    Modular CSS - Best Practices for Using CSS Components in the Real World

    Aveline Thelen

    Are you intrigued by the idea of reusable and maintainable CSS? Maybe you've wondered what OOCSS, SMACSS, or BEM really looks like in the real world? This talk will give you a brief overview of the advantages of modular CSS and outline one approach to building with CSS components.

    Using a real world example, we will walk through a sample workflow from design mockup to CSS implementation. As we go I'll cover some of the tools and methodologies used in this approach and emphasize the benefits of using CSS components to create CSS that can be used again and again.

    <picture this> - Your Images, Responsive

    Morten Rand-Hendriksen

    There was a time when all screens were created equal. Those days are long gone and now Responsive Web Design can finally become truly responsive thanks to the introduction of responsive images.

    With srcset, sizes, and the element, truly responsive images are finally within our reach, and you can deploy them in production today. And with this shift from static to responsive comes a new way of thinking and new opportunities.


We tend to head to Tap & Barrel after the event to have some more drinks and some more nuanced conversation. If you can make it, we'd love to see you there!
