This episode of Shop Talk was filmed before a live studio audience. Thanks to Dan & Cherrie Denney for inviting us down to Front-End Design Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida. Chris played the banjo a bit and Dave wore a Floridian shirt. It is a spectacular conference and a lot of fun was had. We talked about (roughly in order):
- 3:06 Does the flat design trend affect your perception of a brand?
- 7:03 Why don’t more E-commerce sites use RWD?
- “You Like Apples” – Electric Pulp
- 17:05 Given the growing complexity, where do you start learning how to make websites?
- 22:40 Does being involved make our industry better?
- 26:56 I teach and Intro to Web class at the college level, do you think Sass is a good solution or should I stick to basic CSS?
