Refresh Chicago

Presented by Colin Harris at Refresh Chicago on March 17, 2010

Using CSS image sprites can greatly improve your site's responsiveness by reducing the amount of requests to the server. They can be, however, incredibly annoying to create and maintain. Colin Harris will give a lightning talk on why you should be using sprites, and how his useful Ruby library takes the pain out of the process.
