CSS3 Selectors

I have been presenting various versions of this talk for over three years, updating it each time to ensure browser support information is correct and the advice current. I have also presented this material to a wide range of audiences. From beginners to CSS to back-end developers who needed their knowledge of CSS refreshed.

An understanding of modern CSS Selector use is vital for any web designer or developer and this talk is useful for any event where attendees may be new to CSS or need an update on modern techniques.
