RMR Charity Workshop: Front-end Architecture with Sass 3.2
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (MDT)
Front-end Architecture with Sass 3.2
Front-end architecture is hard. Structuring your code for long term maintainability, optimizing for speed & retina and handling this thing called "mobile first". During this workshop we'll focus on front-end architecture from a back-end perspective for modern day, responsive web apps. A high level overview, driven by your questions with hands-on exercises to get the most out of Sass 3.2.
For demo's I'll be using a Middleman app (http://middlemanapp.com/) with the source code for the demo's on GitHub. I suggest running Ruby 1.9.3, but older versions should work too. The demo will come with a Gemfile that requires Middleman, so setting things up should be trivial. If you don't like surprises, install Middleman beforehand and create and run a new project. If that works, you're golden.
These workshops, while free to secure a ticket, are all about raising money for local charities. You will need to make a donation to cover the sessions you wish to attend. You can do this at the event or ahead of time. If you are making a donation beforehand you will need to bring your printed receipt of your donation. Most sessions require a $30 or more donation. There are special reserve tickets for supporters that donate $100 or more for a session. We are offering a few seats at this level as a way to encourage those to give more than the minimum and be recognized for it. For instance, if you wished to attend Play with Ruby and The Hashrocket Way, you could make a single $60 donation to cover both sessions as the minimum.
Our overall goal is to top $5000 total. Please be generous and help our meet our goal! Here is the list of our local charities:
