Frontend Tooling Post-Conference Workshop

The Build Right Frontend Tooling Workshop will help you eliminate development pain and friction by introducing you to modern development processes and tools. Staying ahead of the curve is difficult, and it’s easy to quickly feel out-of-date or left behind.

We’ll help you make the leap into Preprocessors of all kinds, plumb the depths of your favorite text editors, get you up and running with source control (tldr; use it!), discover browser development tools, and explore the best ways to test your code across a range of browsers and devices. To top it all off, we’ll mix in all the other tasty essentials you’ll want to know about: the dreaded terminal, performance tuning, automated deployment, and much more!

We want you to walk away from our workshop feeling empowered to work faster, cleaner, and with more confidence in your frontend development role. We promise that you’ll leave the workshop with your head overflowing with alternatives that challenge the way you’re writing code today and that you’ll be ready to hit the ground running tomorrow.

CSS Animation In-Depth Post-Conference Workshop

Did you think CSS was just for “prettifying” the web? Join award-winning cartoonist and CSS nerd, Rachel Nabors, for an in-browser cartooning session.

Learn how to use HTML5 audio sprites, CSS3 animations and the very few, but very powerful JavaScript techniques to create animations worthy of a production studio. This fun romp is sure to inspire you while showcasing the bleeding edge of CSS.

SMACSS Post-Conference Workshop

The SMACSS Workshop 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. It takes the SMACSS e-book and brings it to life with practical examples and in-depth discussion.

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.
