we get designers involved and wanting to participate in the open source community from the start? We'll focus on actionable steps and what we can do right now to create a more inclusive open source community.
After two mind-blowing days, join us at the impressive 1000£ Bend gallery space for a night of visual installations and live music. There'll be drinks, food, amazing people and disco balls. We wouldn't miss it for the world!
