The inaugural Genesis Camp will be running for 24 hours this coming weekend (18th – 19th July).
I’ll be giving a short talk on my WordPress development workflow, so for the geekier readers out there, who like to delve into code (and beyond) pop by and check it out.
My talk will be on Sunday at 8:50pm BST (London GMT+1), 3:50pm EST, 12:50pm PST.
You can register to attend here. The event is running on Crowdcast. It would be great if you could swing by and show your support!
In the talk, I will be delving into building sites with WordPress, Genesis and Bourbon.
Bourbon is a CSS front-end framework that is lightweight and modular. It’s made up of:
- Bourbon – a Sass mixin library
- Neat – a semantic and responsive grid
- Bitters – a Sass folder structure and base element styles
- Refills – reusable web design patterns and components
Each module builds on the previous. Only incorporate the next module as and when you need it.
I’ll be showing the audience how you can use these technologies to quickly build and deploy custom websites. I’ll also be demonstrating:
- DesktopServer – for developing locally and managing website “blueprints”
- Gulp – a task-runner that compiles Sass to CSS, runs BrowserSync for live reloading browsers, lints and minifies and many, many other things
- Git – for version control and for deploying to staging and production servers
There are quite a few people presenting during the 24 hours so I’m sure you’ll find plenty of other gems amongst the speakers. It would be great to see you there for the event, but if you can’t make it the videos will all be available to watch at your leisure a short time after.
