CSS for Programmers - Form Design

I will be speaking to our local Developers group here in Kalamazoo, in beautiful Southwest Michigan - at the MDSM meeting July 23rd. Details on the website. Please RSVP as space and light dinner will be limited.

This session is targeted at programmer/developers who struggle with CSS (aka Cascading Style Sheets) or those looking for some tips. I will walk through CSS as it relates to form design - not "content". Discussion on the use of floats, clearing elements, containers, and the various properties which help to make a form useful.

My work life is consumed by multi-tabbed forms/pages which are used for significant data entry in online applications which are replacing distributed forms. These forms are not your common "contact us" forms - but the principles are the same. Online forms are not web content - but they must live in the world of HTML tags...

Join me - the data flow will be fast & furious.
