Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS

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 e-book and brings it to life with practical examples and in-depth discussion.

We will end the day with some hands-on exercises! No, not jumping jacks (although some stretches might be in order). We will take attendees’ projects and step through them as a team to determine where we can apply the lessons of the day. We will also look at other live sites (big and small) and see how we can apply the principles of modular design to them.

Who is this workshop for?

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.

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.
