Brian DeVries — Recovering from nightmare CSS (Intermediate/Advanced)

We’ve all been there. We’re thrown in the deep side of the pool, on a project with unorganized and poorly written CSS. Brian will be showing us strategies to recover from these situations.

But you can’t just fix it and walk away! Don’t worry, Brian will also show us how to implement a style guide to improve team collaboration and code maintainability.

Brian has experience working on large scale enterprise software solutions. His focus is delivering scalable applications that meet performance and accessibility requirements of the end user.

Pez Pengelly — Flexbox and the evolution of layouts (Beginner/Intermediate)

Pez will take us from the beginnings of layouts on the web (yes, he remembers), finishing with an exploration of flexbox and why it’s quickly becoming a powerful tool!

If we’re lucky, we’ll hear him Karaoke-ing about topics like: how the web evolved to where it is now. How the web originally started with just markup, how it transitioned to inline HTML styles, tables, CSS, floats, positioning, css grids, libraries and flexbox.

Pez is a front end web developer and interaction designer. He creates responsive websites and awesome user interfaces. He loves working on products and services that make lives better.
