80 tickets will be released on Monday 18th July at 10am here at SydCSS, then 80 more tickets will be released from SydJS.


Mobile Image Processing

Tim Kadlec | @tkadlec | timkadlec.com

Loading images isn’t as simple as you think. We often discuss image weight and download time, but mobile devices deal with many other challenges, such as decode times in underpowered CPUs, limited CPU/GPU transfers, and memory consumption. In this talk we’ll explain those limitations, their impact, and how you can best handle them on your own site.

Tim is a web technology advocate pushing for a faster web at Akamai. He is the author of Implementing Responsive Design: Building sites for an anywhere, everywhere web, and was a contributing author for Smashing Book #4: New Perspectives on Web Design, and Web Performance Daybook Volume 2.


Lessons learned — Building a CSS framework

Stephanie Rewis | @stefsull

In this short talk Stephanie will share some lessons learned and challenges faced, on the journey to build a stable but incredibly flexible enterprise CSS framework for the Lightning Design System at Salesforce. They've made some unique decisions, and experienced some growing pains around refactoring, BEM naming, rapid adoption across disparate verticals, and deprecation among other things. 

Stephanie Rewis is Lead Developer on Design Systems at Salesforce UX where she leads the team responsible for the CSS framework in the Salesforce Lightning Design System. Stephanie has been a front-end developer, passionate about web standards and accessibility, for over 16 years. She has worked with a wide spectrum of clients including Under Armour, Newsweek, MLB, New York Magazine, Adobe, Quiznos, Disney’s ‘TRON’, and a lively bunch of startups. She’s spoken at conferences including HOW Design Conference, UI16, An Event Apart, Microsoft’s MIX, Macworld, SxSW, Adobe MAX, among others. She’s a published author and has written for numerous publications. When not fighting specificity wars, she and her husband escape on their catamaran, Amritha.

      Buggy, slow and poor UX. Still, isn't that what JS is all about? Hey, stop throwing things!

      I belatedly hasten to add that my comment was a pathetic joke. SydJS has done a great job with the site.

    • Jon A.

      Hi - how do you un-RSVP?

      July 27

    • David L.

      There should be an option towards the top of the page that says "Your RSVP", below that there should be a "change" button.

      July 27

  • David L.

    Oh no, our regular photographer is ill :( If you'd like to step into their shoes tonight, then please let us know.

    1 · July 27

    • Rhys

      How desperate are you? I could detour and grab some gear for tonight if need be.

      July 27

    • Fiona

      Thanks so much for everyone's offering to help! We've got a couple of people who'd be able to help us so I think we are sorted now :)
