Shay Howe will be coming up from Chicago to join us and give a talk that he has been sharing at conferences all over the country. Shay recently left The Starter League to become the Director of Product at Belly. It's an honor to have him join us!
About The Talk
Problem: How to best maintain your websites code base, particularly HTML and CSS.
Solution: By discussing new practices on how to organize and modularize your code.
There are a million ways to write HTML and CSS, and everyone has their own, but is there a right way? Our code needs to be well structured, written in an organized manner, and performance driven. Sharing code with others should be a joyful experience, not absolute terror.
In this session, Shay will cover some best practices and performance tips for writing the highest quality HTML and CSS possible. Writing code is the easy part, finding a practice and structure that works well across the board is the hard part. Shay will outline HTML and CSS conventions that can be applied to your everyday practice.
Shay Howe has a passion for solving problems while building creative and intuitive applications. Shay specializes in product design and interface development, specialties in which he regularly writes and speaks about. Additionally, Shay helps co-organize Chicago Camps, Refresh Chicago, and UX Happy Hour. You can catch up with him on Twitter as @shayhowe or on his website at http://shayhowe.com/.
