Last night I gave a talk to the largets crowd I have ever spoken in front of. There were over 100 people in the room and they were a great audience. I received lots of devoted attention and people were eager to participate. I was quite nervous in the beginning, but once I got into the material I think it came across very well.
I spoke about why to use CSS and what we can do to overcome some of the pitfalls. I also explained why we don’t want to be using tables for layout.

If you attended the presentation, I would love to hear your feedback in the comments. Thanks for coming!
