After the first two days of many sessions and events, post-conference workshops are a chance to dive-deep on a select topics led by some of the brightest in our industry.
Select from supercharging your Sass into your workflow; add powerful testing suites with visual regression; or bring clarity with your code with Jonathan Snook’s SMACSS Workshop. And, to make sure you don’t learn on an empty stomach, workshop registrations come with breakfast and lunch included.
The SMACSS Workshop by Jonathan Snook is a full day of instruction and exercises on writing HTML and CSS using a flexible and modular approach that will improve team efficiency and minimize problems with growing projects.
Have you ever added
!important or added an extra selector just to get something to style properly? Have you found yourself adding more properties to override properties you already set elsewhere in your CSS? Does inspecting an element in Firebug or Web Inspector reveal a long stream of styles being applied, overridden, and reapplied? Then this workshop is for you.
Do you work on larger projects? Do you work with larger teams? Then this workshop is for you.
You need not have played with the latest and greatest CSS3 and know what a vendor prefix is. You will need to know a selector from a property and have a general understanding of CSS-based layouts.
This workshop will shift how you think about writing CSS that will simplify your code, make your project easier to manage, and allow it to grow without creating an increasingly brittle system of dependencies. Your code will also be more portable, making it easier to use code on other projects.
Do you want to get up to speed with Sass and improve your web workflow? In this workshop hosted by Mina Markham, we get you up and running with a Sass compiler on your own machine with Ruby and Grunt.js.
After starting with basic Sass features, we will work towards creating your very own Sassy development ecosystem that includes enhancing your browser’s code inspector for Sass and writing your own custom Sass functions.
