About the Web Design Workshop: Grid frameworks share some common problems: they’re clunky, hard to modify and rely upon presentational markup. But the power of Sass can save us from frameworks. We can design flexible grids, create efficient code and ditch presentational markup for good. Learn how to create your own flexible grid system!

Originally educated in print design, Steve adopted the web as his chosen medium shortly after graduating from college.

An unflappable master of his craft, Steve loves a good design challenge. His finger is always on the pulse of UI/UX advances, making him the go-to guy to find out what’s next in design innovation.  Follow @SteveHickeyDsgn.

    Hi, I was wondering, is this the sort of event where if we're on the waiting list we might still be allowed to squeeze in?
