Ideally, I want everyone to walk out with their own skeletal beginning of a pattern guide. I be providing a dummy website to work with through the exercises. It will be important for them to apply the skills to their own code base afterwards, but the highest bang for their buck will be to follow along in class, see and answer and be able to work from there.

All material will be printed out and resources available ahead of time to give attendees different ways of working through the material to assist best in their method of learning.

There will be 3 exercises, one worked together as a class, one as individuals, and then paired exercise.

Who is this for?
Anyone in a company looking to compartmentalize like styles and needs to communicate with designers or other developers.

What do I mean by portable pattern guide?
You site styles might need to be included across sites/projects and you want to compartmentalize your assets/styles/brand so that it can get the widest use.
