Intro to Object Oriented CSS (OOCSS) Workshop


Object Oriented CSS (OOCSS) is a methodology of writing reusable CSS that is fast, scalable, and maintainable. If you have built a website using HTML & CSS, then you know that CSS is a basic language, but that it can be a challenge to use in large projects.  Without some sort of framework, it’s easy to end up with severely duplicated code, browser performance issues, and generally unmaintainable CSS code. Adopting a design pattern like OOCSS will help you eliminate these nightmares and make crafting your CSS a joy once again.

This workshop will examine the importance of a modular CSS architecture, profile the core principles of OOCSS, allow you to try your hand at module implementation, and touch on a few of the pros and “cons” of the system.
