This talk is recommended for Front-end Developers working on mid to large sized software projects. We will be talking code!
A number of websites such as GitHub, BBC and CodeForAmerica utilize live style guides to enforce visual consistency throughout their site and facilitate rapid building of user interfaces. You can think of a style guide as a living document of your front-end code and design decisions, outlining the elements and patterns used throughout your website.
Front-end focused Software Engineers Dave and Diego will talk through how we created our Style Guide and Pattern Library -http://neue.dosomething.org - and how we use it on a daily basis at DoSomething.org. Creative Lead, Crystal Ruth Bell will explain how we make design decisions as an organization.
Dinner and beer will be provided!
DoSomething will serve Chipotle burritos and a selection of beer.
