Architecting Scalable CSS

Starting a new (particularly big) project is daunting, or at least it should be if you’re doing it right. However, there are a few things you can do in order to guarantee smoother developement, easier maintenance and more natural scalability.

In this talk Harry shows the optimal CSS architecture for building big sites, some handy naming techniques to make code easier to read and work with, some tips and best practices, and other bits and pieces he has picked up in his work at Sky and in building inuit.css.
