Ever thought about localising your site, but realised it led to a lot of messy duplication? Do you want to re-use component styles, but have some styles overwrite others due to that cascade? Not sure where to start with CSS architecture? In this talk, you'll learn how to get started with your own lightweight, localised CSS setup. We'll go through how we use Grandstand, a CSS framework built by BBC Sport, as the scaffolding for our CSS. Starting with bare bones of just ~10kb, it has the flexibility to allow layouts in 10 scripts for 20+ languages, and we're using it across the BBC News & Sport sites.Amy Phillips, "This isn’t about Testing"
We spend so much time talking about testing. Have you tested this? Are you going to test this? Do you even know what testing is? I’m going to talk about why we should be talking about quality rather than testing.
Does this code bring you joy (a.k.a. value)? If not, delete! I'll talk about how to delete code and declutter your codebase.Anastasia Lopez, "Dependency Paralysis”
When we start learning to program we tend to rely a lot on Open Source, why wouldn’t we? There are hundreds of libraries that solve most of our problems done by smart people. But it can be very overwhelming to see so many libraries, and so many different opinions. So, where should you start? Who should you listen to? With this short talk we will try to define the best practices on when and how to use a library in your project.
We're looking for lightning talks! We'd especially love to hear from codebar students. Contact us at [email protected].
