Source Up! 2017 is cancelled

We've had to make the unexpected and tough decision to cancel Source Up! 2017. I'm sorry that it's not going to work out this year. Thanks to all the speakers and attendees for their support and understanding.

We hope to bring back Source Up! in the future, and that you can join us when we do. We'll post updates on @SourceUp.

Scaffolding CSS for Scale

15:15 on Monday, 18 September

Ever thought about localising your site, but realised it led to a lot of messy duplication? Do you want to re-use component styles, but have some styles overwrite others due to that cascade? Not sure where to start with CSS architecture?

In this talk, you'll learn how to get started with your own lightweight, localised CSS setup. We'll go through how we use Grandstand, a CSS framework built by BBC Sport, as the scaffolding for our CSS. Starting with bare bones of just ~10kb, it has the flexibility to allow layouts in 10 scripts for 20+ languages, and we’re using it across the BBC News & Sport sites.
