Bridging UX & Web Development
Full-Day • 9am - Noon, 2pm - 5pm • Herron School of Art & Design
Based on the book by the same name, the intent of this workshop is to show you how to integrate with your development team and give you the CSS chops to contribute to the production code base. When you participate in the entire process, including implementation and testing, you will find that you have more control over the end product, better job satisfaction, and you’ll enjoy better relationships with your developers.
This workshop is intended for intermediate to advanced designers. Participants are expected to possess a working knowledge of CSS. They should be able to read a stylesheet and understand what it is doing in the HTML page that references it. They should be able to write CSS styles and apply them to HTML elements to achieve a desired layout on a page.
- Familiarize yourself with the tools you’ll need to integrate with your development team.
- Learn how Object Oriented CSS (OOCSS) can lead to cleaner, more maintainable code.
- Understand how Bootstrap benefits from OOCSS and how you can incorporate it, or better yet, create your own toolkit.
- Get started on your own library of reusable CSS components.
