Full Product Description

Have you ever added !important or added an extra selector just to get something to style properly? Have you found yourself adding more properties to override properties you already set elsewhere in your CSS? Does inspecting an element in Firebug or Web Inspector reveal a long stream of styles being applied, overridden, and reapplied? Then this workshop is for you. Do you work on larger projects? Do you work with larger teams? Then this workshop is for you.

This full-day workshop will shift how you think about writing maintainable CSS that will simplify your code, make your project easier to manage, and allow it to grow without creating an increasingly brittle system of dependencies.
