London CSS November

  • Nov 24, 2016 · 6:30 PM

Join us for our final event of the year, an evening full of CSS best practices, new technologies and discussions with other frontend developers passionate about CSS. Beers and pizzas will be provided by our amazing host, Badoo.  



Style Guides, Pattern Libraries, Design Systems and other amenities.
Cristiano Rastelli | @areaweb

Style guides and component libraries are the new trend in front-end development. Everyone is into "Atomic Design" and "Modular CSS" nowadays. But how did we get to this “hype”, and why? What is a style guide, what is its value and where are the benefits of introducing one in a project? And are them useful only for the web, or can be employed by other platforms too? I'll try to give an answer to all these questions in this presentation – directed to designers, web developers but also iOS/Android/Win developers – and I'll show how our Mobile Web team in Badoo has developed his first style guide and how is using it to catch bugs and create a shared pattern library.

Refactoring CSS Without Losing Your Mind
Harry Roberts | @csswizardry

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.

    What a great meetup. Harry and Cristiano were both fantastic. I can see why this event had so many applications to attend.

    The night was well organised, had a nice, relaxed atmosphere and a very generous food and beverage offering! And of course, great talks. I picked up good advice and to-dos from both. See you next year.

    Hi y'all!

    Don't forget about the meetup tonight. Due to the limited space and the huge interest for tonight's event, we're going to have to check your RSVP when you arrive there.

    Great news everyone! Cristiano from Badoo kindly offered to replace Stu for tomorrow. So we will still have two great talks tomorrow.

    Cristiano is a great friend of our meetup and he's crazy passionate about CSS and his talk is very interesting.

    Hi all! One more day left until the event!

    Unfortunately, some bad news: Stu Robson won't be able to make it due to personal reasons. But we are in talks with him for doing his talk early next year.

    The talk from Harry Roberts is still on! See you all there!

    Hello to the group, do I bring my laptop with me to any practical work? As I'm newbie to CSS learning it on my course at the moment

    November 21

    • Razvan S.

      There's no need for your laptop. We will have two presentations, there won't be any practical work.

      November 21

    Quick reminder: this Thursday we have our next meetup! See you all there!

    Hey all,

    We're really glad to see the amount of interest generated by our next meetup. We spoke with the nice people @ Badoo and we extended the number of spots from 60 to 70.

    The waiting list is pretty big, so if you cannot make it, please update your RSVP so that others can be there.

      Are you filming this event?

      November 7

    • Razvan S.

      We are trying to film it. We've filmed our last 3-4 events but we are a bit slow with the editing, as none of us has experience with that
