Automate your CSS Workflow!


You know how to write CSS. You're using best practices, avoiding !important, reducing the depth of applicability, modularizing your selectors, and aggregating your CSS files. But what about the processes outside the writing of CSS?

In this workshop, we'll discuss automation, from tools settings and shortcuts to make users more efficient, to aliases, scripts and triggers. We'll work through common industry workflows, discuss best practices with CSS workflows, then set up processes tailored to specific cases for workshop attendees.

Join us in Vancouver on June 5th, at UBC Robson Square.

The Workshop

In this workshop, you will learn automation basics (command line, scripts, hooks, source control systems), best practices (organizing CSS files, preprocessors, linting, sprite generation), workflow enhancements (live-reloads, packaging, aggregation, compression), and testing (tools, browsers).
