The title of the talk was a reference to a hugely popular book written by Stephen Hawking titled A Brief History of Time. I’m not sure this was clear enough, since I put a computer generated voice as an antagonist in a few of the slides and the reference fell pretty flat. Better luck next time I guess!


SmashingConf Barcelona — Zach Leatherman on A Brief History of that Time You Used Web Fonts from Smashing Magazine.

Slides on Speaker Deck (144 slides)


Paired nicely with the other amazing talks at SmashingConf, the event was held at Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catalana, rated as the #3 thing to see in all of Barcelona by TripAdvisor. It was beautiful.
