Meet Adrian Try

Adrian Try

Adrian, our Audiotuts+ legend, is our only locally based Tuts+ editor - though I use the word 'local' loosely, since Adrian lives in a much sunnier and more tropical part of Australia than we do! He's a writer and musician with a passion for everything open source. Adrian also has six kids, one of which works for Envato - though he refuses to let us say who ;)

About the Book

The Internet abounds with information on CSS based design. However it's spread across a large and disparate group of sites and can be very difficult to find. The purpose of this book is to pull all this information together in one place, thus creating a definitive guide to modern CSS based techniques. The book can be read cover to cover, with each chapter building on the previous one. However it can equally be used as a reference book, dipping into each chapter or technique to help solve specific problems.

This second edition contains:

  • New examples and updated browser support information
  • New case studies from Simon Collison and Cameron Moll
  • CSS3 examples, showing new CSS3 features, and CSS3 equivalents to tried and tested CSS2 techniques

What you'll learn

  • The best practice concepts in CSS design.
  • The most important (and tricky) parts of CSS
  • Identify and fix the most common CSS problems
  • How to deal with the most common bugs
  • Completely up to date browser support information
  • Covers CSS3 as well as CSS2 showing you the future of CSS

How to Enter in 10 Seconds or Less

    Browser Testing in the Cloud ReduxBrowser testing cloud redux retina preview
    I've written quite a bit about browser testing solutions trying to help identify techniques and tools that make cross-browser development easier. My last article on the subject covered how to use BrowserStack to test any number of browsers all from one central tool; your own browser. I was on a Windows PC back then so testing multiple browsers was a bit easier and testing tools were mainly complementary to my work. Now that I'm on OS X, the need for tools to round out my testing strategies is even more important, specifically because of the lack of Internet Explorer on the OS. I'm a bit of a stickler for what I install on my computers and I prefer online tools when available. I'm also always on the hunt for new tools that make cross-browser testing easier and decided to give CrossBrowserTesting.com a run. I'll go over some of the key features of the service and how to leverage it to improve your testing capabilities.Read More…

    How They Did It: Alice in VideolandAlice retina
    This summer I started building a modern retelling of "Alice in Wonderland", an interactive storybook web app by the name of Alice in Videoland. It ended up being featured in a sister article in Adobe Inspire as well as turning into an encore-winning presentation I gave at CSS Dev Conf 2013. The project was meant to be educational, a testing ground for new CSS animation techniques and desktop-to-tablet JavaScript. I keep Alice's source up on GitHub where anyone can examine my code, but sometimes it's nice to have someone go over the reasoning with you.Read More…
