Your website has out-of-control CSS bloat. You know your performance is being impacted, but how do you move from organic CSS with no particular architecture to something lighter, more logical, and easier to maintain? In this session, Nicole Sullivan and Stoyan Stefanov will show you how they improved the CSS at Facebook and Yahoo! Search. After this session you will know how to:
1. Use lint tools to automate and evaluate the efficiency of your CSS
2. Avoid the top 5 causes of CSS bloat, and
3. Speed up your site by making the UI code an order of magnitude smaller.
