  • D.R.Y. CSS & Images

    5:00 PM Saturday   Room: 1501
    <p>Well-organized CSS and sprited images are important best practices for developing web applications. However, as the number of developers on a project increases, it's difficult to avoid duplicating CSS rules and nearly impossible to remove unused images. Sprawl just encourages more sprawl and what was once simple becomes an ugly mix of !importants, z-index: 9999, and sprites full of unused icons.</p> <p>We would know. Until last year, Box's code base had 100,000 lines of CSS and an image directory with over 500 separate images. We've reduced CSS by 97% and run the entire web application based on five image files -- and we've held steady ever since. Find out how we did it, and how to best organize and document your team's CSS and sprites so the quick, easy design changes stay quick and easy.</p>
