Learn how to structure your CSS to allow for flexibility and maintainability as your project and your team grows.

Explore a workflow where we develop a limited number of reusable components that can contain a range of different content types.

Outline

This talk is aimed at CSS authors who want to improve their workflow, learn to write well-structured and organized code that is easier to build and maintain.

I’d be covering the concepts like ooCSS, BEM and SMACSS. These approaches would be useful for creating fast-to-develop yet long-lived projects that encourage team scalability and code reuse without having a steep learning curve.

Though I mentioned “front-end”, I’d be covering HTML and CSS alone. No JavaScript.

Requirements

Knowledge of well structured markup.

Good understanding of the cascade, specificity and inheritance in CSS.
