In late 2005, two internationally recognized web authorities—web standards godfather Jeffrey Zeldman and world-renowned CSS expert Eric Meyer—got together to create the kind of web design conference they would want to attend. Their new conference wouldn’t be just for designers. It wouldn’t be just for coders. Attendees would gain a deeper understanding of web standards, of course. But they would also encounter a world of emerging best practices and inspiring new ideas.
