On the day before the conference we'll organise two workshops, at the same time:
20 tickets are available per workshop. Both workshops will be held on Tuesday 3rd of June. They will run from about 09:00 to 17:00. The venue will be announced soon, and it'll be in the centre of Amsterdam.
Both workshops are 300 euros + 21% VAT. You will need to buy separate tickets for the workshops. The conference tickets are only valid for the conference itself.
Workshop Screw CSS! by Roy Tomeij
Would you like to start using the CSS pre-processor Sass, or do you want to use it more effectively? Then this workshop, presented by Roy Tomeij, definitely is for you!
Sass & Compass are tools to make your life easier, no matter if you're a front-end or back-end developer. Stop repeating yourself by typing the same selectors over and over, and no more painful processes to create and modify image sprites.
During this workshop you'll first learn the basics of CSS pre-processors: what are they, why would you want to use them, how do they work and how are they different? After that we'll start working with Sass, because nothing beats practical experience.
We'll then add Compass and discuss automatic sprite generation, responsive design with Sass & much more. After taking the workshop you'll master Sass & Compass at an advanced level (unless your brain suffers a buffer overflow).
During the workshop there's plenty of time to ask questions. A few weeks before the workshop takes place you'll receive video instructions to guide you through the process of getting Sass to work on your laptop (bring your own).
A selection of the things we'll cover:
- What's Sass?
- Data types, operations and control structures
- Extend, placeholders & mixins
- Built-in and custom functions
- Media queries & bubbling
- Compass and CSS3 mixins
- Automatic sprite generation
- Sass and front-end performance
- New Sass 3.3 features
- Structuring your Sass for maintainability
- Whatever else comes up
At the start of the workshop you receive all demo code, so you can follow along and play around with it.

Workshop Responsive Design Workflow by Stephen Hay
Forget fixed-width Photoshop comps and overproduced wireframes. Yesterday's web design deliverables fail to take into account the demands of responsive web design. Stephen will introduce a new workflow for today's web.
What you'll learn:
- A content-based approach to designing for the web
- The why and how of low-fi responsive wireframes
- How to "design in text" and use plain text markup as a base for design mockups
- How making a "linear design" can simplify the responsive design process
- How to determine breakpoints, as well as how to visualize and design for them
- How responsive, web-based design mockups are an effective alternative to Photoshop comps
- How to present your web-based design mockups
- A strategy for creating and automating a style guide for your design
This workshop is geared toward designers who aren't afraid of stepping out of their comfort zone, as well as front-end developers who are heavily involved in the design process. Designers will be encouraged to consider using code and other developer tools in order to make their work easier and their design deliverables more effective.
