Demystifying CSS For Developers

Nice job. Helped reinforce some CSS concepts. I'll look forward to your SASS talk some other time :)

The printed schedule said this talk was called "power up your css with preprocessing" or something like that, so imagine my disappointment when it was all about the box model and floats. I won't blame Justin for that. However, even the online schedule says "common pitfalls" and implies it's kind of an intermediate/advanced talk, but the box model is something you should have learned the first week. I think the talk should have been called "CSS Layout 101" and he could have fleshed it out with that goal in mind.

I also didn't think the float examples made the concept as clear as it could be. This page has some clearer pictures (in my humble opinion):
