My name is Estelle Weyl. I am a freelance web developer, speak and teach about web development on occasion, and am an internationally published author. I’ve been coding CSS, XHTML, JavaScript and PHP since 1999, tableless CSS since 2003. If you have any recommendations on topics for me to hit, please let me know via comments. At some point I will tell you a little about myself. But, in the meantime, I will spend time sharing knowledge I gain as I continue to develop websites.

Books and Writings

You can find me writing here about CSS3, HTML5 and the DOM. I write at Evotech.Net/blog about CSS2.1, XHTML, and Javascript. I write more intro level stuff and provide tech support for members at CommunityMX.com. Not yet finished is my first book, Mobile Web Apps: HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for WebKit.

Girl Geeks Unite

Part of the purpose of this blog is to demonstrate to all the school girls interested in technology: This is a great profession for women. And, to all the young women majoring in computer science, and all the other women who are changing their careers to be a technologist: you can do it!

A comment about comments

All relevant comments will be approved whether they slam my work or support it, as long as the poster legitimately identifies themselves. Differing opinions are o.k. The reason there is an approval process is because I have better things to do than weed out spam, and web developers have better things to do then weed thru useless comments.
