Refresh Chicago

Simple JS & CSS Management with Rack
presented by Avand Amiri
http://avandamiri.com/slides/css-js-rack.html

In most web apps, JS and CSS are a mess. There are few conventions when it comes to organizing these assets and modularizing them can introduce the HTTP overhead of multiple requests. In this talk, we'll discuss a new Rack-based approach to packaging assets using a lightweight gem called Stork. You'll learn organizational conventions, advanced CSS techniques with Sass, and simple ways to modularize your JS all while sending a tightly packaged set of assets to the browser.
