Turning Designs into Code

Friday, September 16, 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM

Turning website design files into a combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript is the bread and butter of many front-end web development jobs, but there’s a part of this work that doesn’t neatly fit into tutorials on any specific topic. The process of breaking down a design and figuring out how to approach the build is not something taught alongside core technologies. It's a core professional skill that front-end developers have to figure out on their own, or learn from more senior developers after being hired. In this talk, we’ll take a look at how to go from designs to code, and why you might want to follow a process instead of just diving into code head-first. The contents of this talk are based on my experiences onboarding new developers, the kinds of conversations we’ve had, and the help and feedback I’ve provided in those situations.
