An evening with Harry Roberts: Refactoring CSS Without Losing Your Mind


Guest speaker: Harry Roberts of CSS Wizardry, live and in person at BOI Grand Canal.

Topic: Refactoring CSS Without Losing Your Mind

Working with CSS is tricky enough as it is; working with legacy CSS can be nightmarish. In this talk, we’ll look at how we decide what to refactor and when; how we can refactor code whilst still shipping features; how to avoid regressions when adding new CSS; how we can avoid the dreaded refactoring tunnels; running new and legacy code in tandem; and a bunch of other neat little tips and tricks.
