I just learned today that there are only 12 tickets left for my full day workshop at Midwest UX 2014. I believe that means I currently have 18 folks registered. This is promising to be a fun and exciting day. It excites me, because I expect many participants will be able to immediately put what they learn into practice, saving themselves hours of work and improving their satisfaction with their delivered products. Here’s what one attendee told me a few months after my workshop:
As far as the workshop, yes, I definitely have applied concepts to a few of our products.
Specifically, OOCSS is the biggest thing. I’ve made a conscious effort to use OOCSS when I’m laying something out. We aren’t to the point yet where we have reusable styles that cross product lines, but that is the goal. It is sad, in a way, as a few of our products use UI frameworks, namely jQuery UI. The frameworks use OOCSS all over the place. We couldn’t see the forest for the trees. It was right in front of our eyes this entire time, and we were still styling things by ID in a non-reusable manner. Now we are moving in a better direction, albeit slowly, and we may have reduced the amount of CSS that we write.
See you in Indianapolis!
