Modern front-end development has become a complicated mix of fast-moving technologies. The challenge for front-end developers is trying to keep up with the latest changes in Front-end. How do you find and learn about the best tools and techniques? And even after we've learned a new tool, it can feel like our skills are soon out-dated.

This session will expose you to the latest trends in front-end development and in particular, theming a website. We will discuss how building components vs. pages to theme a website can dramatically improve usability, flexibility and long term maintenance of your website. By building components through the use of style guides you can turn a large complicated project into a more manageable project.
